I've been using either BGE or royal oak lump charcoal. Last night I tried cowboy lump charcoal for the first time. When I pored it into my bge I noticed that it had a different look than what I'm used to. Most of the charcoal looked like big chunks of black tree branches. I was a little concerned but decided to light it anyway. It lit up very fast and it wasn't it very fragrant. But the weird part was that there was never any white smoke. I used a couple fire staters and opened both vents wide open. I waited and waited for the white smoke. Nothing!! So I stabilized the temp and cooked on it. The food tasted great as usual. It was just odd that there was no white smoke. Not even grey smoke. Has this happened to anyone else? Did I get a bad batch of cowboy lump charcoal?
