I've been using Grove Lump coal. It's not to shabby. I was thinking about trying RO though. Only cause it's a little cheaper and easier to find.

Wicked Good, but I have two bags of Humphrey's to try in a couple of weeks. So I may change my mind. Got it from a fine Brethren brother, Steve at the BBQ Store in Hampstead, MD.

I use Kingsford and Royal Oak depending on what I am doing. I mix the two in the UDS.

Depends on the vessel, and what I am cooking. If I go briquettes in the kettle, it is K. And if it is the BGE, I use RO for short cooks, and Wicked Good for longer cooks.
