Default BGE Charcoal?

Alright guys, I have used several different types of charcoal on the egg now and have been using Royal oak for a while now. I cooked a butt this past weekend and I ended up having to add charcoal to finish the cook.

I have hear good things about the Dragon's breath but the flavor of it was overwhelming to me, extremely strong smoke flavor.

What is the best with a mild smoke flavor for long cooks?

How long did you cook the butt? And did you fill over the air-hole level? That usually extends the cook time for an hour or so.

I cooked it for 8 hours before having to add more charcoal, it was at 125 degrees when I added. Yes I had it filled above the air holes.

I also have the large, I guess I need to put more charcoal in next time.

I love the flavor of the Royal Oak compared to the others. Out of all of them i have tried i thought DB was the worst flavor.

For those looking the Grocery Advantage in Cantonment has the 20lbs bags of Royal Oak for $9.41
