Making the Most of a Burn

We're trying to make the most of each burn and I'm sure most of you do as well. Today we grilled burgers, stir fried Sweet & Sour Pork and now we've got whole onions roasting at a very low temp for a couple of hours. These are sooooo good to have on hand for pasta sauces, pizza toppings or soup. If I had any energy left I'd make a fruit crisp to pop in it as well.

Do you try to do the same? Would love to hear any of your favorite ways to make a burn count.

Thanks :)

    Fortunately the egg is an efficient lump burning machine, so not a lot is wasted.

    But I do keep some cookie dough handy to toss on a few cookies when Im done and the egg is still hot with vents closed, especially in the summer.

    direct cooks burn alot less than inderect cooks, raised grates are a good investment. with the direct cooks you dont need as high a temp either. check out this direct butt cook and notice how little lump was used

    That looks great, I'll definitely try a direct butt~

    I guess what I'm talking about though is not only making the most of the lump, but of having a hot egg. Today I was able to make enough great food for a few days ahead, won't need to cook anything again till Sunday at best. So I'm talking about conserving time and energy as well as the lump :)
