Coconut Charcoal

A few days ago I picked up a 10kg box of Charcos for $25. This is a coconut charcoal. I wanted to try to make some beef jerky. I had the DigiQII and was hoping to keep a long slow burn with it.  The coconut burns clean so food can go on right away. No need to let the smoke clear out.
The little pieces of lump, I would almost call them pellets, were placed in the bottom of the egg. I used about 15 pieces I stacked them like a pyramid so there would be good air flow. Lit the top one with a propane torch, set the DigiQII to 165, put the meat on, closed the lid and let her run. 14 hours later when I got home from a concert I took the meat off. Great stuff. Surprised by the remains in the Egg. Still pieces of the 15 left. The three pictures to follow show the brand I used, the remains of the day, and the jerky.
If you  find the stuff give it a try. Or don't.
