I didn't realize they were that much more cost wise. My wife buys them for me. I'm not going to question her, she might start buying "select" meats ;)
wait till the end of the season (like right now) and when they are on sale buy.
maybe it depends on what cooker you have and what your are cooking. i don't use them on everything.
try a burger or a classic t-rex steak or beef tenderloin with the chips at the roast part and tell me it's the same as oak chunks. we will agree to disagree then.
