You got it, bricks is just slang for the briquettes. Kingsford blue qualifies indeed. As far a s the adding lit or unlit bricks during the cook, that will depend on your situation. If you need to bump up the heat fast I would add lit. If you are just adding more fuel minion style add them unlit.

I don't have a drum but do burn Lump and comp. briquettes on occasion. Anyways I hadn't been over to the charcoal review in awhile and after reading this thread I meandered over there and came across this review. Kinda sad and almost humorous when they described the smell.

I tried some Kroger brand bricks yesterday. Never again, the smoke looked like it had a yellow tint and didn't seem to burn all that clean.

So far the best and cleanest bricks I have used has been Stubbs. It burnt nice and clean and long.

I use lump, either Maple Leaf, or rarely Kingsford Charwood. For the odd time I use bricks, it's Maple Leaf. Nothing but ground up charcoal & wheat starch for a binder.

Both. Bricks seem to last longer and lump gets going quicker and hotter. I use a mixture largely based on how long I'm smoking that particular run.
