Lord what was I thinking . I bought some Sam's Choice Charcoal since they were out of Kingsford last week. Now I know why they had so much of it. That is the WORST stuff ever to be bagged and sold. I wouldn't use it again even if they paid me. Thank goodness I had enough kingford left to keep this crap going. Been cooking longer than I wanted to be. Just a warning for anyone who may be entertaining the idea. DON'T DO IT!!
