Kingsford Competition

Any one ever use this stuff? (Either in an Egg or metal grill) Went camping this weekend and picked up a bag rather than regular Kingsford 'cause it was a smaller bag. Figured I would never use it again. Was cooking w/ a Dutch oven and needed briquettes. Stuff lit in a chimney quickly using 1 sheet of newspaper. Made an awful lot of smoke (about as much as our campfire). Ready to use in about 10-15 minutes. Put about 15-20 coals on the ground and put the 12" Lodge camp Dutch oven over them. Had cooked chili earlier so all we had to do was re-heat in the CIDO. Stuff was boiling in about 15 minutes after coming right out of the cooler. Ash built up quickly and the coals burned up pretty quick, too. However, just lying on the ground ringed w/ stones, they were still pretty warm after 3-4 hours.

Cooked breakfast the next morning over another batch of coals. Forgot to bring extra newspaper so I used a small chunk of firestarter. Again, lit quickly and smoked a lot. Kept several chunks in the chimney to relight more as the cook progressed. Same results, lots of ash buildup quickly (have to knock the ash off periodically to keep 'em hot. About 18 coals on the lid and 12 below. Breakfast done start to finish in about an hour. Here is breakfast (halved the recipe):

Mountainman Breakfast

2 pounds Sausage
2 pounds Frozen Hash Brown Potatoes
8 Eggs, Beaten w/ 1/4 cup water
2 cups Cheese, grated

In a 12 inch Lodge Camp Dutch Oven over a full bed of hot coals, fry and crumble sausage. Remove cooked sausage and drain on paper towels. Using the sausage drippings in the pan, brown potatoes, and spread them evenly in the bottom of the camp oven. Place cooked sausage over potatoes. Pour eggs over sausage layer. Sprinkle top with cheese. Cook with 8 coals underneath and 16 on top for 20-25 minutes, until eggs are cooked.
