    I just had to tell somebody that I knew would appreciate the story. That is why I am telling it here in smoking heaven. I ran out of lump charcoal this week and went to Costco to get more. I tried Costco's lump and it was far superior to Cowboy. It burns hotter and keeps my temps up in my ECB with no mods. I got 2-10lb bags bundled together for 7.99 and have been buying it all summer. Costco had moved it and I had to look for it. Apparently, BBQ'n season must be ending cause Costco has the lump charcoal marked down. Yesterday I got 4 bundles (80 libs). It was 3.97 for 20 lbs. I thought about what a great deal it was for the lump and decided to go back and get more today. Glad I did cause it was almost gone. I started putting bundles in the cart and stopped at five. The wife says, go ahead- you might as well make it an even ten. I ended up with 200 lbs of high quality lump for $40. If anybody has a Costco near them, you should go first thing in the morning and look for this deal. Hope this deal is not just in Indiana.

    The one I got mine at was in Castleton. I know there is another Costco off of 465 and Michigan on the NW side. The store in Castleton only had maybe 15 bundles left after I got done. Dont know how much might be left by monday.
