Ok, just for you Spiffaroo. It’s time for a change of scenery anyway.

So according to the web site you never use charcoal briquettes in a BGE? I’m not talking match lite here - but legit charcoal?


Lump charcoal only. Buy the 30 lb bag of Royal Oak at Walmart.

FWIW, the 36" Blackstone griddle has been a fun diversion for quick cooks, restaurant-style burgers, etc. It's been a great addition to the outdoor kitchen.

I think the actual BGE brand lump might be the best imo

I mean they’re all basically the same, but the BGE brand seems to burn the longest.

The cowboy whatever-it-is brand is definitely the worst though. Burns way too quickly

Just put some lamb shanks on...

-olive oiled
-salted & peppered
-then indirect at 350
-will probably take an hour and a half or so

-then when they’re looking righteous
-remove and crank up to 550 or so direct
-and roast some new potatoes on there in a cast iron skillet
-then throw the shanks back on and flip around to get some char crisp on them

-yeah buddy

-eat with some salad and some spicy dry red wine and it’s like you’re a king

It sounds wonderful. I mean that.

Something that could never be accomplished any other way than a BGE. I don't mean that.

You’ve made some very bold statements in this thread coming from a man who cooks with Kingsford charcoal on a table top grill.


I don’t want to flex on anyone...but I won the last ROMF using Kingsford charcoal and a Weber Smoky Mtn. smoker.

Even with Rig trying to get sympathy votes from the judges by exploiting his kid.

I love lump for a number of reasons but don’t be dissing Kingsford.

It was more a dig of Rig for his sporting that silly Kingsford charcoal avatar at one time.

Charcoal is good by me. Living out in the Cohutta Wildnerness I know you have to be an expert on cooking with wood.

And don’t forget that I am a GSBROMF multiple award winner over the years we have held the event. Remember, I had the GOAT ROMF innovation with the temperature probe inserted in a crab cake on a pellet grill/smoker.

BGE lump IS Royal Oak. They just get the first pass of the biggest pieces that go in the green bags and you get to pay 200% for it. The next run goes in the red RO ones.

It's made in Roswell, IIRC.

Get the table top one if you tailgate. Makes doing breakfast a breeze in the parking lot. I have used mine a bunch.

Oh I know...I was just messing around.

Seriously though, briquettes somehow taint the egg?

Royal oak is always good for a few huge chunks that clog the bag when you’re trying to pour it out. I swear some of it looks like recycled sawmill pieces...unless oaks grow in squares.

I googled that question when I accidentally bought briquettes instead of lump (no idea how that actually happened) and decided it wasn't worth the risk.

It may be a really clever marketing ploy to encourage people to buy BGE lump charcoal, but who knows.

I spent a year at BGE corporate as a volunteer at their Culinary Academy, so the lump vs briquettes question came up a lot.

Charcoal briquettes are basically made of the dust and tiniest of pieces of hardwood charcoal that's left over from the lump lots. It's the Chicken McNugget of charcoal, held together by unnatural binder and chemicals, pressed into a semi-recognizable shape so people will buy it.

re: OT - Big Green Egg
We don't usually handle the cooking when we've tailgated at the games, but if I ever catch one of the 17" ones on clearance at Walmart, I'm buying one and figuring out how to use it later.

We love the big one. Mrs. Vox has cooked on it at least 5 times a week since after Christmas.
