I fired up the KJ to do pizzas - loaded up the box with a metric F*ton of charcoal, and lit it in 5 spots. Sat back for an hour or so (while checking in every 10 - 15 mins) to let my red egg of love come up to temp. at about the 50 min mark, noticed: a) temp was sky-high b ) blue flames were shooting out of the hole... my prior experience with blue flames have been from an entirely different hole... i threw the pizza on, and after 2 mins, the edges were absolutely cremated. Like throw them in an urn and stand up in front of a church to talk about how wonderful the crust was when it was alive and how you totally didn't think it was a total bitch. after the first cremation, i shut the bottom vent, and 50%'d the top vent until the temp dropped to 450C, then opened the buggers back up for the 2nd pizza, which came out quite nicely. anyway, just wondering if any other peeps have seen these blue flames, and any advice about wtf is going on would be greatly appreciated...
