I've got 2 22.5's. one runs 225-40 lickity split, the other likes 275. I can maneuver either to change temps, but that's where they each settle in.
So I agree, don't fight her and cook at 250*.
Or, sure, you can use water in the pan and start with @ 1/4 chimney of lit.
Also, once you got a good amount of cooks on it, it'll seal up and be easier to control.
