B&B Charcoal
 
I modded my UDS with an exhaust pipe that ended up leaking after the last rain storm and when I went to use it on Super Bowl Sunday there was 2" of water inside and my charcoal was ruined.

So I ran down to the store to grab some more and stumbled across B&B 100% lump oak charcoal. I've never heard of it, but got 3 racks of St Louis on them right now....I'll let you know how it goes and my thoughts.

It's good stuff brotha, you should like it ribs too:thumbup: the 20# bags have nice big chunks in them.

It is excellent stuff. I'm pretty sure you will like it.

MattG 02-07-2013 09:23 PM

You'll love it. Has a good bit of the larger chunks and very little chips and dust.

That's my go-to lump. It started showing up at Pavilions a few months back. Where are you getting yours?

I really like that stuff - it'll spark, but I'm more concerned with how it cooks, which is great.

+1. The 20lb bags do have big chunks and its pretty good for a reasonable price. Try and get the bags which are on a pallet - less handling means more intact bigger pieces. Lump is like glass - needs a bit of careful handling.

I use it all the time. It's easy to get and has consistently good quality.

DubfromGA 02-07-2013 11:26 PM

Sounding good.

I wasn't pleased at all with the bag of Royal Oak (red bag) that I bought at Walmart in an "emergency" situation the other day. I noticed that they had the B&B stuff, too.


I'll give it shot.

B&B is what I would use if I could get it. (Only managed to get my hands on one bad years ago. Loved it.)

B&B is my go to lump also. I couldn't find Royal Oak (USA) a couple of years ago, and bought a bag of B&B at Academy Sports.........long burn, hot, and very consistent.

Wal Mart of all places, but I needed some gun cleaner and decided to look while I was there. They also had bricks of Velveta, so I made some Mac n Cheese too.

You're all right on the money. Loved the smell of the smoke. It cooked about 25* hotter in my UDS than with the Kingsford briquets that I usually use (along with chunks of whatever wood I have/can find ~ just finished up a batch of hickory). After 3 hrs @ 300* I slathered w/sauce and gated down my intake to 225ish. Only was gonna do another hour, but ended up in the jacuzzi with the GF, so they went two hours and I over cooked 'em a bit. The small parts were dried out, but the thick ribs were still juicey with great flavor. I am sold!

Big Dan 02-09-2013 05:11 PM

Yeah those jacuzzi's will do that! :)

I've used probably 10 20# bags and just got my first couple chunks of concrete. Pretty good considering what I got out of royals oak.
