Ok I'll address this a little more.
When I cooked on one we made some great BBQ, Pizza, Burgers and Steak. I did 6 butts one weekend for a block party with no issues.
As in my LBGE that I have now I used mainly RO lump and chunks of Hickory or apple. Build the fire with a paper towel with Veg. Oil drizzled on.
Just be careful with the hinge and which I understand has been redesigned. The issue starts with the top and bottom not being aligned which lets in too much air.
Good luck with your new Ceramic!
