    Default Using briquets in a ceramic cooker

    I was given a bag of Kingsford Competition Charcoal to test out.
    Instead of using it in the WSM I decided to use my Primo. Did a brisket low and slow for 14 hours keeping the temp under 235. Worked prefectly no ash problems, off flavor or smell.

    Then did a high temp tri tip cook searing at 600 drop the temp and finished tri tip at 127 internal, again no problems with ash or temp control.

    I'm not with Kingsford nor I have deal for charcoal, just asked test and post what I found.

    Thanks Jim! Kingsford has a long way to go in the BBQ community. Maybe this product will help them earn another small portion of the market.

    Appreciate your review. Any plans to use / test it in another style of cooker?

    Thanks for the review. It sounds good. I looked at some the other day and didn't pick any up when the price was $ 9.00 for 12 pound bag at HD. That may be something that will hurt the sale of it, is the price.

    Briqs in a ceramic???

    I might try it - never put any in the egg before - scared of the ashes.

    Thanks for the info!

    At that price, I feel good paying $11.00 for a 20# bag of mixed hardwood natural made from hardwood lumber cutoffs. Briquettes are an option of last choice IMHO.

    I never tried the Green egg lump but have always used Royal Oak and Maple leaf. I'm amazed at the low ash of RO.
    Of all the methods I have used to light my UDS or egg I prefer the "twisted paper towel" method the best. Load and light, no babysitting and by the time I have prepped my groceries I'm usually greeted with thin blue and a steady temp.

    BGE lump is made by Royal Oak so you'd be happy with it except in most cases it is slightly higher in price.
