I've found that when using lump in my uds I gotta keep my temps a bit higher (between 250-275 on my thermo) than with briquettes (225) or it starts to go out.

I've also found that on a LONG cook (more than 12 hours) that with the minion method I've had lump burn down to the bottom and go out on me and leave an unburned ring on the outside of my basket.

I do prefer lump for short cooks. For long cooks I prefer briquettes or a mix of briquettes and lump (saw someone else mention this).
