For smoking I've always used KBB with perfectly acceptable results. I've been thinking more about switching to Lump but am hesitant as it burns fast and concerned about having to reload mid session. I 'm liking more and more the idea of having a clean burn with no chemical additives. I have a 18.5 WSM. My ribs only are on for about 3-4 hrs max as I finish them the oven (i hang them so its hard to rehang them after wrapping) so i figured a full ring of lump in my 18.5 shouldn't be a problem. My briskets on the other hand are usually on for 8-10 hours then get finished in the oven. I typically smoke on the higher side at 275 for everything and use a PartyQ stoker. Based on this information any thoughts and direction would be appreciated. Specifically what's your favorite lump? Ive been poking around http://www.nakedwhiz.com/lump.htm and want to hear other thoughts.
