I use KBB because I can get if for about half the price of Stubb's and I don't notice any difference at all and I don't like lump for my WSM.

i switched from kbb to stubbs to heb grand champion. i can get the HEB GC at about $.48/LB regular price and $.36/LB when it goes on sale. i would like to try the Trader Joe's but the closest store is about an hour away. Do It Best is about 45 minutes away. I have HEBs all around me. those of you in Texas might want to give the HEB stuff a try.

Hahahaha I knew I would get a variety of answers, but just wanted to see what the opinions were.

I picked up two bags of Ember's Brand Briquettes (made by, and looks exactly the same as Royal Oak Ridge) from Home Depot for $5.99/16lb bag. I'll let you know how they do this weekend.

Been using Stubbs, mostly because it produces a lot less ash, and im lazy when it comes to cleaning out the ash from my smoker. Backwoods Fatboy here.

In my opinion of the stuff I can get I rank them royal oak chef select first, kingsford competition second and stubbs third. They are ranked that way because I cook with my nose and of those three chef select smells the best while burning. I don't know what's happened to stubbs in the last year but I'll be danged if it doesn't take forever to get tbs running the minion method nowadays. And even then the smell is kinda off.


So....

1.Chef select natural briquettes by royal oak
2. Kingsford competition
3. Stubbs
4. All the other briquettes from kingsford, royal oak, embers ect.




.....I'm glad this was just briqettes. If it was lump it gets harder.lol

I'm sure old news to everyone here, but Cowboy bought stubbs charcoal. I've become a huge fan of ROCS. I suggest to anyone to perform this test at home to compare Stubbs and ROCS . . . fill a chimney with stubbs and dump (keyword dump) when top layer is ashed. Do the same with ROCS. My results are startling. Bottom third of the stubbs briqs are marble size. ROCS is almost all original size. I suspect it has a lot to do with the ridge shape of ROCS vs stubbs round size. And then measure time/temps.
