  13. Just to clarify I do not have a Big Green Egg I just like their lump charcoal, it has worked the best for me.  To help with the bark I mixed Apple juice and a little water in a spray bottle and sprayed it about every half hour after it hit 140.  Should have started spraying it earlier.   It only took about 10 hours.
