Firestarter thru bottom vent or daisy wheel.....

I shim my lid during the winter to keep from completely closing when I cover it....

What do you use to shim the lid?

Hi all,

Thanks for all your suggestions. This community is great. I was able to get it unfrozen by lighting some firestarters and putting through the bottom vent. They lit up my leftover lump and about 15 minutes later my dome was at 300 degrees and it was all unthawed! I did a little more reading and I'm going to try to place a layer of aluminum foil between my gasket so it doesn't re-freeze. Here's the article I looked at, maybe deserves a sticky during this time of year? :-D
