Interesting to say the least.

I have to ask one question though, wouldn't your ash weight be more representative if you had same starting weights pre-burn instead of number of briquettes?
You're original K starting weight was already more than the comp K's starting weight.

Probably, but it's too late now. You can pretty easily calculate a very close
starting weight for each using the briquet weights.

It comes out to a little over a half ounce more competition ash.
Sorry, I guess my college years of spending WAY to much time in lab is coming back to me

Good review!!

How can that be? I weighed the ash and the comp weighed just shy of twice
as much? How are you getting only a half-ounce difference, and in the other
direction? I don't get it.

Used decimals for ease
10 briq. original K = 8.625 oz ; each individual briq. = .75 oz
10 briq. comp K = 6.25 oz ; each individual briq. = .625

12 briq. original K = 10.125 oz
12 briq. comp K = 7.5 oz
2.625 oz less comp K; divided by .625 = 4.2 extra competition briq.

Ash comp K = 1.625 oz divided by 12 briq.= .14 oz per comp briq multiplied by the extra 4.2 comp briq. = .588 extra comp ash

So total ash would be
original = 3 oz
comp. .588 + 1.625 = 2.213 oz
.787 oz. more original K ash

Sorry I am bored and it is cold as H$LL out!!

I still don't get it. I weighed the ash on a scale. Why do you need to calculate what's
been weighed?

Oh well...

Kingsford had a program at the American Royal, if you were using the Comp coal and won a catagory, they matched the winning prize money. We won the pork catagory and Kingsford matched the $1250.00 first place money. Ya Kingsford!

Yeah, but did you zero out the scale for the tare weight of the pie tin?


Nice job! Thanks.




But this is useless without a test using two WSMs with Stokers for a burn time comparison at a constant temperature.
OK, I'll go visit the penalty box now!
