I start with a chimney of Kingsford briquettes and then just add hickory chunks. Im going to get some larger pieces, more firewood size so they will burn longer

I used to use briquettes. A couple of years ago I switched to lump charcoal, usually Royal Oak or NaturesGlo, and haven’t looked back. IMHO it gives a better taste and lights easier than briquettes. cool smile

All of the above isn’t a choice smile  Well… All except propane.  I use briquettes or lump in my Weber Smokey Mountains, Lump in the Big Green Eggs, other (pellets) in my pellet grill and smoker and wood in my offset.  I guess i am an equal opportunity fire starter smile

hey Thom.  do you do that cause it’s faster than waiting for the pots to heat, or have your igniters gone out and they’re too expensive to replace?  just wonderin.

and hand sanitizer, really?  I guess they should make a hickory scented one LOL

ha!  I can see it now, topics like:  any find the lump sanitizer?  OR did kingsford change their formula for soap briquettes?


I hear ya on the ignitors.  heaven forbid the firepot isn’t cleaned out good enough and 20 minutes later you have no fire and a huge pile of pellets to clean up.  I still have a stash of gel fuel I found on the clearance rack at wally world.  I’ll have to try the hand sanny…. unscented, of course!

are you vending any particular style of pit these days?
