Big Green Egg - EGGhead Forum - The Ultimate Cooking Experience...
We hope everyone enjoyed their Fourth of July weekend and is excited for more warm weather grilling! This week, we’ll be making these two burgers: Stuffed Portobello Mushroom and Caribbean Chicken, and also eating lots of these Ice Cream Sandwiches in honor of National Ice Cream Month! It's time to think about getting out to one of the many #EGGfests around the country - see a list here

used lump vs. new

I did ribs yesterday and it took 30 minutes for it to get to 275 and then another 30 for clear smoke. I cooked a couple burgers for lunch today, shut it down and did chicken for dinner. all on the same lump. the temp got up to 350-400 degrees and even approaching 500 very quickly. as in 10 minutes or less.

is this consistant with used lump vs new?

wondering if I should always add new lump and stir it up to get the temp up to cooking temp faster and less white smoke (shorter time put on the meat)

an interesting observation.
