Long burn time - 33 hours on one load in LBGE

Yesterdays brisket started at 7:00 AM.  When it came off last night, I decided to just burn off the remaining lump/wood chips, since I'll be doing pizza tonight and didn't want that much smoke.  Took the DW off and opened up the bottom vent.  Checked it after about 45 minutes and it was at 750 degrees.  I left it alone and forgot about it.  This afternoon at 3:00 PM I went out to clean and fill to get ready for tonights pizza.  Noticed the dome temp was 225 and figured I'd screwed up the thermo, until I went to open the Egg and it was still warm.  Opened it up and had a lot of ash and a couple of handfuls of burning embers.  I figure I had just the right mix of charcoal and ash to bank the fire and keep it going.  That's 33 hours total burn time - 11 at 300, a high temp clean out burn, and overnight at 225.  If I'd been paying attention, I could have thrown on a butt overnight for tonights dinner.  The coals I had left could have burned for a few more hours.

    It snowed 4 inches starting just before the cook started, ending about 4 PM, Overnight temp was in the upper 20's.

  • i saw @nakedwhiz did some crazy test with RO and a stoker where it burned 24+ hours and there was still a totally full box of lump left! It looked like it could have gone a week or more at that pace! He posted it on here somewhere
