I used this lump and I like it. I'll have to be careful though because it does burn hotter than regular charcoal.
The pit did want to run hot at first, until I got use to this, but it didn't take me long and it was my fault, but she calmed down and settled in.
And the price was good too.
12 dollars for a 22 lb bag is not bad at all.
I'll do a few more cooks as soon as work settles down and experiment a little more with lump to see how little is needed and how long it will last to get my firebox timing in order.
Cooking is like therapy, it keeps me from doing dishes...
