David82 Posted July 22, 2020 Share Posted July 22, 2020 Hi, New to the forum and a BBQ novice in need of advice on maintaining heat! I bought a Weber chimney starter last Summer having previously struggled to start my BBQs off. I love how simple it is to use but having recently started using it on my 57cm Weber Bar-B-Kettle I've noticed the temperature appears to drop not long after placing charcoal in the BBQ. Ive been using Big K charcoal briquettes and stacking the white coals on one half of the grill, leaving the other half for indirect. I generally leave all three vents open underneath and the vent on top open and positioned above the indirect half of the BBQ. Is there anything I need to consider when maintaining heat? If I lose heat can I just add more briquettes directly to the BBQ and if I do that do I need to stop cooking until the additional briquettes have gone white? Any tips or advice on this would be much appreciated! Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
