Default buying charcoal (or lump) Online

Does anyone buy their fuel online or is it cheaper to just buy it in the store?

Since I don't have a local retailer that sells Wicked, I buy it on-line. But the shipping cost is a killer.

I regularly buy mine locally. I'm also fortunate to have a pecan tree in my yard that supports my smokin' habit.

Check out if you don't want shipping charges. You gotta put in your zip and see if they ship to a nearby store, and they carry a lot of stuff, including RO and various wood chunks. I just picked up my second doitbest order yesterday: a big 40 lb. bag of RO chef select briqs.

What Dave said.
The free ship to store is awesome, and I love the ROCS briquettes.

^^^what they said - doitbest is a great option if it's available. I ordered some charcoal online just to try out different types, but the shipping cost makes it not really worth it.
