Thanks Dan, are you saying that you run it at 3/4 open or 1/4 open once you get up to temp?

Also, do you start with room temp water, hot tap water or boiling water?

Josh printed out a manual for me and emphasized to not start out with much more than 1/4 of a chimney of charcoal!

I am sure I should have started by doing a burn exactly as Josh recommends but I was to excited to see how lump would react!
