I cooked with lump in my UDS for the first time two weeks ago and then last week. Ill never go back to Briquettes. Lump does burn hotter, but I was controlling the temps pretty well so far. As far as long burns, two weeks ago, I smoked for 14 hours and still had 1/2 basket unburned. Used that last week for some beercan chickens and tonight I still had unburned coals left from that burn last week. Packed it tight, though, which helped I think.
Got a burn going right now and have been cruising at around 245-250 for about two hours now...doing me an all-nighter.
Im luvin me some lump.
