Default best lump for canucks

I am going to be using lump for my wsm and I am looking for input on what other Canadians use. I live close to the border so I can go and order from the US, but would like to use a great quality Canadian brand.

I see one called maple leaf lump. Is that any good??

I may order the Royal Oak chef's select from the US that is a briquette but 100% hardwood.

Any input??

Where abouts are you located in Ontario?

http://www.bbqs.com/charcoal-room-c-135.html Maple Leaf or Dragons Breath are pretty awesome.

You can also get Royal Oak at Canadian Tire or Superstore, they just had a great sale.

I also live close to the border and stock up in America at every major sale.

This stuff!^^ Our Costco in Sudbury carries the sugar maple. I buy a dozen bags at a time. I have also used the Dragon's Breath, which is a Hickory lump, but at Ontario Gas BBQ it's 23 bucks a bag! I pay 9ish for the Costco stuff.

I second what Diva Q says, Basque lump charcoal at Costco @ $12 a 17 lb bag cannot be beat. My shed is full. You have to pick it up soon as they will only have it in stock till the end of August. At least that's what happened last year. Good hunting.

Maple Leaf lump kicks ass!

I'd use it all the time if I could get it here.

Maybe you mean 18.99 for 8kg? I say this because Rona sells 8kg or 17.6 pounds for 18.99:

http://www.rona.ca/en/charcoal-pieces

I have used Maple Leaf as well as the stuff Costco sells and I gotta say I did not really like them as much as Royal Oak Blue Bag Lump. Cost is not the issue it is heat level, taste and ease of lighting - Royal Oak wins on all 3. The fact that it sells for less is a bonus - Canadian Tire sells 17 some odd pounds for 14.99 regular price. The only thing I have used that is better than Royal Oak Lump is Nature's Grilling Harwood Lump (Canadian Tire but it is expensive at 6.99 for 8 pounds I think it is) or Big Green Egg Lump which is 29.99 for 20 pounds and made by the folks at Royal Oak. Walmart up here sells Nature's Grilling stuff for a more reasonable price than Canadian Tire but they do not sell the regular "Harwood Lump" only the Mesquite Lump....it is 7.99 for 10 pounds and worth it for steak. I keep some around at all times. Walmart also carries Nature's Grilling Briquettes at 7.99 for 16 pounds - a great product if you use briquettes....much better than other brands.

I use the Basques All Natural Lump from Costco and find it good, it gets very hot. I also used the Royal Oak lump when I run out of Basques.
