charcoal

Howdy everyone...

I have a charcoal question! I am hopefully gonna pick up an ecb gourmet, I'm waiting to hear back from the guy on craigslist. My question is that I have read a lot of conflicting opinion about what to use in it and don't know what to get. I have always personally preferred lump over briquettes. But some seem to like the briquettes in the ecb. The Kingsford competition are on sale at Costco. But I have also heard that is not the kind of Kingsford people like.

Thanks in advance for your insight!!!

Get the Kingsford Blue Bag, the competition stuff is not that great and costs a lot more. With 4th of July around the corner Home Depot will put the two 20 lb. bags of blue on sale for about $10.

I prefer Stubbs charcoal briquettes over K blue bag, much better BBQ fuel IMHO. Royal Oak briquettes are also a very good product, I use them quite a bit as well.

I've almost finished my first bag of Stubb's and I like it better than any other briquettes I've bought. I decided to try it when I noticed that the bag was smaller but also heavier than other brands.

I use Royal Oak lump and start it with Royal Oak briqs. This make for a good clean hot bed of coals. I add splits to these coals to cook with. I haven't used KBB in several years. It has a strange odor and a ton of ash that can be a problem for air control. Give the Royal Oak a try and decide for yourself. Good luck, Joe

Thanks you guys!! I just said this on another thread but it bears repeating...

Thank you all for being so patient with my silly questions! I appreciate that you guys are so willing to share what you know with me, thank you!


I will start looking for Stubbs, our Walmart has all the usual royal oak and Kingsford but not much else, we have a pretty small store.
