lump question

Just starting using Ozark Oak. Man, it sure burns hot. Anyone do a low and slow with it? Cooked some quarters and the temp got away from me. Vents barely open.

  • I use wicked good and I barely vent to keep it at 260. Not sure but Royal Oak may be a little easier to manage for low temps.
  • Have only used royal oak with good results. Last couple of bags have had some huge pieces in them. I use the big pieces in the bottom of the fire box for low and slow cooks.

    I have used ozark oak for a couple of 220 F cooks both over 20 hours with plenty left over in my XL.  I always fill to the top of the fire ring to be sure though.
