    Hey all !! I'm in my local Home Depot frequently for business. My friend Steve that works in Garden told me Embers charcoal 15.4 lb bag is gettin clearanced out for a $1.90/ bag!! I bought 20 bags. Apparently they're switching over to 20 pound twin pack for $15. Thought I'd give everybody a heads up

    I worked in the Garden department from early March to mid-December. I quit because the hours were getting short and one of the assistant managers is a damn prick. Some guys are like that. I'm glad I'm not his spouse or child.

    Supposedly, the Embers is the HD house brand of Royal Oak briquettes.

    Glad to help.. I use Royal Oak lump for my Weber kettle, and I use Embers to start my stick burner. It used to be $3.99, then I guess RO or Home Depot figured they could jack the price up to $5.99. Glad to see it so cheap. 20 bags should last a while. I hate when these big box stores re-package things as a twin pack but when you do the math you're paying more for less.
     
  7. Thanks. I will check it out.
     
  8. Thanks for the heads up, ill stop by tomorrow morning to check.

    I had to run an errand this afternoon, so I stopped in at HD and checked for the Embers sale. Nothing but the double bags in the BBQ section. "Darn." Then, as I was walking to the other end of the store to the exit, there's two pallets of 15.4 lb Embers @ $1.90 per bag in the middle of the aisle. Back outside to get a cart. Got 10. Might go back for 10 more.

  16. Hope I haven't waited to long. Heading to the HD in the morning.
     
  17. Thanks Guys!!! I ended up with a total 125 bags. I passed the deal on to some fellow smokers in my neighborhood, but I think I should have about 80-90 bags for my self.
     
  18. Went over to local HD this morning in Hattiesburg, MS. They have been out for many weeks. Already have the double shrink wrapped on the sales floor. Visited with the guy over that department. He stated the original sale was $350.00 per bag and folks came in and bought it all for that price. Well if those folks only knew it was a buck 90 up north. LOL
