I've got new info! Blackwood Canyon makes a 100% natural briquette called Big Briq, sold at Meijers and Andersons. I'm using it the the modified Brinkmann Gourmet and smoking a 10# butt aand 10#'s of smoked bologna and the temps are steady, the ash clean and minimal. Big thumbs up.Works just like lump but has all the advantages of briquettes with none of the drawbacks. Check it out, guys.
