My question is what do most of you use for fuel at competitions? I use Kingsford, because that is what I've been using my whole life. I know what its going to give me. I also only use 2 22.5 WSM and two 22.5 kettles at competitions. I just was wondering what other people use and why.

When I use the barrel to smoke my brisket hot and fast, I use the blue bag, and a few chunks of wood, it's consistent, and don't have to worry that much about the temps during comp time.

Kingsford comp is a Kingsford brand lump charcoal. Lump charcoal is a natural charcoal created without the binders, release agents, and other chemicals found in the blue bag Kingsford.

Lump charcoal is harder to light, but generally burns longer and hotter than briquettes. See [URL="http://www.nakedwhiz.com"]www.nakedwhiz.com[/URL] for everything you ever need to know about charcoal.

Like the DOS XX guy says "I don't always burn charcoal, but when I do I burn Wicked Good Weekend Warrior blend."

I use Stub's because it I can get it at any Lowes. Other brands, besides Kingsford, can be hard to find all the time. With a gravity fed smoker, I hesitate using lump because you can get bridges. So, I go with the briquettes. I would use Kingsford Comp if I found it.

Kingsford Competition is not lump. It looks just like the regular but uses Borax( I believe) as a binder and not byproducts from coal burning power houses! Just for the record I use the blue stuff as well when not competing.

Royal Oak products first for us. The extra ash and funky taste from blue k is not what I like to serve. Steve.
