A couple of weeks ago I picked up a 30 lb bag ofLast weekend I picked up I think it was a 30 lb bag of B&B Competition Logs lump charcoal at Academy. I may try it this evening. I'll get pictures of it later. lump charcoal at Academy.

Alright, while doing some yard work last week I decided to check out this B&B Competition Char Logs stuff.

At first I thought it was all branches but it appears to be pressure formed sort of like a churro. They all have a hole through the middle of the log.




Here's what it looks like inside the bag.



Loaded some in the Keg to see how it burns.





It may be intended to be used in stick burners.



Here's what it looked like this morning after going out. I only let it burn while I was out in the yard which was about three hours. When I shut the vents on the Keg it was at about 450 degrees. I made no attempt to try to control the temperature of the Keg. I had the lid open to allow the logs to catch , closed the lid and just let it burn with no food on the grate.



Since this is a Kamado cooker I don't use a liquid lighter. I lit the middle of the pile with a MAPP torch.

It doesn't appear to have burned up much of the amount of logs I used.



I was busy but the smoke it produced was about average or maybe a bit more and the a smell wasn't bad.

Oh, one more thing, it's made in Mexico where a lot of charcoal in produced.

I slow roasted a turkey breast on the Keg this past week using the logs and it worked fine. The ash is sort of like that of briquettes. The logs seem to last a long time. I'll give it a try in a kettle type grill soon.

Never seen the char-logs but the B&B lump charcoal is pretty good.
