None for me really except I have more wood than charcoal at the moment

I figured as long as I could get up to temp and ok to feed it every hour that would work for me.

I know Travis from M grills says you can use just charcoal or lump but that it's not that efficient. My Good One smokers work great but are not fuel efficient at all.

I love the adjustable grate system for grilling and have an older Hasty Bake that has that feature but like I said, I need to reduce the inventory a lot.

I really would like to get down to just one grill/smoker but that is probably not going to happen because I can't decide what to keep and what to get rid of.
I hear you 100%. The OR does go through charcoal so I only use it for short cooks - itís really great for reverse searing.

This is the first time Iíve tried reverse searing on the M1 and Iím really pleased with the result, especially with the sear box but that might be confirmation bias

I have the HB as well and love it - no plan to get rid of it but honestly itís redundant with the M1. BTW Iíve Iíve heard Travis say some are reporting 5-6hrs on a full basket of charcoal and a stick but I have never loaded it up like that because I am cheap so I canít verify
