Iam retired and live on wester slope of Colorado. I love BBQ and I have had lg. stick burner, electric, ugly drum smokers, Primo and now I just ordered XL BABY. And my first but not last question: what is the burn time on XL Baby @ 225 degrees?
P.S. You can tell Thad loves his work.

Welcome and congrats on your purchase! I have an XL Baby and LOVE IT! As far as cook times on a load of coal go.... Since the chute lights at the bottom, it isn't like where in your Primo for example you load it up with coal and get a 12 hour burn. You can keep topping it off throughout the cook. Depending on the fuel type (lump, briquettes) and sometimes the brand you can get slightly different burn times out of a single load. But one thing I read here when I was getting started was not to let your chute ever get to "Empty." So while I might let it burn for 4-5 hours before I top it off again, it may be only half empty and I'll still top it off. I never let it completely run out. And technically, you could keep the thing running all week as long as you keep refilling the chute. And more times than not, I still have a third to half a chute left when I go to cook again next time. Hope this helps "somewhat" answer your question. I could guess at the burn times on a full chute, but I don't want to give you any bad info.
Chris

Welcome to the Nation. Congrats on the XL Baby. Your are going to love it. I would say at 225, you easily get a 15 plus hour burn

Eric.

Welcome to The Nation. Burn times vary based upon outside temp. Most of the year, Padge is right on. In the winter, cut your burn time by 1/3.

First off, Congrats on your new cooker and welcome to the hood. You will enjoy cooking on a Stumps. On average, your cooker will consume 1~1.5lbs of charcoal briquettes per hour @ 225 degrees cook temp. Your altitude and outside could affect your avg, however this is will give you a guideline to start with. Living in CA, I have not experienced the outside consumption swings others have described. Don't hesitate to ask questions.

In Florida, I seem to get longer burn times than people in Minny-Soda. Even in the winter, my burn times aren't that bad since my ambient temperature is lots higher than most 'round here.

Like has been said, type and even brand of charcoal effects the burn times. I'm kinda like BrewnQue in that I very rarely let the chute burn down to empty. It's easy to empty the ash pan and refill the chute during a cook.

I have noticed that using a BBQ Guru (or similar ATC) I do use just a little more charcoal than I do without the fan.

Ask away, you'll get an answer from somebody and if we can't find the correct answer, we'll make something up for ya. :roll: :lol: ;)
