Found a new (to me) ' Char wood' by Kingsford. Has anyone used it yet? Is it any good or a waste of $$ ( ~6.50/bag)? Thought we'd try it tomorrow with our 1st fatties and ABT's. Thanks for any info in advance, Daun
He has, in my opinion, a good site comparing lots of different charcoal, and lump.....
In my opinion, for what it is worth, Kingsford made a tremendous mistake when they changed their original charcoal last year. I think they are grasping to try and get the market back. They lost a lot of customers over their change. Myself included.
You didn't mention the size bag. I paid $5.77 for 10 lbs of Royal Oak lump last year at Wal-Mart when they had it. I since have found a private party that makes his own, and I am getting a 19lb bag for $7 each. The only draw back, is he is almost 4 hrs away, so when I go get some, I like to get a large order. Last time, it was 14 bags......
And to answer your original question, no I have not tried the Kingsford.
Sometimes the newbie just shines thru :oops: . Haven't ventured forth to find specialty charcoal (use Kingsford + chips) but mabey the new Wally World nearby will have some of the royal oak as mrgrumpy uses. Live and learn while enjoying the TBS :) . Daun
DUH or DIR as my hubby says, didn't realize the irony of posting this in the joke form :lol: :lol: ! Seems as though that is the feeling about Kingsford charcoal so mabey it was a nod from the smoke gods
. Good catch Cajunsmoker ! Will post and let you know if this Charwood was worth it. Enjoy Superbowl Sunday-especially the commercials :D ! Daun
After reading mrgrumpy's link, I'm dissapointed in the implied performance of the product but are going to give it that college try tomorrow since its here :? . We'll let you know our thoughts on this product and thanks for the link mrgrumpy :) ! Daun
BTW, glad you found the link informative. I thought it was too. I have gone to it several times to compare products. Just remember, that this is his opinion and findings on the products. You might just like one he doesn't.
But I still like to compare the products before I use one.
That Kingsford Charwood BITES! Sparked and spit all over the place. Lucky we were on the concrete driveway cause the wind was causing havoc also. Save you $ and spend it on some quality fuel like Royal Oak as mrgrumpy suggests. Oh well, live, learn and smoke :D . Daun
