Got a bag of Royal Oak at Ace. Nothing but shake and I have 15 lbs of pork to cook. Assuming the problem was the way Ace handled the bag. But it is pretty much unuseable. Hope I can maintain a good temp.
All I use is RO.. Shake still burns - just takes a little longer to get to temp. I'm used to shake, as I think the bags I buy get thrown around lots. I try to find a few larger pieces (3" square) to put on the bottom and then dump the rest.... It works, just takes a little longer to get to temp.
The other day I opened a bag of RO and it had hole bunch of large pieces, so dumped it in (not used to it) and lit... Wow - got really hot fast, (not used to it) overshot temp and had hard time lowering temp.
I guess it's what you're used to.... But it all burns
