Question for all owners of both Large and Small Eggs.
What are your thoughts on lump consumption, comparatively?
I have always used my Small primarily for grilling hot/fast as well as an occassional vertical chicken. Recently in effort to cut back on lump usage, I have done a couple of small butts on the Small. Each time it has taken every ounce of lump in the firebox, filled to the ring. It goes about 10-11 hrs at 250deg. It seems to me the Large may actually use LESS. Usually I light the Large in one place and get a 5-6" diameter burn to the bottom, with the remaining lump unburned. Seems like a fairly small amount.
Could the Large with more ceramic mass be a more efficient unit?....
