I found a nice metal rod prize in my R.O. this week! First time I've found something in R.O.

A local dealer sells The Good One brand lump, and it seems to be about the best scoring on Nakedwiz, so I will pickup a bag or two this weekend. This isn't because of my R.O. find, I've just been wanting to try it out for a while.

I also found some cement in my last bag of RO, in addition to some lump made from scrap 2x4s. I tried one back of Trader Joe's and it had the nastiest smell ever. The point is that I think there is variability in many brands, but more so in some brands.

Royal Oak is available from the DoItBest hardware stores. There are several stores in KC.

We should start a contest to see who gets the largest and/or oddest foreign material in a bag of Cowboy. But that would mean we'd have to buy it.

And it burns a lot faster then oak lump, B&B oak lump is a good charcoal source RO is also good I do find weird stuff in RO a lot but still buy it. If you want a good briquette charcoal you should go to Lowes and buy some Stubbs about 9 bucks for 15# bag good stuff.

I like the Stubb's briquettes too. I like RO lump and I have found small rocks in the bag a few times and an occasional piece of scrap lumber. No big deal. I use Wicked Good Weekend Warrior Lump once in a while too, but the store that carries it near me is very expensive, 24.99 for a 20lb bag.

Regular old Kingsford briquettes work well, unless you are dead set on lump. Naked Whiz has reviews of most lump charcoal out on the market, which can be very helpful if you see some bags of lump that you have never heard of. Again, though, you cannot go wrong with RO lump.

As far as the heat goes, my guess is you are starting with too much lump in your chimney. Assuming you are using the Minion Method, you should only be dropping a couple lit pieces of lump into the charcoal basket. If you are using briquettes you should not need more than 10-15 briquettes. For lump, depending on the size, I try and use maybe 4-5 medium size chunks. The more lit charcoal you start off with, the harder it will be to maintain a low temperature.

Hope this helps.
I glad I came across this as I have been having difficulties keeping a long burn on a full basket of lump/charcoal. I am only getting 3-4 hours on a basket and am trying to get longer times.....

As mentioned in another thread, lump can cause issues in a UDS. Have you tried with regular briqs? Right now, Home Depot is running a sale on Kingsford. I use KB in my UDS with no issues and I stock up when they run sales. I just found it works better with maintaining consistent temps. Your mileage may vary.
