Kingsford Charcoal Cost

Discussion in 'Charcoal Smokers' started by stevebell, Jul 15, 2011.

  1. I have a wsm and am looking for a good place to buy charcoal.  Costco has it 2 20lb bags for 16 bucks.  Home depot was two bags for 17 is the cheapest you can find it for usually?  Is there a better fuel to use for the wsm?

    Thanks and have a nice weekend.

    That's about as cheap as you will find. Home Depot had a sale a couple of weeks ago for 2 - 20 lb. bags for $7.99. That doesn't happen too often.

    Kingsford is consistent, theres a website that compares lump and coal, just look at my signature.

    I think about $8 is pretty common.  I use it for grilling and bringing my smoker to temp before switching to lump.  Home Depot had that 2fer sale, and I picked up 160 lbs.  That will keep me grilling for a while.

    Good luck and good smoking.
