View Full Version : Smoking time on full load lump?

05-13-2013, 12:08 PM
Just wanted to know what the max smoke times people are seeing going @ 225. The longest thing i smoked was some baby backs which was 5 hours and it had about half the charcoal left but it was a little cold out...around 50 degrees.

I'm hoping a full load of lump in the summer will get me towards 15 hours.

I did a cook on 15 hours on 210* - 215* That was a mix of charcoal and briks

I am coming up on 5 hours right now on a whole basket full of Royal Oak lump and some hickory chunks. Smoking 4 Boston Butts so I will be a long cook so I will let you know how long this basket full lasts me!

The basket lasted me over 15 hours on one heaping basket full of Royal Oak lump charcoal. Those drums are fuel misers!
