Just got a small BGE to go with my large BGE and take camping. Just how long can you cook at 225°-250°on a full load of lump. Say like for pull pork.

    i did 6 hours easily for ribs with plenty of left over lump. i'd think you could go 18 hours or so.

    You can go 5.5 -6 before temp drop ,yes you will have lump left but you have to stir it ( never got on to that yet )

    Using the Elder Ward method to build the fire I've gone 14+ hours at 225º-250º without having to add lump.
  • Thanks to all. I was hoping around 16 to 18 hours. I will find out
