I bought 5 bags. In my novice opinion the bags seemed a little beat up but at half-price it is still a great deal.

i ended up buying 6 bags from the marlboro MA store, they had plenty. i too was going to buy more but in feeling the bags it seemed to be smaller pieces than i am used to getting. however, at $10 per bag a pretty good deal. i have not opened them yet to check sizes. BTW, a full pallet plus available at the marlboro store.

I grabbed 10 bags yesterday in Palmer with plenty more on the pallet. I'm usually a Kingsford guy but i've used Wicked Good before with positive results.

Opened a bag today, and did a non-scientific comparison w/ Mali's Gourmet I bought a few days ago.

I dumped each bag onto a piece of plastic, took pics, then gathered the bigger chunks from the pile and put them in a box. I shook the box when finished to settle the chunks, then took a pic. The Mali nearly filled the box while the WG was less than half full.

As everyone has said, there are lots of too-small pieces and dust in the WG. The bags have been handled quite a bit, it seems. Still, for $10, can't go wrong. The Mali's cost only $11 or $12, and probably is the better buy overall. MUCH less dust/tiny pieces in the Mali's as was expected. The product/bags are fresher. Here's some pics:

This looks similar to what I found. There is a lot of waste. WG usually has only a small amount of bits and pieces and is mostly large chunks.

just picked up 10 bags from my local OSJL for a little league fundraiser chicken dinner this saturday so hopefully it's good stuff. I did notice that the text was blue on the bags and I thought it was green on the weekend warrior blend I bought in the past. Also the bag is definately paper instead of poly

Anyone else had a chance to open a few bags to see what it is like?

Been using it the last couple of days. It seems to be decent so far. Not as good as the other Wicked Good that I've used, but good enough for $10 a bag.

As far as the writing on the bag, I believe that it's the original style, and the paper bag definitely is. The poly bags left a lot of strands mixed in with the charcoal that wasn't a good thing IMO.

I never noticed the poly strands in with the charcoal. I am going to go to a place that is a WG retailer and see if they are still selling the poly bags or if they are all paper now. In the past, there were really big chunks in the bag, so big that I had to break many of them to fit in a chimney unless I wanted to just use one piece.

A good friend of mine found a piece of WGC in one of his bags a short while back that measured 9 or so inches...cubed. I like bigger pieces, but that's a bit much!!!
