Default Rancher vs Kingsford Comp

Just went to my local Piggly Wiggly to pick up some groceries and noticed they had 18 lb bags of rancher briquettes on sale for 6.99. I usually use KBB but was thinking of switching to the comp briquettes from Costco, as they are only a few bucks more than KBB and I would prefer to move to using a 100% natural charcoal to fire my UDS. Most of what I've seen on the archives here about Rancher is pretty durn old, so I was wondering if anyone had used Rancher and Kingsford Comp recently and has any insight as to the value/quality of either and how they compare. I have used the comp before cooking whole hogs and the smell was noticibly better FWIW...

Well I used Trader Joes, which is made by Rancher. I know because I emailed Rancher to verify.

I do not know if its the same formula, but its very good. I have used K Comp, Trader Joes and also Stubbs and they are all very close, very good for a natural briq

The people at Rancher are very responsive to questions
