Starting a fire in a Lang 60
I recently purchased a used Lang 60 Deluxe and I have a question. I have read that some fellow brethren Lang owners start their fire with lump and then add splits (or not) as the cook progresses. In watching the Ben Lang video on starting the fire he recommends taking the fire to over 300 degrees before putting the meat on and letting it settle down to cooking temp (225-250). So for you guys that are starting with Lump do you take your fire to over 300 degrees to start? If so then obviously a Minion Method is out of the question.
