    I just got a 40 pound bag of lump for $16.99. A far better value.

    One of the local supermarkets is advertising Full Circle lump for $4 a bag
    (8.8 lbs). Not too bad, I'll probably pick up some, even though I'm not that
    low.

    If I had Mesquite growing wild in my back yard, I'd probably use it for
    cooking every chance I got :-) , as that is my favorite cooking wood.
    I'm not a purist in grilling or smoking. Some days I really need a good
    beef steak, but I prefer chicken or pork in general, and seasoned
    hickory is not as available as I would like. I've just been lucky that
    most others I have fed over the years like my cooking also. Sometimes I
    am a little to hot/spicy for them, but I try to consider them while cooking.

    Lump is far superior to Kingsford. I can't get it locally so I pay a
    lot more than Lou and it's worth every penny.

    for less money i can live with kingsford, I've made my own lump and I
    cooked with lump and really couldn't taste a difference. I did like that
    it left virtually nothing to clean up.

    If you are willing to cut some branches up, come by and get post oak for
    free! <lol>

    Kinda like Indian Curries... I'm currently experimenting with Indian
    spices, minus the hot stuff!

    Thanks for the offer dear, and I would take you up on it, but I am too
    loaded down just dealing with my ten acre jungle right now. The temps
    and rain pattern have combined to grow stuff as quick as 3" per night.

    I do have a decent chain saw, and a mini one good for the smaller stuff,
    so if I ever make it down for a visit, I will make short work of it, and
    in return leave you a nice cord or two to dry for you :-)

    That's not as bad as what I was afraid I'd see. What do you have to
    pay for shipping? Doesn't Ace or True-Value carry it? I think you
    can even have Ace order Royal Oak and you don't have to pay for
    shipping. I know firewood is even hard to get down there but I've
    made chunks and put them in a chimney and set it on a turkey fryer to
    burn down a bit and tossed that in the kettle. It's not as convenient
    as a bag of lump but it works fine.

    If you can't tell then you should use the cheap stuff. It is
    surprising someone with a Q site likes kingsford.

    Doesn't that tell you something?

    It doesn't hurt to stock up. $4 is a good price. I really didn't need
    any but it was too good of a price to pass up. I've been paying $12
    for a 20 pound bag.

    I've got you beat here. Our local place, OSH (Orchard Supply Hardware),
    has a 2-pack for US$16.97! What size? Who knows! But it's the new &
    improved original!

    I'm going to rush right on down there. As soon as I stop laughing.

    They also have a brown bag special, an 18 pound bag for US$4.98.

    Really. Smoking with Kingsford is practically unheard of. Except
    on FoodTV.

    I just bought some Stubbs briquettes (the new breed of 100% wood
    and maybe some starch binder). $6.99 for 20lbs. It's easier to
    work with than lump.

    I only bought Kingsford once. I didn't like it.
    The best briquettes, in my opinion, are the
    Safeway store brand, though I haven't bought any
    in several years so if they've changed I don't
    know about it.

    Before I stopped BBQing, I was buying 40 lb sacks
    of mesquite lump charcoal at Smart & Final.
    My main complaint about lump is that about 1/3
    of the bag would be pieces too small to be useful.
    It would vary a lot from bag to bag.

    8.8lbs means it's mostly likely Cowboy brand "lump", rebranded.
    But this time it appears that this is actual wood from Arkansas,
    not floor scrapings.

    That's Original Charcoal Company's Rancher's Reserve. They said
    they were working on a deal with OSH for Memorial day.

    It's very good, all natural briquettes bound with yucca starch.
    It was one of the original all-natural briquettes out there on the
    market.

    I would buy at least 10 bags.

    Here's the email I received from them (with explicit permission to
    share it, in case anybody feels a cow coming on).

    Hi Steve,
    Thank you for your email. I am forwarding it to our contact
    with Costco and Home Depot.
    We have been supplanted at Costco and Home Depot for the Clorox
    Chemical Company's Kingsford "Competition blend". This despite
    the fact that we would over 40% less expensive at Costco and 1/2
    the price of what Home Depot charges for the chemical company's
    brand!!! Also, despite out-selling the chemical brand in each
    chain during the time that we were there.
    Please feel free to mention this on the forums:

    -TRADER JOE'S: RANCHER is selling at Trader Joe's across the
    country for $6.99/18lb($0.388/lb).
    -COSTCO: Clorox's (Kingsford) "Competition Blend" is $16.59
    for 33lbs ($0.503/lb)
    !!!23% higher price than All-Natural
    RANCHER!!!
    -HOME DEPOT and LOWES: Clorox's (Kingsford) "Competition
    Blend" is $8.99 for 12lbs ($0749/lb)
    !!!48.2%
    higher price than All-Natural RANCHER!!!
    -Orchard Supply Hardware: Will carry RANCHER for a Memorial
    Day promotion well below the Costco price.

    We can ship pallet quanity direct for $350 (70X18LBS), plus
    freight as quoted by freightquotes.com. We have been shipping
    pallets and even 1//2 truck loads to individuals and groups around
    the country.
    Please let us know what we can do for you.
    Thank you for your interest and support.
    Enjoy the day,
