Default Make your own lump charcoal?

After digging through two large bags of Cowboy lump to try and find large chunks, I am sufficiently frustrated to entertain making my own large chunk. If I could fire up, then hose down large Oak pieces, then suplement with the smaller bagged stuff.

I have liked the BGE lump the best so far, but the cost is a bit high. I'm also looking at having a pallet of the good stuff (per Naked Whiz) delivered to me.

Someone must do their own charcoal, though this is probably a much bigger pain in my pork butt than I'm thinking...

Unless something has changed, BGE lump is private label from Royal Oak. See if that gives you a price break.

Really? Others have favorably commented on Royal Oak lump. I just never heard BGE was a privale label of Royal Oak. Thanks for that insight.

Making burnt wood is easy...making charcoal, not so much. Doable, but it's not just striking a match.

Im thinking im not going to bother. Royal oak is available and that's probably the brand mentioned most often. Maybe I'll head over to naked whiz and check out the charcoal rankings. Maybe see about having a pallet shipped over.

The RO that WallyWorld sells ranks pretty high.

Making charcoal is done by buring wood in a low oxygen atmosphere. So unless you can do that plan on buying charcoal.

low oxygen atmosphere? how about a weber kettle with the vents barely cracked? I probably won't try it, it's alot easier to go pay the $6 for a bag of RO.
