can charcoal brickettes be used in the egg? the lump type works great,but not availble close-by
harry r,[p]They can be used but, the results will be no where as good.
harry r, maybe these phone numbers will lead you to your nearest distributer.
You can order lump from any True-Value or Servistar dealer. Ask them to look it up in their order book. Lump charcoal is available from True Value Hardware stores item #145607 or ServiceStar Hardware #66990 and should be under $9/25 lb bag.[p]Tim
harry r,[p]Brickettes can be used, but you need to understand the difference between the two types. Lump is basically pure carbon. It lights easily and burns very hot, leaving little ash. Brickettes are made from the powder that results from producing lump charcoal. This powder is combined with a binder and fillers to form the common brickette shape. Additives are then applied to the surface of the brickette to aid in lighting and provide a color change to indicate when these additives (nasty tasting) are burned off.[p]To use brickettes to your best advantage, you need to "white over" the brickettes first to avoid the foul taste added to the meal. This involves burning off the surface additives to produce the white coloring (lime - another additive). They can be used, but will certainly be a hassle and disappointment after using lump.[p]I would suggest that you make friends with your supplier and negotiate an deal on a quantity purchase. Everyone benefits.[p]Spin
