Default Big Green Egg Lump Carcoal Question.....

We Just joined the egg owners group and looking for lump charcoal brand that has mild smoke flavor as opposed to the Heavy smoke I ended up choosing. Anyone care to share what you are burning, where you get it and why you choose it?? Thanks. I bought a bag of "Dragon Breath" when I picked up the Egg and I found it to be very Heavy and overpowering compared to what I was hoping for. I'm gonna try to pick up a bag of BGE brand hope for the best. Thanks for any input.

I use Royal Oak from Walmart. Seems to be a little milder smoke flavor. I have been very pleased with it.

I like Dragon's Breath....never tried Green Egg Brand, use Royal Oak alot and really like it.....Cowboy brand I hate (big chunks and burns quick), I just picked up a bag of ??? from Bass Pro (can't remember the name) and haven't used any yet....

I'd say to just try various bags and use what you can control best....Welcome to the family of EGGheads!!!

I like the BGE brand best but when I run out I use the WD Natural stuff. Works well for me.

Royal Oak is good. I've also had good luck with the Publix brand.

Thanks for the suggestions...so far, it seems like there is no wrong answer. I tried the Dragon Breath again, and it did not seem as strong second time....still gonna try the others mentioned.....

Royal Oak Natural is good, I use that most all the time.
If I want smoke I soak some chips and add them to the side of the fire.
Iffin you are cooking indirect (with the plate) just put the chips on the plate itself.
We did some drunk chickens this way, yummy!

S/L I use the Royal Oak and love it...Cheap,Good Sized Chunks.
Make sure you let it burn a little while, Stabilize Egg temp and cook on.
Also if you are using those waxy/sawdust starters put them in your Hurricane
supplies and get an Electric Starter. And no matter how you cook Beer it is always too Smokey and Congratulations on your entry into The BGE World.

PS Remember the Egg Cooks with P.F.M.
