General Charcoal Question

Can anyone point me in the right direction as to what the coals should look like before you grill?  When using a kingsford type charcoal, they want you to wait till the coals are all grey/white.  Is this necessary when using lump?  I have been told it is not.  Please advise.  Thanks!

    Lump is not the same as Kingsford. I use when fire is hot enough for what I'm cooking and there is no more acrid (white) smoke from the charcoal.
