I haven't noticed it at my Sams's, but I'm going there for some corned brisket. I'll have to ask about it.





I've cooked on mesquite charcoal for years and love it. Right now I get the Lazarri in 40# bags for $19. It's not as sparky as some. All mesquite lump has big pieces, but I built a lump whacker to even things out.

I've used it a lot and sparklers are not an exaggeration! When you are starting it up, you need to babysit it as it pops big chunks out of the chimney. I have some nice sized burn craters on my wood deck and a couple of burn scars on the soles of my feet. (OK, it's not a good idea to go barefoot around a popping fire! ;)

Plus, it has been my experience that a lot of it is way under-carbonized, so it is like cooking with a mixture of lump and mesquite. Can't beat the price though, for what you get.

That Bird came out looking real good. I remember being stationed out at Ft Carson, CO. back in 77 and we'd light a campfire during gunnery, and it was mesquite, It would "Snap,Crackle and pop all night long,, burnt some holes into my Field jacket trying to keep warm up there in the winter, lol, those were the days...

Just thought I should wrap this up by saying this is officially my favorite charcoal now. I have not had the problems with sparking/popping or the smoke ever since that first chimney full.

I posted my review of this stuff here.

Third I still love the long long probe you sent me to see if the briskets are juicy where I can't reach them... its like 22 inches long.

I call it Thirdeye's Big Juicy Probe.

I just bought a bag of it yesterday to use this weekend at a comp in Chandler, AZ. I used it for a bed of coals in my FAT 40 then just add wood as needed. Thanks for the review.
