Whole heartedly +1
I feel unburned briquettes give kind of a off flavor tha I don't care for, really noticeable in kingsford blue. With my vault preheated I can cook 8 hrs @300-325 and still have a little left over. Don't ever put my briskets on before 6 am and they are always done before noon. I have found the 10 lb bags of lump to be better than the 20 lb bags which get slung around and have lots of fines in them.
