I start with a full chimney of Kingsford or lump, dump it up against the wall of the firebox closest to the smoke chamber. Add 1 split log on top, close the firebox lid and forget it for 45 minutes.
All dampers wide open. That gets me to 250 in about 20 mins to half hour. My grate is at the height that the fire is just below the bottom of opening, I think its the second shelf level. I'd go check, but my bandera is 3000 miles away right now.
