Local prices

Doitbest- 9$ for 10lbs
hd/Lowes- 7$ for 5lbs of weber
16$ for 18 lbs of char broil brand
8$ for 700 sq inches of stubbs hickory

Menard's "western" brand chunks

8$ for .32 cubic feet
5.50$ for 1/3 cubic feet
8$ for 550 cubic inches

Hard to compare the lot.
That's a tough answer. My initial thought is that the end result would depend on the type of wood. Some are more dense than others resulting in more weight per cubic foot. A cubic foot of hickory which is very dense, might weigh more than a cubic foot of maple (not exact, just an example).

Probably doesn't help you at all but something to consider.
