  • I still can't get over that 48 hr. RO Burn you did (Whiz). I guess I'm going to have to darken the door of WM to find a bag just for kicks.

    I figure I started out with 15 pounds, and maybe burned 60% of it?

    @ Cen-Tex-you can find generic RO at places other than WW if that's preferred.  If I'm not using the boutique stuff to try out, I get the generic Kroger (mid-west groc chain) brand and it does just fine-although I doubt I could get 48 hrs out of a load (LBGE).

    I'm guessing that you did not have the indirect set-up going for this run...the heat deflector does cause higher lump consumption, at least in my unscientific world.  Regardless-that's quite the duration and with a good amount left.  Did you use a High-Que grate or the OEM one as air flow could be an issue over time.  That said, If you only burned around 9-10#'s it may not have presented as a factor.  BTW-I send every newbie I find to your site-best primer and more out there.  Thanks for the efforts.

    I doubt that grates and plate setters would have made any difference.  I was using a PartyQ to control airflow and it should all be a matter of how much heat is required to keep the Egg at any particular temperature for that length of time.

    You are right-air-flow leading to fuel consumption are the pieces of the puzzle once you are stable-should have thought about that earlier.
