I had two fires go out on me last week.
1st I want to say thanks for all the time people spend on this forum. I've been creeping around for a year now and have learned a ton.
I had two fires go out this past week, one on 1st spatchcocked chicken and one on a brisket. I had been using Vaquero charcoal from ACE and WFoods starters. The brisket was 1/2 my fault as i probably didnt clean the egg out well enough or load enough lump to begin with. At least all cooks were saved and the brisket was the best one yet. I went out today and overpaid for OO and picked up a Looflighter. I know the starters didn't have anything to do with it but I had $$ burning a hole in my pocket. Unfortunately the Looflighter didn't meet my wild expectations but it does work, not sure I'd recommend it. Should have gone with a butane torch.
The OO really blew me away. I had no idea lump could differ so much. I fired it up tonight just to cook asparagus to go along with leftover Brisket. Also cooked up some green chili Mac n' Chee.
