I am sure this has been discussed a lot on the forums, I am still pretty new here.
Now that I am getting the hang of smoking, especially using the minion method with a charcoal basket - should I consider going from briquettes to lump? I have only been using Kingsford Briquettes to date - doing my 4th smoke today. I picked up a couple of 20 lb bags on sale at Lowes, so I still have little over 40 lbs to go through . Obviously will use that up first.
From what I have read, I understand the real benefit to lump versus briquettes - is the lump burns hotter and cleaner?
So, does it burn up faster than briquettes? I think also from what I have read here, is the lump is a little more clumsy to get sorted in the basket for the minion method, might have to take time to arrange them by hand?
So think I should consider going to Lump, or stick with the briquettes now that I know what I am doing with them?
Just curious, thanks,
