    Some times it is preferred. Lump tends to burn hot and fast were as briquettes burn pretty even. So the idea is if you mix them you can get the smoker up to temp quicker with lump and hold her steady with the briquettes

    Go for it just do not forget the pictures

    Good advice from Cheech. Write down everything you did in a log. Amount, mix, etc.
