Charcoal Lumps - ProQ Frontier


Recommended Posts

I would recommend the ProQ coco briquettes they do. They can stack neatly so you can Minion it. As they take ages to kick off, I use blue bag charcoal in the chimney starter to get the cubes going. Last cook of 2020 and I did a double ring, 2 high stack lit in the centre and didn’t need to top up in a 6 hour cook, plus there was enough left for a couple of hours of fire pit to social distancely invite the neighbours round in the garden.

Great photos :thumb1:

I see that you are only using them one block deep. If you are finding it difficult to get the smoker up to temperature add a second layer in the inner ring. This will give the smoker an extra heat boost at the beginning. Don't worry about wasting briquettes as when you finish the cook just close both the top and bottom vents and that will extinguish the briquettes. When cold, shake off any excess ash and re-use them for the next cook.
