When I was placing an order with FireCraft last week I also asked about the Cobb grill. The Customer Service rep told me they were going to be the distributor for the Cobb Grill to include all accessories. Not sure when thisis suppose to take place but I thought he said heexpected their first shipment of grills etc later this month. He also siad they had quite abit of lokki charcoal. they were selling it for 11.99.

I will call and confirm the date they are schedule to begin selling Cobb's full line.

I reconfirmed with FireCraft. They will be the distributor for Cobb grills in America. They have been notified by Cobb Grill that the items are in customs. Although FireCraft is not sure when the items will clear customs they are expecting to have all items on line by next month.

Hmm, sounds like I should go ahead and order those accessories I put off getting. Before they really are gone for good.

I wonder if Cobbs sell well somewhere else in the world?

I always have a problem getting the Cobb grill hot. So I was wondering if anyone has had a similar problem. I am using the same natural lump charcoal that I use with my green eggs.

How many lumps are you using at a time? For briquettes, it takes about a dozen for high heat (but only 8 if you only need medium heat). I haven't tried lump charcoal in mine, but it's possible that you may need more pieces.

The challenge I am having is getting the charcoal to light. I lit it a 4:45 this afternoon and less then half the charcoal is lit. When you light yours do you keep the lid off until the coals are lit or grey? It is just frustrating.

I use a firestarter under the cage and leave the lid off until they are nice and grey. I also use the lump charcoal. Sometimes I use two little firestarters or if I have the long rectangular ones I'll break it in two and light both ends so I can get the whole basket going at once.

When I called Fire Craft to order the Dome extenders, I asked the question about lump charcoal and was told to use the standard charcoal. After I received the Dome Extender, I used about 10 briquets to cook a whole chicken (in the up-right position). It took a little over an hour and it turned out to be very delicious. Used a can of beer in the moat to steam it. Great results. Wife said I did good!
I left the lid off of mine while getting the coals going, but did put the grill (round top with many holes in it) on to heat. Took about 15 minutes for coals to be fully ready.

Did they give a reason why lump should not be used and can you tell the type of briquets you are using. Thanks

Instructions say lid and cooking surface off. What I do is light it. When the flames go out and the charcoal starts smoking (about 5 minutes last time), I let it sit some more. When the smoke goes away and all you can see is ripples in the air from waves of heat rising (about 20 minutes last time), I put the cooking surface of choice on to warm up for a few minutes before adding the food.

I have had good luck with the lump charcoal. I can't think of any reason not to use it, except it's easier to dose out the uniform sized briquettes for more predictable results.

All this talk has me planning to break out the COBB and roast a chicken tonight (yum). Any recommendation what sort of beer works good in the moat? I am not a beer drinker, so I find the selection bewildering, but I have no problem cooking with it.

IMHO... the cheaper the better! Good beer is for drinking!
