Found some really good (Ranchers) hardwood chacoal

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
Smokers,
I don't know about you but ever since Kingsford changed their charcoal recipe, I've been looking around for some other type. I've been using the hardwood chunks (good but a little expensive) but still miss the convenience of the briquette. I picked up some "Ranchers 100% all natural Hardwood Briquette Charcoal" at my local Home Depot. It comes in 20 lb. bags and is $4.99. Reading on the bag, it's made by The Original Charcoal Company out of Charlotte, NC. They have a web site (www.original charcoal.com) that you may want to check out. Seems they are operating in about 17 states.... mostly in the southeast but also up into Illinois and Washington. I have absolutely no financial interest in the company but if you are like me and miss the old Kingsford briquette, you might want to give "Ranchers" a try if its available in your area. I've used it in my weber grill and also in my offset smoker and I'm now a customer. Convenient briquette with absolutely no coal smell or taste. I recommend it.

Thanks for the info Bill. I haven't been happy with the burn time of other briquettes when cooking in my Dutch Ovens. Plan on trying some soon if Home Depot in my area carries it.

Ask the manager at your local Home Depot if he will stock the item. In NY all the HD's have it and I believe there was a thread before Memorial Day on it being 2.99 a 20lb bag. You can't go wrong at that price and the stuff burns pretty good although it does produce some ash.

They have it in AL, I used it for my first smoke last weekend. I smoked a
Butt and used the Minion Method and was very pleased with it. I paid $4.99 a bag for it but that's still bargain
