Oh no! My lump is wet!

edited 8:24PM in EggHead Forum
It rained last night and like a fool I left my bag of lump outside after a big Q party. Now it is... damp. Is the lump salvagable? Or should I just get a new bag? I hate to throw away over half a bag. I look to you wise Eggers for advice.[p]BTW, The chickens and fajitas I cooked were awesome. Tried one chicken with Char-Crust and the other with JJ's rub. Char Crusted bird was good, but everybody LOVED the JJ's rub chicken. The fajita marinated skirt steak disappeared within minutes. After dinner I had 7 very stuffed friends who wanted to start a collection to help me pay for the new Egg! I laughed and said as long as they keep bringing good wine and beer on the weekends I will keep cooking good food for them. Of course when they bring too MUCH beer I end up forgetting things outside to get rained on. Oh well.[p]Hope everyone who went to Eggfest had a great time

    Skooter,[p] I would keep it & add part of it to the new lump each time you lite up. It should dry out will be okay to use.[p]Earl

    Earl, your on the money, and glad the party went well for ya, irregardless of the non Candadian foam carton. :-)
    I had a bucket of charcoal left out in the rain and it was swimming. Did like you say, added it to the next hot fire of fresh dry charcoal, and you just add more moisture as it steam dries out. Good for the cook. Like having a drip pan full of water. Might even do it deliberatly sometime..:-)
