So KBB may not be that bad in retrospect if I light it in a chimney. The amount of ash was the biggest reason for the switch to lump.
KBB charcoal is fine charcoal to use. Starting it in a chimney and you will get a nice clean burn with it without the taste of petrolium products.
I switch between lump charcoal and briqs depending on what is onsale as well as using a mixture of both. The amount of ash produced by briqs though makes using them in my Mini's tougher as they will fill the ash bowl much quicker.
