Kingsford 30520 Competition Briquets, 11.1-Pound Bag

I Buy These In The Two-Pack At Costco

daRicksta

Pros: Burns Hot

Cons: Expensive, Coals Start "Shrinking" Before I Dump Them Out Of Chimney

Kingsford's changed the name of this from Competition to Professional. These have been my go-to charcoal briquettes for a few years since, as the title states, Costco sells this in a 2-pack. If you wait for the sale, you're now buying outstanding charcoal at a great price. They burn really hot, but I notices that the briquettes are noticeably smaller if I wait a bit too long before dumping them...

Western Pecan Mini Logs

Western Pecan Mini Logs

“Was wanting to smoke some pork butts over pecan, to see what flavor profile I would get.  Picked these up at my local Academy, for around $11.99.  Cleaned up the firebox, rubbed some butts, and lite the propane torch, to get these mini logs a smoking.  First thing I noticed, is that this wood was very dry, and I had to really close down my firebox, or the wood would burn, not...” --mthoward91

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! Someone suggested lump to me and low and behold, HD had Cowboy. Compared to Kingsford, it was awesome!   I'm not sure what happened but after the first year of using it more concrete...” --Chocolyle

Kingsford 71714 Matchlight Briquette

“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

“Actually picked these up on a lark from my local Kroger's Supermarket, when they had them on "Closeout", since they weren't selling.  Took them home, read the instructions, and figured I would smoke some salmon in them.  I've smoked salmon fillets on cedar planks before, and my wife and I adore salmon in this method.  Prepared the fillets same as if I were putting them on the...” --mthoward91

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
