    I have had similar issues as the OP with RW from Firecraft.  Both times I ordered 5 bags, the bags looked like that.  For the first order the lump still was decent sized but smaller than when I purchased part of a pallet through a group buy.  I chalked that up too shipping.  

    For my second Firecraft order, I am through just one bag and it had tons of dust and small enough pieces that a lot fell through the XL grate.  I have really liked using RW but that bag was bad enough that I am thinking I may not order from Firecraft again especially if the other bags are similar. 

    I will open up the second bag sometime next week.  I will try to remember to document what it looks like.

    @canegger That is definitely normally true! Seeing that I am 7 months pregnant and shouldnt really lift the egg with all of the sciatic pain I am having, and I would have to take my 2 and 4 year old with me, unfortunately in this case, I would need to ask for permission because I need his help!
    I can come down from Frederick to help. I don't know how much my 4-months pregnant wife would like that though.

    Ha ha. Probably not a good idea. You never want to make a pregnant woman mad. :)) I have been wanting a swing rack. Maybe I should just get the large egg instead. It is not that much more money especially if the guy is willing to negotiate. ;)
  • Re: Brisket Nachos!! (lots of pix)

    Looks amazing. I have a brisket planned for the weekend and these nachos will definitely be on the menu for the leftovers.
  • Re: Are these really baby back ribs?

    The ribs turned out great. They had a good balance of smoke, rub, and meat taste and were very tender and moist. They took about 2 hrs and 45 minutes until they passed the bend test. 

    My husband kept saying how good they were while eating them. I will definitely be repeating this cook again soon.  Photobucket Pictures, Images and Photos
  • A couple of recent cooks

    I do a lot of reading and just wanted to share some of my recent cooks. For Christmas I got a high-que grate for my large and cooked pizzas tonight for the first time since then. It is amazing how much easier it was for me to maintain higher temps. Here are pictures of the pizza I made for the kids and a sausage, green onion, and garlic one I cooked for my husband and me. Photobucket Pictures, Images and Photos Photobucket Pictures, Images and Photos Yesterday I smoked a turkey breast for the first time. I put together a rub of salt, pepper, paprika, onion powder, granulated garlic, and chipotle pepper powder. I smoked the breast indirect with apple wood at a dome temperature of around 300 degrees. It was about a 6 lb turkey breast and it took right around 2 hrs until internal temperature was 165. I was going to pull it a little earlier but my Maverick temperature probe stopped climbing when it was around 153 degrees. Finally I went to check the temperature somewhere else and other places read 165 and so I pulled it off the egg. The turkey was fabulous.

I cooked it direct at a dome temperature of 300-350 and rubbed it with a mixture of salt, seasoned salt, granulated garlic, and paprika. I also threw in some hickory with the lump. My husband thinks it was the best thing I have cooked yet. It was great the first day and made awesome sandwiches the following day. I also posted a picture of my plate just for comparison of what our meals are typically like with a toddler and preschooler (almost 2 and 4 years old) in the house. It is not as near as fancy as many of the plates I see here. I had planned on doing some nicer sides this meal but ended up chasing kids on their bike and scooter instead of cooking sides.

The recent wok threads have been some good inspiration.
