In Kebroak lump, the wood comes from central america. A 20 lb bag was donated to us by Sebastian from Kebroak. We used a chimney to start this lump for fear of fireworks. The lump lit easily it had a good smell no fire works. We did 2 cooks with this lump one low & slow cooking 6 racks of spare ribs. A grilled some ahi tuna and shrimp. The Kebroak lump burned long and clean while doing the ribs and when grilling hot no flaming embers and no off smells We compared this to royal oak charcoal and we’d have to say that it’s definitely better. The amount of fireworks is much less than royal oak. There were very few small pieces in the bag we had. Kebroak lump is a quality product and we plan on using this brand again.
