Default Holy Charcoal!

So over the years I have bought hundreds and hundreds of pounds of mesquite lump charcoal. Always from the same manufacturer. And I have never gotten anything like this before. The truck dropped off three 40#, bags of lump and in one of them there was this. A 36# Stump! And 4 other small sticks

So, split and into the stick burner it went.

The other bags were pretty normal 20 or so sticks and small baseball sized chunks. All in all it was pretty funny! I had no complaints, but thought it would be fun to share.

Makes me wonder, I make my own lump. I'll have to try larger pieces.

Thanks for posting this.

What's the name of that charcoal? I'm having a hard time finding anything worthwhile locally... Do you run the mesquite w/anything else?

Three Rivers! Wow! I had no idea there was another brethren so close by.


Lazzari. I have been buying it for years, and it never disappoints. They sell it in smaller bags at some grocery stores but the best place near hear I have found for the 40# bags is JD food in Fresno. $15.00 they are a food service company but they do sell to private parties. Where I work we get deliveries from JD so it's super easy for me. And yes, I run some hickory with my mesquite as well. That's sort of my S.O.P

You might get a pretty long burn from that.

Wow! That's bigger than most trees in my area.
Did you split it to see if it was charred inside?
Thanks for the post Josh!
