Looking forward to your report.

I think I see a few spears of green grass coming up in that picture?

It's what I used in the Mini-Stumpster on my "Yardbird cook on the Mini-Stumpster" post.

viewtopic.php?f=31&t=5815

One other thing that had me a little concerned was that in the Variable-Burn tray, the briquettes hold their shape after they are completely burnt, but collapse when I pull the tray out with the vibration, and fall into the ash pan. I am guessing that the weight of the briquettes above them would be enough to make them fall through the grate of the gravity chute, but I haven't tried it yet.

1. Strange thing happened last night. Briquettes bridged for the first time in my Baby. The briquettes must swell. I don't know, but I had to push from the top and tap the grate to get them to fall.

2. Then I opened the door to this:

A fine coat of white powder.

3. The smell is off a bit. Can't put my finger on the smell. But, it definitely does not have that nice smell that Stubbs has. I'll report back on if it imparts any flavor to the brisket later.

Thanks,

Bill

OUCH!

I guess I'll just save the coconut for the Mini-Stumpster and Tailgater.

Bill, I don't think they swell, but when the briquettes have burnt, they still retain their original shape, but are slightly smaller. I guess I was wrong about the weight of the unburnt briquettes being able to force the ash through the grates. Interesting.

Was this early in the cook? Or later when there wasn't as much unburnt charcoal in the chute?

In my cook, I detected no unusual smell or taste, and was thinking about using these briquettes for baking when I didn't want any smoke flavor at all.

Wow is right. Were you doing an over nighter or just pre warming for early this morning?

I topped it off at midnight and let it go at 225 F overnight so it would be ready to go in the morning. I did this because I know how long a chute of Stubbs burns at that temp overnight in the Baby. When I when outside this morning, the fan was chugging. I thought I was at the end of the chute. Boy was I wrong. I could see burning coals in the chute. I have noticed that the ash is not fine. It is clumpy, even after tapping the grate. I am going to go read the bag closer and see what the binder is.

Sure glad you didn't have a $60 brisket in that mess over night. Bad enough looking and finding what you did.
