So I got some lump bamboo charcoal and wanted to see how hot and for how long it would burn. Filled my basket, then dumped in to the chimney to get it burning. Seasoned some thighs with this. Temps stayed around 380 for 45 mins. Pulled the thighs then. But kept watching the temps. After 1 hour the bamboo was all burn up. I used apple for the smoke. Finished pics. They tasted awesome. Thanks for lookin.
