I will say when I am done I put the ceramic cap back on and put the daisy wheel back in the egg in the open position. Lot easier to take off the ceramic cap.
If you do light with a MAPP or Weedburner, watch for sparks. On a wood patio I use paper towel with veg oil. Off the patio a weekburner works well.
Low and slow I like to light lump at 12, 4 and 8.
Ribs are a good try for a new cook. Let's you get a good handle on maintaining temps over a period of time.
