Briquettes may give you more consistent temps, but they leave a huge amount of ash behind. Once you get the temp dialed in, lump is no harder to control than briquettes, plus you have no nasty fillers flavoring your food, less ash, and better aroma/flavor.

I know we all use legs on the bottom of our baskets, but air flow is only involved in that the space allows the ashes to fall down out of the charcoal. Once the air is in the drum, the fire will use it, regardless of where it comes from.
