Reading this thread I realized I'm out of coal and have a dinner grill planned.

Off to the store!

But I also get taking advantage of charcoal sales when it's like 25 cents a pound, too.
Nicely put. As if I wasn't pushing marital limits already, thinking about getting a second wood rack so I can have the chance to season 6-12 months as Franklin does

That's a very easy answer. If it has rained on your wood pile for several days, just use up some of that charcoal. No problem. You could be like some folks that I read about, "my power went off" or better yet, "my heating element went out". Those are the folks that are really in bad shape.

Do have a four foot long woodrack full of oak and and a dwindling pile of pecan wood.

Do have a six briskets in the freezer, a fridge full of various beers and several bottles of bourbon.
It's not about the number of trips. If you use a good amount of charcoal, it's all about NEVER paying full retail. In the case of Kbb, RO and the like, get enough during a sale to last you until the next sale. With the Weber and the Char Broil charcoal, this might have been a once in a lifetime thing, so grab​ all you could get and find room for it.

Grabbed all this even though I already had 10 bags of Kbb, 4 bags of RO and 4 bags of Stubbs.


To PJ, the reason you have 40 bags of charcoal is because you couldn't find the 25 or so additional bags at that one Target. I'm thinking a manager was keeping them for himself or something :-)

Demosthenes, what's your total at? You're probably 50-60 bags at this point. Gotta get to triple digits amigo

Yeah, probably between 50 and 60 bags right now. That might change if/when Lowe's and Home Depot start putting the Weber charcoal on clearance.

So now is to the time to donate some of that fuel to Operation BBQ Relief. I am not affiliated with them.

A noble and good idea, but it might not be feasible. I mean, how much would it cost to transport 1000lbs of charcoal to OBR ? Probably better to donate cash.

Heh, I'd have to seriously clean out my garage. Had to scramble to find room for what I have now.

Keep an eye out @ Lowes and Home Depot. Both have started lowering prices. IIRC, HD is down to $17.98 and Lowes is down to $14.98. Should drop further at both.
