Have the same problem. But it's mostly been for firewood. I need to be more picky. Got too much firewood. I did get some pepper wood a couple months ago. I think I can smoke with that. Gonna give it a try. Anyone here ever try it?

Back on topic. Burning some kingsford blue right now that I got on sale. I'm glad I was able to take advantage of the sales.

I have everyone beat.

I drove by Home Depot on July 4th to buy some charcoal they had on sale. It was closed. I was too late. The next day I drove by after work and I picked up 10 bags.

I didn't own a charcoal grill. I've never even cooked on a charcoal grill. I sent that picture to my friends and they told me to use the shopping cart. :)

BTW, I now own a 2009 Performer Touch 'N Go that was a Craigslist find. <stealth gloat> I'll be posting about it this week.

I've fallen off the wagon again!

Even though I have @ 600 lbs of assorted charcoal, I couldn't help myself!
I had to pick up another 400 lbs from HD today.

They had 40 lbs two packs for $9.97

Maybe they will fit under the guest bed....

1st step - I admit I am powerless over the lure of two bag packs for $9.99

Thirteenth step - Cook a brisket!

I am hopeless.

I am a charcoal sale addict. I just ran out between the rain bands of tropical storm Isaac to get another 240# of kingsford from Lowes. Fortunately, they have a covered loading area.

I have to be the worst. I just gifted some charcoal to a friend for a big cook. I'm down to 240 lbs; if Walmart has the same sale they had Memorial Day, it's 360 lbs for $66. Can't wait.

No, it doesnt go bad. I would buy at least a few hundred pounds worth to get yourself through to the next sale (which is in late spring of 2013). Just make sure you keep it stored inside where its dry.

Hi, I need to check in with the group.

I've got about 400lb+ of charcoal, I have no more space to store any more in the garage...and I can't stop thinking about buying more kbb at the Memorial Day sales. I picked up cowboy lump at lowes this morning and it's sitting on the work bench. It makes no sense, but the desire and planning isn't going away. It's going to be a rough few weeks. This seems like it's bigger than me.

Not a charcoal addict but am trying to clean out the freezer for when briskets go on sale Memorial Day & July 4th. I get nervous if there's not at least one brisket in the freezer.
