Lump Reducer for XL

edited 2:34AM in EggHead Forum
I have been using the Lump Reducer for my XL for all cooks. When do I NOT use the Lump Reducer ? It seems the temp goes up to 550 and that is it. Next week I plan on doing more than 2 rib eyes. Do I not use the Lump Reducer ?

    I have a BGE-XL.
    I bought a lump reducer that works great.
    A BGE-small for my smaller cooks.
    A lump reducer is like using a furnace to heat your house that is 50% smaller.
    You're going to have a cold house.
    Remember the internal volume of the BGEXL has not changed just like the sq. footage of your house has not changed.

    Don't use the reducer if you are doing a low and slow such as a butt or a brisket you will need a lot of lump to last the entire cook. 550 dome is probable hot enough to sear a lot of steaks.
