COAL TEST - Jealous Devil XL - Startup / Longevity
I weighed out two pounds of Jealous Devil with fairly consistently sized pieces into the small Kick Ash Basket. I loaded that into the Kamado Joe Classic 3 and used the propane torch for exactly 45 seconds to light the coal. I installed the heat deflectors and grill grates in the grill. I set the Kontrol Tower top vent to the first mark. I powered up the FireBoard 2 Drive and set it to run at 300°F with the fan max set at 20%.
Time to temp on this test: 38 minutes (7:20am to 7:58am)
Time at temp on this test: 2 hours and 46 minutes (7:58am to 10:44am)
Time at temp was measured from the time the grill hit 300°F until it fell to 280°F with the fan running.
I paid $31.95/20lbs directly from jealousdevil.com - $1.60/lb
