So I did a run with Humphreys natural briquettes last weekend. Intersting. you can actually see chunks of lump in the briquettes. Smoked like crazy on start up then only saw smoke from the wood chunks during the cook. The ash was very light and fluffy like lump. Unfortunately, it still almost went out after the guru shut down post temp spike. I need to do a better job stacking the briquettes so the fire is able to spread.

I use a chimney starter full of lump to start a basket of Post Oak and Pecan logs ala the Minon Method. Briquettes and Starter Fluid? Neither of those nasty things will ever see the inside of my fire box!

Completely agree. 1 bag of Royal Oak Lump burns for 15 hrs in my UDS @ 230* or 8 hours @ 300* with a third left over. No real packing needed, just dump it in shake it a bit to settle and light it. The only temp swings are usually self induced by making too many adjustments instead of letting it do what it does.

in a UDS or a WSM, yeah it probably doesnt matter. In an Insulated reverse flow vertical, it makes a world of difference.
