I don't understand the meaning of the sentence : "it was a big lug of a thing, of genuine heft." I don't understand the meaning of the sentence : "it was a big lug of a thing, of genuine heft." 1. "a lug of a thing"? 2. " genuine heft" ?

I read this as " a large object, of befitting weight“. Lug I believe is more commonly used to explain strenuously carrying or dragging something. Of genuine heft is like saying, a weight that's true to or befitting the said object. I may be off the mark a little bit, please correct me if so.
