I've used over 100 bags of RO over the last year. Most of my cooks are low and slow with a Stoker. I never had to fill my large BGE to go 20-22 hours but I have been running out of lump lately. I figure it must be more leaks on my gasket so I replaced it. I figured I didn't have 100% fresh lump so I always clean out my BGE before using. Last night I cleaned everything out, filled my egg (a little over 1 - 8.8 lb bag of lump) to the top of the upper fire ring. It was so full that my oval ceramic plate was resting on the lump. I started at 8:30 PM, added a 21 lb clod at 9:00 and now at 10:00 AM my temps are dropping. I pulled everything out of my egg and the firebox is about empty. I dumped in another full bag of lump to get me thru the day.
I have a Stoker keeping my egg at 250° ±2°. Anyone finding the RO isn't lasting as long as it used to? The sad thing is I live in Minnesota and there are not a lot of choices of lump to buy.
