To start a cook on a kamado-style ceramic grill using your Flame Boss®, we recommend fully filling up the firebox with lump charcoal. Light just enough charcoal in the center top of the lump charcoal and allow sufficient time for the fire to start so that when you add the diffuser plate, grill grate and the Flame Boss® pit probe clipped to the grill grate, the charcoal will stay lit. Close the grill lid and plug the pit probe into the controller. Attach the Flame Boss® kamado blower to the kamado adapter plate that is inserted in the air intake vent on your grill. Make sure the top vent of the grill is closed almost all the way. If the pit temp overshoots the set temp by 10˚F or more, close the top vent all the way until the pit temp lowers to the set temp then open the top vent slightly.
