That's the reason not to pour directly into cooker. There no reason to smell or taste foreign objects that could be culled out. Just look into what you're using then pour. Steve.

It looks like a tooth from the machine they use to scoop it up. They are usually replaceable since they wear.

I love Wicked Good WW. I'm in NH so it's fairly cheap. I pay $16-$17 for a 22# bag. My only complaint is a lot of times the pieces are TOO BIG!
I usually have to break them into smaller chunks. I do sometimes find a piece of concrete in there but that is about it.

I am so farkin' jealous. I found a chunk of UFO-shaped concrete in Cowboy lump that was nearly a foot in diameter and weighed well over 5 pounds (the bag was significantly heavier than the 10 pounds advertised). What you have there is REALLY cool though. That is better than anything I've ever gotten!

I have some WG but usually save it for my long cooks. Like you I have to bust up the "logs". Only object I've found in WG has been some nylon cord.

It does look like an axe head! Maybe MartyLeach can make me a fancy custom handle for it & I can use it as a lump buster!

Looks very similar but yours looks a bit more lethal!

You're probably right about it being a tooth.

Wow, 5+ lbs! That's got to be a top contender for largest & heaviest object!

A live toad.

I poured in the lump and when I went to stir it around a piece jumped. Little farker scared the heck out me. He was covered in black dust and blended right in (until he jumped that is).

It is a shame Wicked Good is so expensive. I have a friend who sells it and I often trade him rubs and sauce for charcoal. Don't tell him, but I usually get the better of the deal. I also usually save that for long cooks and use RO in between.

This seems like a box of Cracker Jack. I found a 6" chunk of asphalt in my last bag of RO. I've found a few rocks here and there, nothing too big and also some wire. I agree that the Wicked Good is excellent but expensive. And no complaining about the pieces being to too small either. There are some big, dense pieces in there.

i feel left out as i've found little to nothing and i do go through it instead of dumping it. i did find rocks in an off brand bag of lump. i think its just something thats to be expected. for sure if it rather heavy, contact ro and they should get you another bag.

I certainly wouldn't care to find insulation or a toad in a bag but this...
