    Yay or nay?

    I picked up two bags of it for this weekend and the first bag burned great but I had quite the ordeal maintaining temperature on my Brinkmann Smoke'NPit with the second. At first I thought maybe it was the wind because it was kind of breezy here today but just to be sure I threw some Cowboy lump in that I had laying around and the temps started to climb back up where they should have been.

    Shouldnt be the lump. Nature Glo is made by Royal Oak, it's their restaraunt/commercial grade. I use it, and never had a problem except for the concrete and slag ya find in there...lol

    Never heard of Nature glo. Normally I use Stubb's to start and mostly wood after that.
    Personally I think lumo burns way to quick since it is about half burned to begin with and to me a personal preburnt piece of wood gives you a much longer smoke time.
    Noticed you live in Winston-Salem, I love Texas Pete!

    I used their bricks and they weren't worth a darn.

    I wouldn't have thought so either but I was able to hold 225* with ease on the first bag but the second bag fought me the whole way. It was much breezier when I started on the 2nd bag and at first thought that might be the issue but when I put in the Cowboy lump it heated back up. Does Cowboy burn hotter?

    I did get a chuckle out of finding several barely charred pieces of moulding in the bag of Cowboy.

    I am doing my research about using wood but I am not quite there yet. :)

    Texas Pete is good stuff. [​IMG]
