Ur not paying attention to the things that matter. Hands down the comp kicks the sh&% out of the blue bag for smoking. Wanna make some burgers on the Kettle? Well that's another story. But for smoking...well, it's apples and oranges to compare lump to a pressed filler packed charcoal. For all of you voting for the blue bag, no disrespect, but you need to do some more research on what you're using. They really shouldn't be compairing the two.
And for the record. The competiton lump is marginal at best. Very ash-y. But not bad for something I can pick up at the grocery store.
