For those in Northern VA and Maryland, give Humphrey Lump a try. A brethren, BBQ Equipment Store sells it. Burns clean, hot, and long. No trash in it and consistently sized.

the prices probably differ regionally, we've had that price for close to a year.

My father in law used to use Cowboy, and it sparked too much for him on his Green Egg. He switched to Wegman's as well, and swears by it.

I'll be driving through VA next week. I'll have to stop in. I'm sure the family won't mind some more halfmoons also.

They probably do, but we could easily not have noticed since my BBQ-addiction didn't set in until I got my Egg last summer. Hope they continue that for a good while longer!

I wiped my store out a while ago in Jersey. I like it, although it is only lump i have used. Always seems to burn great and never any oddities in my bags. I only have a couple left so I should probably check to see if my wegmans ever got any back in. I got crazy looks at Christmas when I asked if they had any charcoal in the back. lol

Today I'm trying some of this lump out and so far so good. I lit about 4 pieces on the side burner of my old gasser and there was very little popping. It lit up nice in about 5 minutes.



I put the lit pieces in the small cleared out area with the rest of the lump for a variation of the minion method. It came up to around 230 pretty quick. I will be leaving it at that temp for about 1.5 hours before cranking the temp to 300-325.

Chriscw81 although I do not know you I kind of get the feeling that you know absolutely nothing about bar b queing. Everyone knows the best thing to smoke with is cut up cardboard boxes and pine needles.

Bro all BS aside I was looking on Amazon and finding prices on some lump at around 1.50 a lb. For my briquettes I'll stick with Kingsford, and for my lump I'll stick with Wicked Good.

Yeah, this stuff just happens to be local and cheap. I have WG sitting in the garage as I type. Good stuff. I would recommend checking Kroger in your neck of the woods, though. I hear their lump is also made by royal oak. You'll be impressed, if nothing else, it's cheap.

Hrrrm don't even know of any Krogers around me. I dont mind ordering it. If I buy bulk i'll probably get a good price. I noticed yours was in a plastic tub. Great thinking. Def need to do that!

Keep an eye out for sales at Wegmans. We bought some of their lump a few years ago when they had a sale on it. I think we paid something like $3.00 per bag.

I agree, it is good stuff.
