To light it, I just hold it over a tealight candle for a minute or so then remove the tealight and let it smoulder.
I have found that draft is a big factor in using it....with the lower vents on the Excel20 open but the access doors shut I get ~5.5hrs out of it, with one of the access doors open I get about 3-4hrs (but it has been windy here).
Thank you so much man! Your idea here is one of genius. Simple stuff usually works out the best. All I gotta find to try this out is smoking woods that will work. All I can find or have is the chunks and no way that's gonna work!
I'ma use it on my Weber Performer so maybe that will be enough space for the heat to dissipate and not heat the inside up. It is 40 degrees here during the day right now in Alabama, so maybe that will help.
