  • Re: How good is Royal Oak Lump charcoal and Is the DigiQ DX2 temperature control system worth the money

    like others have said, best thing to do with lump is try a few and use the one that you enjoy the best.....there are differences you will notice as you cook and as you eat.

    as for the digi-q, I have one and it works as advertised and it does the job.  however, I have become more of a hot and fast kind of cook and it pretty reduces the need for a controller, because I am usually around the egg while I am cooking.  


    I would only get one of these controllers if you plan to cook overnight on a regular basis at a low temp, or as someone else pointed out, if you are going to be involved in cooks where there are lots of things you are responsible for taking your attention away from the egg for long periods of time.

    the lump was Rockwood......the first time I had ever used it.

    i will double check the thermometer, however, i have never had any issues with timing/recipes on other cooks....in fact, it usually has taken me longer than expected....lol

    the cut of meat was a USDA "Choice" which was the best I could acquire at the time of purchase.
