If you're using K now, try some stubbs and you'll never go back. Has the consistancy you wont find with K.

Been using Stubb's briqs for 3-4 months now. No problems. Burns hot, minimum ash, no off taste or smell. Good stuff.

So does everyone in the BBQ world,That's the trade off of briq vs lump.I would love to find one too.Not all brands are carried all over.I just bought 2 bags of Maple Leaf briq's and am trying it.Their lump is one of the best so I thought there briq's must be good too.

Does stubbs have similar ash production as wicked good briquettes? The naked whiz does mostltly lump charcoal and they have a good write up on wicked good briquettes is stubbs similar.

Thanks to this thread. Just went down to lowes and picked up a bag of stubbs. I love going all natural routes vs chemical routes any day. I almost bought the kingford comp but the borax is a turn off. Stubbs is all natural and ill test it out tomorrow. Ill chime back with my impressions.

Side note, just used some royal oak and i wasnt exactly impressed. Only had about 8 hours from a full basket in my UDS, where i normally get 12 hours easy with a full basket with charcoal. Food didnt have any unnecessary tastes to it, so that is a plus. Biggest turn off was the white flakes(similar to paper being burn) flying around from the royal. not sure if there was paper there or not, i didnt sort it at the beginning. Error is on RO part though.

Seriously bro?? I've burn alot of stubbs and had nothing but good results... It smells like a natural wood fire vs the nasty funky chit that comes out of a bag of K...
There are better natural charcoal briqs out there, but I absolutely would not put this one at the bottom of the heap of "the worst"

Have you had better sucess with something else? Please tell... always looking for a better briq!

I think you'll find that the ash tends to fall away from the briq as it burns instead of holding on like others with binders & coal do. This helps your burn be more consistent.

Only way to know for sure is to try it.

This isn't a commitment for the rest of your life, it's 1 farkin' bag. Buy it, burn it, then make a decision!

I bought 2 bags of Stubbs from Lowes here in Ithaca NY. I use a chimney to start my charcoal. The Stubbs sparked the entire time and smelled like chit. The flavor it put on the meat was toxic, worse I have ever had. It was like there was flint in every brick it sparked that bad. That being said, I read alot of good folks having great results with Stubbs. Maybe, a bad bag? I took the other one back and got my money back. I use Royal Oak Lump, but want a brick that is "natural" for longer burn times. If I use my offset, I stick to real wood.
