Lump works fine, but you gotta be a little more careful when loading the basket than you do with briqs since the pieces aren't nearly as uniform. It burns hotter and faster, so it's good to keep an eye on your pit temps if you don't normally use lump, but yeah, it works fine and leaves a lot less ash too.
