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

Am I using too much charcoal or is cowboy lump is terrible?

I just bought my large egg about 2 weeks ago.  First cook was a spatchcock chicken, and an attempt at Smore's pizza. Second cook was a beer can chicken (without the beer can) and some bananna's with honey and cinnamon.  Third cook was beer bread.  Fourth was cornbread and small london boils.  Last cook was pork tenderloins.  Sorry for the details but the bottom line is, I went through three (3) 8lb bags of cowboy lump.  Granted, the first didn't go as planned becaused I tried to cool the egg off and opened the lid to soo which caused the charcoal to continue burning.  Anyway, does this sound normal?  I just bought Royal Oak from Kmart but haven't tried yet.  The bag is tan with green on the bottom.  Says it's made in the USA.  $6.00 for an 8lb bag.
