Filled charcoal ring. Started chimney with 15 KBB briqs.

Had 1 slightly larger than fist sized and 2 smaller pieces of cherry.

Once chimney was lit and ashed I put coals roughly in the middle. put middle section on and then the lid. All vents open at this time. Once dome temp hit 225 I closed the bottom vents to 25%.
