Question Lump vs. Charcoal

Which do you prefer and what brand? I have used all kinds. Just wandering how many different selections this will get.

GFS lump in my stick burner just to get it going. Not a lot of junk in it. Burns HOT!

Lump only. My favorite is The Good One, but I also like Kamado Joe, Big Green Egg, Royal Oak and Fire King.

I have both. Still trying to figure out which one is better.

Lump burns hotter and sears better.

Charcoal holds temp better and longer.

Stubbs briquettes are all I use in my Superiors. They burn clean and produce little ash compared to K.

I had settled into buying Stubbs brickettes or Cowboy Lump, but I've just started making my own lump and I'm very happy with it. Made 2 batches now & have about 80 pounds on hand, so I doubt if I'll be buying charcoal except as a backup.

I tried going with lump in my superior, bc of the whole idea that is burns cleaner, but, two for two, it got caught up in the chute, and didnt burn correct, causing a nasty smoke flare up, like when ya just start the coals. It sucked. Made my food have black crap, so i went back to Kingsford Competition Briquettes. In my gravity fed smoker, i say briquettes are best.
