    When you say "LUMP" , can you redefine? Like Lump hard wood charcoal, or are we talking like actual lump coal ?

    Lump, as in lump hardwood charcoal. From my experience, it burns hotter, lights easier, and lasts longer.

    It actually burns a little faster, but in a drum that's not an issue because you are in total control of the combustion rate.

    Think of it as being what briquettes are before the pulverize it, add all the fillers, and then compress it into briquettes.

    Thumbs up lump

    OK, thanks for the lesson on fuel. I have been using a lot of Briquets and a little lump hardwood charcoal. Now I'll try reverse the process. Or just use the Lump hardwood only

    There's really no reason to use briquettes unless you just really want to.

    Where can one get lump at a reasonable price? Around here it's about three times as much as briquettes!

    Jeff,

    your in warren, check menards/lowes/home depot maybe even wallmart . If at all possible I stay away from cowboy lump. That gets harder to do off season like now. I have never seen lump for more than briquettes. Dunno

    Its got more junk in the bag, doesnt burn as well, weird flavor, but if that is all you can find, like me right now, our options are a bit limited unless I travel further (momma aint gonna let that happen) or order it on-line.

    I use primarily royal oak, I am getting it at Menards in my area but I know others carry it. OHHH yea, another place to pick up big bags of lump is at your local butchers shop. Both of mine carry it, a bit more expensive, but very convenient!!
