Having a good supply of lump is good . . .

except when it comes to moving, then it's a PITA  :o
BTW: not a good idea to store on a dirt floor, hence the partial bag in the plastic bag

  • Having performed a large scale move last year with two young children, I feel your pain. To alleviate the burden, why not offer your lump to your neighbours and free up space in your moving truck? A parting gift that also renders your task a little easier. 
  • If you left that royal oak behind you wouldn’t have lost too much, IMO. I feel your pain, moving sucks!

    Hmmm, I don’t understand how those few bags are troublesome! Here’s an idea...why not ask all your friends over for big egging bash and use it up?

    You should store it in the attic and leave it for the new homeowners...

    Going through the same process, and have been burning through my supply.  The nice weather we have now helps. 

    I spent hours over two weekends burning my scrap wood pile.  I learned the hard way you should not burn the white crown molding from Lowes that is pre-printed. Was like burning a tire.

    Looks like a starter set to me. I've got that in RO, then add in some Canadian Maple Leaf, some Wicked Good, a couple of bags of BGE, other odds and ends. Probably 350 - 400 lbs total in lump. Mixture of Craigslist and local store sales. Get it while it's on sale, broken bag, closeouts etc.
    Then about a dozen bags of briquets for the WSMs and the kettles.

    @womaus
    17.2# x 14 = 240# (RO)
    22# x 5 =      110# (wicked good)
    Total = 350#

    IMHO . . . tad more than a starter set  :)
