    I am still trying to figure out how many licks it takes to finish a Tootsie Pop....

    The world may never know :lol: :laugh: ;)

    Doesn't that problem have too many unknown variables?

    How long will you cook on each of those three weekly cooks?

    At what temps will you be cooking?

    How long is your allotted warm up time per cook?

    How efficient are your gasket/DFMT at extinguishing the lump post-cook?

    What brand of lump?

    How much beer will you drink while cooking?


    All that said, a long time. The mini doesn't use much.

    Great answer, especially the beer part. :)

  • Looks like you are ready for Christmas. Green Egg, green cart, red geranium, green ice cream maker. :laugh:

    The lump at the bottom of the bag will petrify before you can get to it. :laugh:

    BTW - Nice setup

    My question is why does it matter?

    When it starts to run out next month get a new bag!!

    OK, can you tell us how long a good 1.75 liter bottle of rum lasts compared to a cheap bottle? LOL
    Nice to see you heading off some of these questions before some Egg head posts a lump flow chart for a mini.
    Thank you,

    Good Rum last one day.. Cheap rum last several cooks.
  • Very Nice: You got to love it.

    Well Are you going to stop cooking just cause you ran out of lump? I think not.. :woohoo:

    Well TNW might, but people keep sending him lump...

    No idea, with all of the variables, I just know that bag last 4-5 times as long on my small than it does on my XL.
  • Let me make sure I understand the question: how many beers does it take to get to the center of a Tootsie Pop? :silly:
