Default Hardwood Lump Charcoal Comparison???

I am interested in what others use in Hardwood Lump Charcoal. I have only been able to get Cowboy brand, but just saw that Lowes is selling Stubbs Hardwood Lump. Has anyone used that???

I have heard that Stubbs is very good, but have not tried it myself. I have been buying Frontier from Sam's Club. Probably not the best out there, but I can get a 40 lb bag for ~ $14.00. Hard to beat that price.

Cowboy Lump is pretty low grade - I'd look for something like Royal Oak at Walmart. Visit The Naked Whiz website for more reviews on charcoal.

My Sam's was carrying Frontier, but now they have gone back to carrying the Best of the West Mesquite lump. Same size, same price different product.

The Naked Whiz site which you have been pointed to is also listed in the "ROADMAP" sticky at the top of this forum. Lots of other good stuff there as well.

I'll second what OakPit said about Cowboy and Royal Oak.

I use the red Royal Oak bags from Walmart as well. I also mix that in with Stubs charcoal from Lowes. I find the royal burns to quick/hot in the kettle.

Royal Oak lump is the best bang for the buck up here. As the mid-west starts to thaw out you should see more variety on the shelves.

pretty sure the Frontier at Sams is the US made stuff which is suppose to be better than its South American counterpart
I picked up a bag a few weeks ago and have been pretty happy with it so far..use Royal Oak as well

If you can get up to Chicago, go to Berger Brothers....cherry avenue.
Berger Brother's Charcoal 1176 N Cherry Ave Chicago, IL 6062 312-642-4238
Stock up on it...great prices.

I buy the Nature-Glo lump AND briquettes....both very low ash and steady burn.

+1 on the red bag Royal Oak from Wal Mart. The bag I used last night had logs that were so big I had to break them to fit them in my basket.

If there are Do It Best hardware stores near you then you can order RO lump direct to the store with no shipping cost.

The Frontier charcoal at Sam's was not the US made stuff, but was different from the South American made. Pretty sure my bag said product of Mexico, but our local store only carries the best of the west mesquite now. :(
