I haven't tried it, heck I haven't even tried out my PBC yet, just got it last week.

I would think your assumptions are correct tho. That being said, I know there have been a couple other posts from those who have used alternative fuels from the KBB in their PBC's with good results.

Probably a few practice cooks to get time and temps where you lik'em and your good to go.

I did lump in mine once. Didn't really care for it. Burned too hot too quick.

I did a half and half of RO Briquettes and RO lump one time also and it was a little better.

You could use lump but like already stated you will have to adjust cook times because of the temp increase. Also don't be surprised if you had to add some fuel. Try it out and see

On a side note: I burn Stubb's Briquettes in mine regularly and have great results. Never actually used KBB in it so can't speculate on a comparison between the two.

i tried it..

would recommend sticking with kingsford. The lump burned hot, and uneven, and it went out on one side from the drippings of the meat.

try it.. your mileage may vary.

I'm guessing some high quality charcoal like Stubb's is probably the best one to use in it.
