Can anyone tell me if you have used briquets (untreated with starter) in an emergency?  I don't have enough lump coal for a cook I need to start tonight but I have a good amount of briquets that I could use to supplement.  Any advice?


  • Use 'em then buy a few bags of lump tomorrow.  I have not used anything but lump in my Egg, but I'm a veteran Weber Kettle guy.  The briquettes will produce a lot of ash and air flow might become an issue, but I don't think they will hurt anything.

  • Just use it like on a Weber.  I assume you're not going "low and slow" for 12 hours.  Next day root through it and clean out the ash, lots of ash.   Don't ask me how I know.  I never said this.
