Low&Slow to Hot&Fast-lump transition management?

Okay-Given I don't have clearance from SWMBO ( no need for comments here:)) for dueling BGE's how do those who prefer one brand of lump for the L&S make the transition to H&F-lump-wise with the same cook?  I load about 80-90% L&S lump and then when quickly (key word) removing the platesetter, check the lump load and recharge with the H&F brand.  Works for me but thought I would see how others of the solo BGE clan manage the transition.

    Not sure I understand the question. You use two different brands of lump; one for low and slow, the other for hot and fast? I only use one brand (RO) and it is great for L&S and H&F.

    Ok, sorry to sound stupid, but what would be the reason for using Different brands of lump for low and slow vs hot and fast? I have never changed before. I use RO! Sometimes BGE or cowboy. Saw some Wicked today and picked that up.

    Same here. One brand for all cooks. Recently switched from WGWW to Wegmans brand (Royal Oak). At $6 for a ten pound bag price is right. Starting to hoard (6 bags today) in anticipation of it not being available soon. Still June but the store is already starting to highlight canning and fall stuff. I figure by July 4 the summer stuff, including lump will be gone, closely followed by Christmas stuff.

    @tjcoley. I only use Wegmans brand. I am able to get it year round at my store in Maryland.

    Don't remember seeing lump at Wegmans after summer but not really looking last year. Hopefully they will continue to stock it, but just in case I'm loading up.

    It's in the sundries section with the plates and napkins during "non-grilling" season. They will enjoy even order it for you in bulk(mine offered)

    Don't understand two types of lump...if that's what I'm reading.  I just use wicked good WW..and the heat increase time is reduced with a coal grate such as the SS one from Cer. works...just sayin.
