I think HD had the 2x20's for 9.99 for 4th of July or Labor Day last year. For some reason I remember the smaller twin packs being on sale at HD and Walmart for Memorial Day.

The only issue I saw so far are TOO BIG of pieces, a nice problem to have, especially for the low and slow folks such as myself.
Back of small hammer.

TAP

Presto - big pieces -> small pieces.

YMMV

I've found that tends to leave too much powder and tiny pieces. I used a chisel and tap the back of THAT with a hammer. creates manageable chunks instead of tiny pieces

I just take a screwdriver and wedge in in between the cracks of the chunk and it and twist comes apart pretty neatly

Looks like that is the deal for this year. Ends up being $0.25 per lb.

This is the best deal I have found so far and just stocked up. My local Piggly Wiggly has the Best Choice 100% hardwood briquettes, 2 X 18lb bags, $6.99 for the twin pack. From what I have read this is Royal Oak just repackaged. That is .19 cents / lb

bummer, but kinda to be expected seeing the raised average price of charcoal in general

last year I could get the 2x20 lbers for $17.98 normal, now it's $19.98

$5.37 for an 18 lb bag of sams club/backdoor grill, now it's $6.49

:(

I went to HD for lawn care products, and the have the kingsford double blue in pallets ready, but a note says for sale on the 23rd. I asked an associate and she said they will be for 9.98. Not as good as the wally world, but if you cnt find them at wally (bc sold out), this could be you next best thing.
