Anybody use Stubb's or K Competition briquettes?
I'll be honest. I've never really liked using lump. No matter how many different brands I try, I ALWAYS find lump to be sparky and there is almost always extra crap (trash, rocks, etc) in the bag no matter how expensive the lump is. I hate all the tiny pieces that fall through or clog the grate. I fight through it though because I always considered it comes with the territory.
Well tonight something happened that scared the crap out of me. I was using a well known and recommended brand and mid cook I opened the lid and a large spark popped right at my eye. It missed my eye by about an inch but got caught in my hair. I got it out of my hair and I'm fine but I burned some of my hair and could have gotten that in my eye. Has anybody had any luck with all natural briquettes? I know there will be more ash but I don't care. I clean my egg every cook anyways. Has anybody found a decent briquette that like?
