Default How much charcoal do you keep on hand?

Just curious. How much charcoal everyone typically keeps on hand.

Currently I have about 90lbs but I just bought a few bags.

I typically get WG by the pallet, 30 bags x 22# each = 660#. Down to three bags of Weekend Warrior and a few assorted bags of mongrel lump. Time for a re-order!

Lessee, got a bag of Kingsford Comp, half a bag of Kroger lump and, um...that's it.





















I pretty much buy as I need so sales don't really tempt me.
