Prob 20 unlit briquettes to a 10 lb bag of lump. It breaks my heart every time I do it but my last 4 comps of 35-46 team fields I have went 3rd, 1st, 2nd, 1st.
I know that exact smell and taste you are talking about, it takes me back to when I first started Qing. I used to like it too but since I went to lump I don't care for it anymore. I can see why you use it for comps - I feel your pain. lol
I'm thinking of getting an old smokey for comps too, it's much portable than a UDS. But then again after looking at Donnie's UDS makes me want to keep it in the rotation and perhaps pimp it out a little
