    Was at Sams' Club today. They had 43lbs of regular Kingsford for $14.00 and change. Was 2, 21.5 lb bags shrink wrapped together.

    At Kmart they had 18lb bag of Royal Oak for $5.99. I got the very last bag. [​IMG]

    Those are good prices for around here.

    I keep my eyes open, and buy big when I find a good price. Last year, Costco put two shrunk wrapped bags of Original Charcoal Company lump on sale for $3.97...I couldn't believe it, $3.97 for twenty lbs! Needless to say, I bought as much as I thought Mrs. Engineer would let me get away with. Glad I did, because I have been smoking a bunch this winter.

    Check out my stash.
