Dave, are you working the Laguna Marketplace road show in 2 weeks? That's my local Costco... 

 

I had to buy a 20# bag of Primo (for $31.50 :shock: ) a few weeks back because I ran out of my KJ lump, so I need to stock up... I might need to rent a truck for it ;-)

 

 Does your KJ lump put out a lot of ash while cooking? I tried some for the first time a few weeks back and it left ash all over my food and I'm not sure why.

I haven't tried the new "restaurant grade" KJ, but I've *always* really liked KJ lump. I've never had any complaints with it. 

 

The Primo was pretty decent. I don't like RO. I also used Fogo and thought it to be excellent.

 

But quality and value (with the roadshow pricing) simply CAN'T be beat with the KJ. 40# for $30 is a steal.

I am going through my first bag now. No ash on my food. In fact, I find KJ lump to be one of my lower ash producing lumps.

I am thinking ash on your food has more to do with air moving through your kamado then with what type of lump your using. Just a thought.

Hi Jesse. I have not had that problem with KJ lump so I have to say no to your question. Possible ideas to check into are as "keeperovdeflame" points out, maybe air somehow got forced into the bottom damper from wind, etc. Other possibility could be a buildup of ash in the tray or ash containment area of your grill before you started. I say it's a safe bet to give it another go.

The KJ charcoal from the Costco Roadshows is excellent and burns just as expected. Dave is a great rep and answered a ton of questions I had prior to my purchase.

Also, glad we picked up the Jr. That day too.

Hey Rob. Glad to hear you're enjoying your KJ's. Awesome pics of the Joe Jr. making it up to Yosemite. My Jr. just missed my trip but it'll be along on the next one. Great meeting you both and we're happy we could help you with your purchase. Thanks again!

Thanks for the reply's guys, I'm not sure what's going on cause it didn't do it with anything else I've used. I bought 2 bags of it and was really excited to try it so I cleaned everything out so that I only burned KJ lump on my cook, didn't want other coal in there. It did it the second time I cooked with it as well but like I said I have 2 bags of it and I'm not going to toss it so I'll give it another try on something else. Norwalk isn't to far from me so I might go and check them out anyways.

      Saw this in Kroger a while back. Then I saw it on Shark Tank. Anybody tried it?
      Sustainable Hardwood Charcoal Briquettes – Prime 6 (prime-six.com)
    • By Bomb Dog Barbecue
      I have a question for the community about fire construction and how much charcoal I should be using when I set up a cook. I have a KJ Classic III and have been using the SloRoller for all of my low and slow cooks.
       
      On some of my larger cooks (one pork butt, a full brisket, and then two boneless pork shoulders) I have burned through all of my fuel before the cook was done. I filled the standard KJ ash basket with charcoal and then light it up with one KJ firestarter. I was smoking everything at around 250F and followed the heating method described by SmokingDad BBQ on his YouTube channel (it worked well!).
       
      Does anyone have an image of what their charcoal looks like when setting up for a 10lb brisket or pork butt?

      This isn't a complete product review...yet.  I haven't burned any of these but I will soon and will add to this thread.  Hopefully other users will also add their thoughts.
       
      I'm sometimes annoyed at lump charcoal because of either the–
      small shards that pack too tight or fall unburned into my Masterbuilt 1050's ash bin huge chunks that sometimes reduce the heat produced Briquettes don't usually work out for me because they–
      make more ash than I want usually can't be relit after snuffing
      Jealous Devil introduced a line of extra large briquettes.  Their web site describes them as, "The same incredibly dense hardwood we use to make our lump charcoal – plus a pinch of plant-derived starch (that is it – Yes, really)."  They go in to say that the briquettes have, "Extremely low ash production."
       

      They're certainly larger than Kingsford Originals, and much thicker.  I didn't weigh them.
       
      My first use will be in my Masterbuilt 1050.  I'll report back on that.
