I like to use the Kingsford comp charcoal but I also love the ole blue I have often wondered about the two different styles but never had the gumption to do the test you did and I am sure I would not have gone into as much detail as you have, so Thanks for the hard work and great information it seeing tidbits like this only reminds me why I joined up and love this site so much
Thanks Again
RR

Awesome work sir. Very useful info. The only other thing I might add is, if any of you think you can do a better study, step up and do your own 20 hour experiment!!!

Binder used might explain the weight difference, i.e. clay, cornstarch, etc. That, along with the ratio of lump vs filler, would also explain the temp diff because of the amount of filler used to form the briq. I was wondering if anyone has experienced a flavor profile change between the two on a long burn?

Interesting test. Thanks for the info. In case others were not aware, here is another comparison of Blue and competition from a site which normally tests lump, and included Wicked Good natural briqs as well. Of note, I'm not sure if their findings are in line with yours on burn time, either on a smokey joe or on a BGE. Not calling either test wrong, just different.

No problem.

The Costco two-packs are new larger 18-lb bags.
