So I was at academy the other day and I picked up a 17 poun bag of b&b oak charcoal for 10$. Well much to my surprise when I got home it was natural briquettes and not lump. Oh well. I will just grill a few times and use it up before some low and slows.

    Meh. I will use it I guess. What's the harm?

    Really isn't any harm I guess but you are going to have to take all of the guts of the Egg out to clean all the excess ash that it produces.

    Nothing horrible about using briquettes for BBQ.  I used them in my WSM for years and made some great food.  I prefer lump but will use briquettes in a pinch.  Sure makes a lot of smoke and ash though...

    Hmm. I don't really have any non-egg friends. What a quandary.
