  • Re: 12hrs and holding steady

    Here is a photo of what is left after 13hrs @ 250ish.  The lump burned down right to the top of the firebox, where is normally what a full load looks like for me.  I am sure I could go another 10-12hrs easily.  Thanks again Jeepster!
  • 12hrs and holding steady

    I took Jeepster's advice and loaded my large to right below the top of the fire ring and I am right at 12hrs @ 250deg and she is holding steady.  I recently replaced my firebox and I am not so sure that BGE didn't possibly slightly redesign the firebox.  My old one was 15yrs old.  In any case, I pulled the boneless half of my butt off at 190 and she is resting.  Based on what I can see below the platesetter, she still has a LOT of lump left.

    Thanks again to the Jeepster for doing the research and sharing with us eggheads.

    Very nice table indeed!  I like it...very clean and elegant looking.  Enjoy your new table.
  • Re: Need help! Frustrated...why won't my lower vent adjust temp!!!

    The  thing I would look for is plugged or partially plugged air holes in the firebox.  Sounds like you may have an airflow problem.  I find that if I have a bag of lump with mainly small pieces and try dumping those in first when putting a fresh load of lump, the small pieces tend to "plug" the holes in the fire grate and the firebox and I struggle with temp.  A fresh setup (ash removed, ensured firebox alignment, clean holes in fire grate and box, fresh lump with bigger pieces on bottom) and my bottom vent opened ~ 3/8" and my daisy petals completely shut with the vent slider opened about 1/4", I typically will hold at 350deg forever.  Good luck and Merry Christmas!
