  • Re: Lump Trivia ... The Beginning

    The humidity of the basement Is not a constant.  The only way to ensure the same measurement is to soak the charcoal first.  This way, it starts out as 100% humidity.  You will also get the volume by measuring the water displaced as you take out the wet charcoal.

    once dried, you can load it in the egg and continue with your test.  With the burnt charcoal, I recommend soaking and washing off the ashes and weighing the unused lumps at 100% humidity.

    I personally keep a couple different kinds of lump on hand and load differently depending on what I'm cooking.  Maybe it's just me but if I'm doing high temp for pizza or something then I don't think it matters much which lump I'm using.  Same thing when I'm smoking with chunks of wood mixed in - the wood chunks are going to overpower whatever flavor the charcoal puts out. 

    I tend to use the good lump when I'm grilling - cooking directly over the coals somewhere between 350 and 500 degrees.  Maybe it's all in my head, I dunno.  But that's what I do and I'm happy with it.

    FWIW, there are currently only a few places you can get Rockwood around DFW.  I think Rockwood sells for $21 at the Ceramic Grill Store and $24 at the Ace Hardware that's closest to me. 
    It's funny, I do the total opposite of what you do.  For low & slow, I use my premium lumps since it's such a low temp and the food will be expose to the smoke longer.  For normal grilling, I'll use whatever that's open since any bad smoke is gone and the food will only be expose to the smoke for a shorter period of time.

    I take a picture of the lean side before seasoning and use that as a "roadmap" before cutting.

    I bet if you tie 3 dogs to that thing it won't budge at all...
