  • Re: Lump Consumption

    You should be done. 

    Ever heard of chicken breasts, chicken fajitas, chicken wings?  Seriously, man.  What is with you?  I do at least 3-5 lbs. of chicken fajitas a week.  Takes me about 25-30 minutes start to finish.  And that is grilling them indirect too at around 350*-400*.  How is that not a hot and fast cook?  Do you smoke yours for 10 hours? 

    I just don't get how you can call BS on people like you have in this thread.  People cook different things with different methods for different lengths of time.  That's the great thing about the Egg, the versatility.  Not everyone's results are going to be the same, and they shouldn't be as everyone does things differently.  I clearly stated mine in response to the OP's question based on over three years of experience and you called ****.  You were wrong.   

  • Re: Lump Consumption

    @Lit is it math skills or reading comprehension that you're lacking?  As stated earlier in the thread, what @HeavyG describes very closely resembles roughly 80% or so of my cooks at least, probably more.  Even said it in my very first response, which you would know if you actually took the time to read what people type instead of being in such a rush to call BS on something you know nothing about. 

    His results just proved you wrong, at least as it relates to my experiences.  Hell, you already said there's no way you could burn less than a pound in a cook like this.....wrong.  Do some people burn more?  Sure.  But I stated my experience, which obviously I have far more knowledge of than you.

    Good grief.....

  • Re: Shop vac for the Egg

    I have always used a shop vac (plastic version) with no problems at all.  Of course I only clean it out every 4-6 cooks or so and always at the beginning of a cook after the Egg has been shut down for at least a couple days, but usually longer....NEVER at the end of one.  Not sure who would do that.
  • Re: Building fire, lighting the coals, how long until you reach the desired temp?

    15-20 minutes max from the time I light with the torch.  That's using a good lump too.  The Good One is my current and lights fast and burns clean.
