Premium Lump for Junior?

Recommended Posts

Hello? Is there anybody out there?

 

I've had a couple not so great low and slows this season using Made in USA Royal Oak lump. 

 

I was thinking on trying FOGO but not sure if the Super Premium lump will be too big for the Junior? The Primo Junior really isn't a small cooker like the BGE Minimax or smaller Kamado Joe's because of the oval design, yet it isn't a super deep firebox. Has anybody have experience with the Fogo lump on a Primo Junior?

 

Are there any other suggestions for premium lump for a Primo Junior?

 

Thanks.

Welcome arclite. 

 

Check out this lump comparison thread I think all your lump/Oval Jr questions will be answered. Everything in this thread was done in a Primo Oval Jr. The first 4 posts are the comparisons. The 4th post is low-n-slow.

Hey CK!

 

Just a little tease about the inactivity in the Primo section.

 

I've been around for awhile, but mostly lurk.

 

Thanks for the link. I look forward to digging into your thread. Doing all this on a Junior is perfect for me. Thanks!

Yup you're the perfect candidate to send that link to B) Your question was made for that thread. 

 

 

I own both the Primo Oval Jr and 2 different Komodo Kamados. I rarely post in the appropriate sections but I do post a bunch in General Kamado Cooking.

It was a fun read and I'm looking forward to the Fogo results.

 

My main concern right now is taste. I've never had problems with RO as an all around lump, but the last couple bags I bought have given me a slightly off-putting acrid smoke taste. Not enough for friends and family to notice, but I did and was pretty upset.

      I have a question about lump charcoal and brands. Where I live, the options to buy from a store are limited. I have only used Royal Oak, and the only other one available near me is Cowboy. I have been happy with the Royal Oak, but would like to try something different. I researched Amazon and found Fogo and Jealous Devil. I hear people mention Fogo frequently, and have never heard anyone talk about Jealous Devil. However, on Naked Whiz, Jealous Devil got a higher rating and is a better price per pound on Amazon. In fact, the review of Jealous Devil makes it sound excellent. 
       
      Does anyone have any experience with Fogo and/or Jealous Devil and have an opinion? Thanks!!
       
      P.S. The Amazon price for 70 pounds of Jealous Devil is priced almost the same per pound as what I pay for Royal Oak at Home Depot.

      Howdy Gurus!
       
      Nothing big here, just did a reverse sear on a Tri-Tip over FOGO.  I marinated it in my FoodSaver marinater.  If you don't have one, you should really check it out.  You can get one for under $20 at Amazon.  I highly recommend it.
       
      Here are a couple of pics at the beginning and end of the cook.  I just wasn't too ambitious last night, but all y'all get the idea.
       
      Beginning:
       

       
      Ending:
       

       
      So there you have it.  I took the Tri-Tip to 120F on the grates, cranked up the volume to about 475F.  TheBeast took about 10 minutes to go from 200F to 475F.  I pulled at 128F, tented on the carving board for something like 7-10 minutes and then carved and served.  Just your typical reverse sear.
       
      Thanks for looking.

      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!

      This is a BIG piece even by FOGO standards!  That welders' gauntlet you see goes all the way to the elbow.
       

       
      Here is the gauntlet next to an average piece of FOGO.

      So... I ve purchased FOGO several times through Amazon, and its kind of ruined me for other charcoals.  I started out using RO then KJ Lump and now after cooking on FOGO, I get real dissapointed when I open a bag of anything else that I buy locally.  I was wondering if anyone else feels the same way? and if anyone has found a cheaper alternative to FOGO? I ll still buy KJ Lump and I had pretty good luck with Wicked Good too.
