Default Humphrey's Lump

I just wanted to thank LMAJ once again for letting me know about this stuff, and where I could get it. I can grab 10, 20 or 40 lb bags right down the street from my house.

I love Wicked Good but it's expensive and for the money you really can't beat the Humphrey's. I usually buy the 20 lb bags and I think they're like $12. They only had the 10 lb bags left last time I was there, she told me the new shipment would be coming in soon.

This is what I want to see when I open a bag of lump. 10lb bag btw.



I took out those top few pieces and dumped the rest in a box. Nice size pieces throughout.



and here's the shake left in the bottom of the bag. Not much.



So thanks again LM, and if anyone can get their hands on some Humphrey's, I say go for it.

Jason,

How does it compare to RO? I used to use kroger lump until I found RO. To me, it burns unbelievably clean, but I'm looking for something that comes in bigger bags. I can only get RO around here in 8 lb. bags.

Pottstown Roller Mills. It's been a couple weeks since I've been there, you may want to call first just to make sure they still have some left. Like I said they were down to 10lb bags last time I was there. She didn't say exactly when the new shipment was coming in, just that it would be soon.

Head and shoulders above RO in my opinion. The last few bags of RO I got were absolute garbage. It still sparks a little bit when I hit it with the torch but nothing like the fireworks show with RO. If you can find it, go for it, I don't think you'll be disappointed.

last bag of RO I bought was pretty sad.

Small pieces. Not much dust in the bottom so I dont think it was from it breaking up from rough handling.

My Kroger lump in smaller bags was better than that.

I order Wicked Good from Ace, and mix it with this small stuff

Hey! Speak of the devil, I was just talking about you in my other thread.

Is firecraft a brick and mortar store? Where's it located? I know you were back and forth between PA and NY. I'd love to check out the briquettes, I'll have to ask my place if they have them, I never thought to do that. I see firecraft has free shipping over $99 too.

Glad that's working out for you Jason. I have noticed the last few bags we cracked open had some really good sized pieces and very little small pieces.

The folks at the roller mill are great - it's about time we make our yearly trip to stock up!

I use Humphrey lump in my offset charcoal basket and the UDS. I get it from a Brethren at the BBQ Equipment Store. Really great price and service.

However, for some reason I just can't get it burn slowly in my Backwoods. I have even tried a maze and it seems to all light up at once. It still burns long, but I find KB to be best in the BWS.

Not a fan of lump in the BWS for long burn times I have always used briquettes.
