Question about lump charcoal

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Just curious if lump charcoal sits over the winter if it will not burn as long as before or if it is just my imagination.
thanks

I've never noticed any difference after they have sat around over the winter. I do notice after a long period of rain, they do tend to absorb a little bit of moisture.

I guess that might be it then because for some reason this charcoal that would last for hours from a handfull or two now won't last 10 or 15 minutes

Getting moisture in it will happen, but that tends to slow down the heat given off, and extend the time it'll burn/smolder until it gets the moisture out of it...

I find all lump charcoal to be less consistant than brikettes (spell?) but I still love it.

Even if its inside, it can get damp = moisture.

What Bubba said..........I have found that briquettes are more stable.......But not necessarily the best.
