Heat control on a 12 inch DO:
1 coal = approx 25 Deg
2/3 coal on top and 1/3 on bottom
350 deg = 14 hot coals or 5 coals on bottom and 9 coals on top.
Great starting point
a stiff nylon bristle brush is great for clean up. Also having a beater (unused) paint bruh for oil is nice. I have been known to use a tin foil ball to clean and paper town to oil in a pinch.
