if you leave charcoal briquets in the shoot, they may take on moisture and swell, i do this with lump, but it does not seem to hold moisture the way briquets can.

i can pretty much now time my cooks, so i just run it empty and put fresh in.

I never had much luck with lump and getting a consistent burn, but I have also never had a cooker designed like this, so I'm sure I'll give lump a go sometime. I'll give it a go in my mini again as well, so I can try to settle on one type for my charcoal cookers (aside from the KBB holiday pricing deals).
