Royal Oak 100% All Natural Hardwood Lump Charcoal

3/5 - inconsistent lump size and burn rate

HardwoodAlchemy

Pros: burns clean, easy to light

Cons: less consistent burn rate than KBB, inconsistent lump size, very dusty

WSM 22.5, charcoal chimney, modified Minion method   I tried a couple bags of RO Hardwood Lump, but have returned to using KBB.   The RO Lump lights easily and burns clean, but I was unable to regulate the heat as well as I can with KBB.

Kingsford 30520 Competition Briquets, 11.1-Pound Bag

“I had been using lump charcoal, but I got tired of the small broken unusable pieces in every bag. Not to even mention the occasional rock that I PAID for in the weight of the bag!!!   These competition briquettes give me a very hot, consistent burn with ash amounts very similar to Royal Oak lump. No wasted small particles in the bag. EVERYTHING I paid for can be used in my grill! ” --rkonrad45

Cowboy Hardwood Lump Charcoal (23288)

“ The first year it was ok, after that it went down hill, BAD!   Coming from gas grilling to charcoal, I was having a bear to get Kingsford to light and the sandy texture to my food was awful!

“I refuse to use this lighter fluid soaked charcoal.......if you're at a tailgate just making burgers n hot dogs, sure you can use it. But personally, it goes against everything I stand for when it comes to grilling and smoking.  All natural lump charcoal or even just your standard Kingsford briquettes are the only way to go. (Stubbs Charcoal also top notch) ” --McLoven1t

Royal Oak Charcoal Briquettes 20 lb Bag

“I use this charcoal all of the time! It has a good flavor ,and burns hot and clean. The only thing that I have a problem with is that it burns too fast for low and slow cooks that last over about 3or 4 hours. On the positive side of things it burns clean, and does not  leave a fowl taste or smell in the food like some other name brand charcoals do!!   ” --James1970
