    Kingsford for nice even temps. Great for overnight cooks.

    Lump for everyday cooking. Cleaner smoke quicker. Hotter temps if needed.

    How long would a full basket of royal oak last at 225 do the temps stay stable

    Temps will move some cause of the odd shapes of the lump.

    If you pack the basket well the temps will hold better thou.
