Default I used royal oak lump last night, first time

Went to the store where I normally don't buy my kings ford blue. It was very expensive so I tried royal oak lump. Wow it got hot quick! Only thin not too pleasing was it popped quite a bit is this normal? I just used it cooking hamburger on kettle. How well is it going into a UDS basket long term?

Most lump will pop, that's very normal. I ran lump in my UDS and everything I have used and I like it better than KBB personally. I prefer the smell and they way it burns much more than KBB.

It can burn pretty well in the UDS..my last long cook was 17 hours and it stayed pretty close to 275. I don't use lump alot since KBB or royal oak briquettes are usually cheaper but i always keep it in my tool bag. The big benefit i like is less ash with lump.

I almost always use royal oak lump. You dont get as much milage as kbb, but I agree, the taste is much better imo.

Never use anything other than royal oak, nature glo in my grill or Uds. Although I'm tempted to try the royal oak competition briquettes

I use RO lump in my drum, but I mix in about 1/3 Stubbs bricks to help maintain temp.

I use RO exclusively lump and briqs, nothing else. Haven't seen RO competition yet. Where are you finding it and what color bag?

Out here the Lazzari Lump is more available but I picked up some RO Lump a couple months ago. Yea, it snap, crackle and pops more than the Lazzari for sure. Flavor was great. Went to get more at Wallys but it was gone. I would use it again.

I always use royal oak as well...a big bag of lump is about 6 bucks if that and since the first bag I have never went back to briquettes. I have no problem with lump lasting. I usually have some left in my basket after my cooks.
