All good advice in this thread.
Waiting for the BWS to come up to temp just kills me!
One method that I gleaned from the BWS forum for starting was removing the heat deflector and filling the waterpan as the pit starts reaching your desired temp. I speed things up by preheating (and burning/cleaning off the cook grates) the cook chamber with my weed burner, replace the deflector, check the coal tray to see how much has fired off and set the Guru with the pit probe on the door thermo.
