I use KJ charcoal for smoking and Royal Oak or Cowboy for grilling.

 

 

 

What is the motivation to use a different charcoal for smoking? Longer lasting on long cooks?

Some lumps burn hotter for grilling. Other lumps are harder and last longer for a low-n-slow. 

 

Best lump for the job.

A Royal Oak fire lights and gets hot much faster. Which is what I want for grilling.   The big dense KJ chunks take a long time to get going, but produce more stable temperatures on long cooks
