Lump Disappointment
 
My wife was at HD today and called to tell me they had TruCue lump on seasonal clearance for $3.18 a bag.

I looked it up and saw it didn't get very good reviews but I figured it was worth a shot at $3 a bag. They had about a skid worth so if it worked out, I was going to buy them out:clap2:

But the reviews were right. Campfire smell and taste is all I can say. Ruined some chicken breasts stuffed with cheddar and asparagus. I was hoping to catch a break with good results but that didn't happen.

Sad thing is... They wanted almost $8 a bag (8.8lbs bag) regular price. I wouldn't use that stuff if it were free.

Good to know. Thanks for the report.

So I'm assuming you don't like it? :biggrin1::biggrin1::biggrin1:

Thanks for your opinion..... I can avoid a disappointment if I ever see it.

At $3/ bag, it'll work fine for chimney fodder! Thanks for the heads up!

I haven't had any bad experience with any brand of lump, only that the cheap stuff is small and broken up. I'd definitely give it a try for 3 bucks but maybe only on some hot dogs.:biggrin1:

That sucks Joe. I guess you can stick to using it for 600 F plus self cleaning sessions. If you can't cook with it maybe you can scrub with it.

Good to know

I will say the size of the chunks were large and there wasn't much small/dust in the bag. But the smoke smell and flavor were just too much for good cooking.

That's a good idea... Thanks for the tip

It's not always easy to find, and you won't see it on sale very often, but Ozark Oak lump is excellent.

Fwismoker 09-10-2013 09:13 PM

This thread got me looking for lump reviews. I found a very good one on nakedwhiz

It's worth checking out, I think i'll stick with RO...rated good on that site and it's always done me right.
