Yeah, the tealight I found to be a pain too....what I do is wrap a piece of tin foil around the tea light and twist to make a handle...so it resembles a kind of frying pan with the tealight the pan part obviously! Makes getting it in and out easier.
Regarding the wind, I usually place the CSG on the lower rack of the Excel 20, light the tealight and put the top stacker, rack and dome lid on. Leave for a minute or so then remove the tealight and pop the bacon, cheese whatever on the top rack.
Sorry if this sounds like an advert from Pro Q...it's not, I just have their products and have been happy with them.
