Slow 1st Load. I have a site that is built with ASP.NET. I really need help w/ this.

Hello, I am having a really hard time figuring this out.
I have a site that has a very long load time on the first visit. Then it is very fast for the rest of the time I use the site. I know it compiles, but I can only be idle for about 1-2 minutes before I have to wait for the long load.
I have about 1800 301 redirects. Could this be it?
I wrote a page that frames our site and then refreshes every 5 seconds. I ran it from my computer and 2 hours later I visited the site. This worked.
I don't want to have to keep this page running on my computer 24/7.
I put it on a cron job on another server to duplicate this. I did a get contents in php. I also tried the frame, but neither have the same effect.
In the apps he set the purge info to 2 hours, so this 1st page load lag should not be happening.
The developer I'm working with can't figure it out either. Please give me any suggestions. I'm freaking out here. Thanks.
