Only concern is the amount of sparking when lighting.
This is my go to charcoal for my kamado joe - burns super clean and gets to the temps I need for that steakhouse sear. Wouldn't use anything else!
Love this charcoal for super hot searing or low and slow for long cooks. It's my go to!
Yes - the initial price was very hard to stomach, but I have yet to find anything that rivals the quality and the consistency of this charcoal. Every other "jumbo" or mega lump that I've gotten has some big pieces on top, then shale and little nuggets for the rest of the bag. The burn is clean and consistent, and so far I've only spotted a couple small pieces that were not fully combusted upon opening the bag. Would be hard to switch to any other charcoal knowing the quality I may get, versus this where I know what's coming.
This charcoal is a perfect choice for a low and slow cooks, I like using it on my large BGE for anything: brisket, pork butts, smoking poultry etc!
