Best lump charcoal
 
Ok so what do you think the BEST LUMP charcoal is. Been trying out more and more of it for awhile now. Used alot of cowboy charcoal which seemed pretty good, but everyone says it sucks. So enlighten me.

My entry of what ive used so far would be

Best of the west Oak lump charcoal.

What say ye brethern

Maple Leaf lump.

Can't get it in the States anymore (I don't think), but I ordered a couple of bags once, and it was like being in heaven when you burned it. Made only of Maple, Beech, and Birch.

Best.Lump.Ever.

Best I've used is Ozark Oak and Real Montana. Problem is that they're not available in my area and I'm not gonna pay the $ to get it online, so I've been using Royal Oak and it's been fine. I've had good luck with B&B oak lump as well, but where I get it it's a more pricey than I like to pay. I use the RM maple lump for when I need high heat quickly (like when I wake up and my fire's about out :shocked:) so I make sure I always have some of that around for those kinds of situations.

Ozark Oak is very good. Royal Oak (Made in the USA) is good too.

Have you seen the lump charcoal review database on nakedwhiz's site?

Wicked Good Weekend Warrior is wicked good and wicked expensive. I not use RO lump exclusively.

I like good one lump a lot. Burns hot and has very little waste. The chunks are pretty good size as well. I tried Cowboy last weekend and it was horrible in comparison. Pittiful little chunks and seemed to have a lot of waste!

Yea i guess i have noticed that about cowboy, few very huge pieces, bunches of small stuff that falls trough grate and not much of the good stuff. This oak lump i bought is better, way more expensive. But when i count the waste of cowboy and how well this burns i wonder if it is really that much more expensive?

I haven't used too many different brands, but I stick to Wicked Good Weekend Warrior now. I will still use Royal Oak on occasion if I can get the bigger bags, too many crumbs in the small bags from Wal-Mart.

I use Nature Glow. It is Royal Oaks food service lump. It has a ton of huge pieces and burns for a long time. It gets a 'highly recommended' rating from Naked Whiz. The food company I work for sells it, and I pay $13 for a 20 lb bag. If I'm out and need some, I buy royal oak at Walmart or Menards.

Sounds like something produced at Chernobyl :laugh:

Another vote for Wicked Good Weekend Warrior when I do use lump. I normally just use wood logs, but i like to change it up from time to time.

CMALANGA 09-01-2011 12:07 PM

ROYAL OAK, ROYAL OAK, ROYAL OAK. Yes even the stuff from Paraguay. Don't beleive me. PM me your address and I'll send you a bag. (The offer is for tmelhorn wiseguys).

Per NW: "As for burntime, this charcoal set a new Whiz world record, burning longer than any charcoal we have ever tested. Longer than Brassiero, longer than Kamado extruded coconut. The ash produced in our test burn was very low."

And it's local and plentiful :clap2:
