    I know there are a couple threads talking about Lump so excuse me if it isn't right to start a new one!

    I have used B&B for about 6 years and it pretty good but I was wundering what else might work well for a little less $$$.

    I bought a bag of VISION from SAMs for 12.93 and used it today. I was very disappointed. It was about 25% dust, 25% chips 25% medium chunks and 25% large pieces.

    Have never had that much throw away with B&B. Anyone else used Vision. Anyone used both B&B and Royal Oak for comparison?

    Thanks, SMOKE ON!

    I have not done any direct side by side comparison, but I have used Royal Oak for about 6 years and I love it. It lights quick, burns hot and lasts very well. No trash and very little ash. Give it a good try and I'm sure you'll like it.

    Good luck, Joe
  3. Ever tried Lazzari?

    Personally I use either Royal Oak for smoking and Lazzari for grilling.

    If there's a BevMo in your area, they may carry, or can order Lazzari.

    Yep, Lazzari is my favorite.  Works great for hot n fast or the grill.  It wasn't available for a while so I stopped looking.  Kind of shifted to Total Wine & More too so I'll have to run by a BevMo and see if they have it again here locally.
