I picked up 24 bags (8.8lbs) of Maple Leaf Natural Hardwood briqs from a craigslist ad in Seattle today. Did a quick Google search on it and came up with a couple forum hits with good reports, the Naked Whiz recommends the Maple Leaf Lump but not much info on the briqs.
Turns out the guy is an Egghead and bought up the remaining stock of an out of business Spa & Stove shop in Eastern Washington and loves the lump and used the briqs in his Weber, but found he was using the Egg more-claims these have a sweet flavor to them, I think I got a sweet deal $2.50 a bag you do the math, I will give them a try this weekend.
Anyone ever tried them?
