Just not a fan of it. I'm a stubb's convert. Kingsford IMO makes too much ash and just doesn't burn as well as the stubb's. That said though, I also use Royal Oak lump too. Unfortunately, Lowe's and Wal-Mart both phase out the RO and Stubb's because I'm apparently the only one that buys it during the winter. So before Thanksgiving I usually stock up. This year I didn't because I wanted to spend the money to try out electric and/or gas.
To those saying I should build a UDS, I mostly certainly could and might, but that again would require me to have the stock pile of charcoal for the winter. If I build one, it wouldn't be until next year depending upon how the electric/gas experiment goes.
Thanks for all the responses!
