Speaking of charcoal....
I generally use royal oak lump. I went to walmart because I was out and it seems they were out too so I got Best of the West Oak lump. I became suspicious when it was putting off lots of really blue smoke even though it was burning well. I put it in the akorn and grilled up some steaks and they had an off flavor from the charcoal. I just used a little seasoned salt on them like I always do. The weird thing is that I read reviews on this charcoal and people say they like it. Did I get a bad bag? What could've happened to it to cause this?
