Why did the charcoal burn up so quickly?
I poured Royal Oak lump into my LBGE up to the line and cooked two 4 lb pork butts at 250 degrees. I took the butts off after the charcoal had been burning for 8 hours and thought I would increase the temp to 400 and grill some side dishes. When the temp wouldn't go up I moved the sides to the oven and checked the coals. They were almost gone! I thought the Egg could burn for 20 hours on one load of charcoal. What did I do wrong?
The good thing was that the pork was wonderful. The company that we had for dinner was amazed.
Thanks for all of your help.
