I use wicked good weekend warrior and found the long burn times make up for the upfront price. It burns almost twice as long as Royal Oak so the back end cost equals out. I haven't gotten any rocks or foreign material in any of the bags I have used.

I used to use Royal Oak but i have gotten mixed results. Some bags were fantastic but you could tell scrap wood was used. Some bags were terrible with rocks, insulation, and scrap wood.

I haven't tried enough different types to even attempt to identify the "best" lump. Fortunately, that isn't a problem....Ozark Oak works so well for me that I don't have a need for anything else.

From what I've heard, Ozark and Maple leaf are both outstanding. I recently picked up a 40 lb bag of nature glo from berger bros charcoal in chicago and am very happy with it (the guy who sold it to me said that its RO in different packaging).

I usually get my Ozark Oak at Harp's grocery when I'm getting the rest of the groceries. The price did go up about $1/bag since last year I've noticed. Guess I'll have to hope for a sale and stock up versus buying as needed.

My experience exactly. I bought 6 bags of RO and am looking forward to getting to the last bag, I use lump for grilling, pecan wood for smoking with a handful of lump thrown in every now and then as needed.

Used to get Cowboy at Menards in Iowa, haven't run into it here in Oklahoma, I'll be on the lookout for Ozarks after reading this post though.

Repost from prior.

My local ACE doesn't carry any lump except Cowboy and a store brand.

Does it really matter?? What I mean is the worst Lump is far superior to the best Briquettes!

Ozark Oak for me. Available at a local grocery store, Harps, so I don't even have to stock it at home even in the winter months. I let them keep my excess inventory, ha. It was $4.98 for a 10lb bag last year. Just boght a bag this spring and they went up to $5.27 per 10lb bag. Great value and great price. Made in Yellville, AR so mfg in-state for me.
