    B&B Char Logs

    Has anyone used these?
    Do they burn consistently as the briquets?

    #2
    Used them a ton. Harder to light than briqs but are denser and burn longer.

    comparison graph here for same conditions running in the MB 1050.



    I also like them for long PBC cooks.

    Calibration tests with no food to characterize settings. All using a level basket of KBB, and subset of that ignited by PBC chimney and lid clamped on immediately. I’m sure things will change with food load, but gives an idea how settings may affect things. Ambient temp was 30-40F. Altitude is sea level. Temperature at cook

      B&B are harder to light than smaller briqs true, but the char logs are smooth on the cylinder sides, so more work to get them to take. No problem for Weber cubes or fat woods if you have the patience. It just takes longer.

      OK, cause the B&B briqs are no walk in the park. With the Pit Barrel I would just use a partial layer of Kingsford on top just to get things started that much better.

      Yup. I would second Polarbear777 's comments around harder to light and longer to temp but definitely burn longer.
