I looked at the bag. Cornstarch is the binder. Perhaps that is the smell?

Guess I will grill with the other bag. :roll:

OK, I missed the cornstarch part.

Potato starch is the binder for Stubbs. I guess I read the "starch" part and since I was reading quickly, I didn't notice the difference between corn and potato.

Cornstarch adds little or nothing to the taste when we cook with it. I guess the jury is still out on whether it changes taste when it's burned.

I have a fire lit in the Mini with the coconut, pre-heating for a pork loin that'll have minimal seasoning and very little wood. I'll report back with any unusual or unexpected tastes.

Notice the finger mark on the foil? I was able to wipe corn starch off the top of the foil...

Will not be using this again in my Stumps...

That's a Bummer, Bill. If it's on the foil like that, then you have to believe it's on the food as well. IIRC Rancher had the same white residue issue a couple years back, not sure if it was a result of the binder. However, Buster told me back then to clean the pit, re-season w/ a full chute of lump and change to Stubbs. Followed his info and haven't had any issues since. Appreciate the feed back, won't be putting any of that stuff in my shopping cart.

Was a real shock JT. Thanks for the clean out procedure. Guess it will be a burnout weekend... :twisted:

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

I wasn't thrilled with the Coconut, it has next to no smell if you compare to most any other fuel. If that is what you want then use the chips of choice and use them from the time you start the fire until the end. Now the packaging is loosely done so the briquettes get beat up and you have a lot of ash. I love Stubbs and even use cowboy if I feel like breaking them up. I will stay with Stubbs or even the Kingsford competition, I have never used the mesquite Kingsford so some one please comment on that if you will.
