  1. I finally got my Big Joe a couple of weeks ago at the local roadshow and have been learning to cook on it. The food has been awesome, but I'm not sure I'm using the correct technique to get my Joe up to cook temps. It has been taking me about 45 minutes to get the Joe up to 350-400 F and an hour to get to 600 F. Does this sound right? I've been using two of the KJ fire starters in the coal and leave everything full open until they start to catch the coal on fire (around 10 min). I then close the lid, but leave the top and bottom fully open until I get within around 20 F of my cook temp. I then close the upper lid around half way and begin to adjust as necessary. I realize the Big Joe has a lot of mass to heat up, but was expecting time on the order of 30 minutes or less. As a former gas griller, do I just need to be patient or are there some tricks I can use to expedite things? I would appreciate your recommendations.
