I notice the different taste from the lump vs briquets,its not a bad taste but it is different when you"ve been use to briquets for so many years. A taste that i will learn to acquire. ;)


  • It takes a while for the kerosene, coal oil and borax to leave the palate. It's kind of like quitting smoking. Soon, all sorts of flavours will come in, you'll wonder what the h*ll you were eating before.

    Oh, and you might want to let your lump burn a bit before putting the food on. Less acrid smoke that way. :sick:

    you will reach a point that when you go some where and just smell briquettes you will go YUCK!
  • that"s hard to believe, but real funny..
  • thanks 4 the info...
  • Stop eating your charcoal! You are supposed to only cook with it. :evil:
  • Oh,now that"s a good one. I love you too. B) B)
  • Briquets???? what's Briquets?

    no, it's true! I gag at the smell that drifts over from my neighbor's Weber! That horrible petroleum smell is the pits. Like a couple good o boys sitting around a fired up petro saying "don'tcha just love the smell of BBQ and steaks" as they smother the steaks in A1 sauce - another gagger to me!

    actually the two are equally offensive...the burning putrid petro fumes to the nose and the A1 to the poor cow so some mouth breather could smother the taste - let them cover dog crap with A1 as they can't tell the difference anyway! :laugh:

    My wife gets made cause I cook good steaks for me and she gets the $5 a pound stuff. You can't tell the differance with that crap poured all over it.
  • Not to tell you something you don't already know-
    Make sure you let the lump burn clean before cooking. 20 min. or so.

    I know what you're talking about.
  • yeah thanks for the advice..
