Default Best Lump and Best Briquette

Tried to bump a thread but it was too old.

Like the title says; what do you think and why?

Last thing on the other thread someone asked how Trader Joe's stacked up against Stubb's.

I have used both the Trader Joes (made by Rancher) and Stubbs and they are both about the same. I use Trader Joes all the time since there is a store on the way home from work and its easy to get it there and I always pick up some other stuff there too

But with winter coming its going to disappear in the store until spring

Both are High quality briqs in my opinion

I like the Trader Joe's/Rancher briqs, as well as Royal Oak briqs.

I love WG and B&B lump, but I don't think I can get those around where I live anymore, so I'm back to buying RO lump, which I like as well.

What do you all think about the lump briquettes vs standard? Also, now that they make lump briquettes, is the time and burn uniform since they are the same size? This seemed to be a reason why smokers seemed to prefer briquettes vs. lump.

I guess I may have been confused but I thought that was what Wicked Good Charcoal was.

Very cool. I just saw a guy from Australia do the same thing on you tube right before I saw your post. Awesome. I suppose it would be easy enough to get fairly similar sized chunks. Time consuming but may work out ok.

For me, it comes down to what is available locally. Currently I have Wal Mart, Lowes, and Home Depot to choose from. Wal Mart carried Royal Oak lump and it seems great for lump. For briquettes I like the Stubb's that is readily available at Lowes. I am keeping an eye out for Royal Oak briquettes, but haven't seen them. Supposedly a Menards is moving into this area and might offer me a few more choices. I do stock up on KBB when it goes on sale and use it on less important cooks. You just can't beat it for $.25 a pound!
