I usually just dump about a half chimney of lit coals on top of the filled ring, but last time I thought I'd get cute, so I sat the chimney in the center of the ring and poured the KBB around it. Then I put about a half chimney in and lifted the starter out, leaving a nice round hole in the middle. Lit the coals in the chimney and carefully poured them into the donut hole. For some reason it didn't seem to work as well as the old method. Temps came up slower than usual and I ran out of fuel at about the 7 hour mark and had to refuel to finish the butts. I'm going back to the old way.
