In the past Month I have tried all these in my gravity feed

KBB, Kingsford Comp, Royal Oak lump and Royal Oak Briqs

Flavor wise I haven't noticed a difference between any of them

The only difference has been the ash that is produced between them.

So in the End , I've loaded up on the Walmart Backyard Grill ( Royal Oak Ridge) Briquettes. They burn well and cheap . $5 for 16 or so pounds of it.

Have been using KBB but tried B&B a few cooks back. B&B runs hotter and I like the flavor/smell better than KBB. I wish I could find it as cheap as KBB. I have been looking around but so far no luck.

If anyone knows a great source please post, thanks

- Don't like lump, runs too hot and the pieces are not uniform in size
- KBB is most consistent and you can really load up during the holiday sales
- KBB smells terrible
- Stubb's has an off-putting smell and takes longer to ash over
- Royal oak is the best one out there
- Check out Trader Joe's brand
- Who uses charcoal, use splits

Edit. Sorry forgot a few:
- Kingsford Comp is better than Stubb's
- Stubb's is better than Kingsford Comp
- Kingsford Comp and Stubb's are about the same
- Stubb's produces much less ash than KBB
- Why buy charcoal when you can make your own?

You left out Match Light,...just sayin.

It's really what you get used to,
I like Royal Oak lump,
Great smell, and lights easily.
And can get it at Home Depot right down the street

Coshell is a tolerable briq once you get it lit. Burns clean, hot, long.

What about academy's outdoor gourmet ridge briquettes. I have been told they are made by royal oak and repackaged. They are cheap too. $5.99 for 16 lbs and they have a 2 pack even cheaper and go on sale from time to time

Asking for recommendations on what brand of charcoal to use is like asking folks what kind of truck to buy. There's always going to be chevy, ford or dodge folks. Each person chooses their brand based on different criteria and expectations. Personally, I'm usually hauling Kingsford Professional in the back of my chevy truck when I drive home from Costco....but if I saw a ford with the right price, reviews, and features I wanted....who knows, I might switch.

Yep. Gordons Food Service.

I believe both the lump and briqs are RO...the briqs are probably 2x the size of KBB.
