Default stubbs Natural Briquettes, Go or No ?

Hi All,

Burned through a bunch of KB with the new WSM, going to be cooking some mo stuff this week and weekend. While I think it's consistent it kinda has a funky smell when it lights up.

I usually use Royal Oak in my acorn but I cant find it anywhere are here so I"m looking for something to stock up on for the winter before everything is gone.

Projects will be Brisket low and slow, Ribs low and slow whole Turkeys

Thanks, you guys have been a great help in cutting down the learning curve, the perfect brisket is still haunting me !

Go, now! I had run through most of the other before settling on Stumps. I'm making my own lump now, but I still keep a few bags of Stumps around, just in case.

I really like using Stubbs in my large WSM - it smells sweet when it burns because there's nothing but compressed hardwood charcoal in it. No fillers, binders, coal, etc.

AND - it burns very evenly. No sudden jumps in temperature.

Definitely worth your time and trouble.

stubbs is all I use for all smoking since I started (only about 6 months ago) and it burns the cleanest, longest, and most consistently for me. I tried RO lump several times for smoking and didn't like the consistency at all - burned too fast and too irregular for my needs. HOWEVER, I do only use RO lump for grilling.

Using Stubbs now and I like it. What you guys think of the royal oak chef select briquettes? Priced about the same per pound as Stubbs.
