Default Collecting briqs

Ok I consider myself a bit of a lump snob.

But now I have an interest in a good natural briq for my coal base in my offset since the lump burns pretty fast...

Yesterday, I bought my first bag of Stubbs, thought I would give it a try this weekend

Then today I go to Trader Joes after work to pick up some fish for the grill for dinner, what do I see???

A brand new pallet of their own briqs, which I have never tried either, the Trader Joes is brand new in my area.

So a bag of that jumped in my shopping cart too

Oh then I stopped at Gordons Foods and picked up a nice little brisket, the briqs will need someone to play with this weekend

Nice! I've heard good things about the TJ brand briqs. Never actually used them though...

I'm a Stubbs guy myself so I'm biased towards those. I think you'll like 'em.

That's why I use natural briqs.

If you have a DoIt Best hardware store nearby, you can order 40 lb bags of Royal Oak Chefs Select natural briqs and ship to store for free. Great charcoal.

In STL Trader Joe brix from Rancher are about the only 100% natural brix that are normally priced less than 50 cents per pound, which is real nice
