Okay Gurus!

 

I am happy to announce the delivery of 1,260 lbs. of FOGO to ChezChef.  That's 36 bags.

 

Here is my friend Tom, the delivery driver with the FOGO.  He delivered both Beauty! and TheBeast.  Tom is one of the nicest guys I've met in a long time.  And he LOVES BBQ!

Just a nice money shot of nothing but the FOGO.

Here is a shot for some perspective.  Tom is an even 6' tall.

And here is BBQ central at ChezChef.

This is anywhere as exciting as the delivery of the bosco units KKs, but its a delivery nonetheless and I won't have to ever worry about running out of lump for some time to come!  ;)

NICE stash CC!!! Give us your best guess... how long do you estimate 36 will last ya?

I'm thinking that I generally run through a 35# bag of FOGO every 7-10 days; about 3-4 per month. At that rate, I'll burn through that pallet in 12 months or so. I've a cushion of 5 bags that I had on hand before the pallet arrived. I'm good to go for most of 2016!

DANG!! No wonder we call you Ceramic Chef (still think you should change it to Refractory Cement Chef -- RCC??).  With the KK's being as efficient as they are, you must keep a small fire burning 24/7... just to be ready at all times??

 

I cook outdoors quite often, and would have a heck of a time going through 2 35# of FOGO/month.  FOGO seems to last quite a bit longer then Royal Oak.

Rob - I do a lot of sears, braises at 350°-400°, a fair number of pizza cooks at 550°+, and those kinds of cooks tend to eat up lump, especially when you heat soak for an hour or so before I cook. I also work out of my home and I'll do breakfast or lunch on Beauty! about 4-5 days a week.
