Thank you Dr. B. Probably like most of the men in the world, Tim Taylor and Tool Time were inspirational to all of us. So following the Tool Time lead, most of us bought the Benford 9000, high intensity blow torch / charcoal starter. (Cause most of us wouldn't use lighter fluid even if the sun was burning out.)

Dr. BBQ provided a hint for smoking as opposed to grilling.
'Let the temperature creep up to the desired temperature instead of getting the bed of coals really hot and trying to bring it back down.'

It makes sense. I've had problems in the past with too high a temperature on the external thermometer. I always thought that I just couldn't starve off the fire by closing vents due to inherent air leaks in the smoker.
But part of this could have been because the temperature of the smoker (Green Egg/Primo) itself was still retaining the heat from the original fire.
