Think I'm gonna go back to briqs exclusive to test and tune in my skillz, then experiment.
I was getting 12 hour burns on 5 pounds only have to kick the can for ashes maybe 2 to 3 times.
Its been a struggle with lump. Another positive my Blue bag K briqs are the good kind from what I read. I use the Lump cuz I heard lots of talk about the petro smell from unlits. However I never smelled it. Then I read that east of the rockies tend to get hickory and oak in their briqs. I would ave to agree, all the briqs I have ever used smell great.
