Marty, we use about half and half briqs and lump for longer cooks. It is kinda like the best of both worlds. Briqs are a nice even burn and the lump is a little more pure with less ash. It's a nice combination. I am really puzzled why Tricky would make the comment that briquettes are a dirty word. Where did that come from?
