Default Opinion on Royal Oak Premium

I'm almost out of KB :( (it was supposed to last all winter) ...Dang addiction!

I buy RO lump but i was gonna pick up some RO bricks..18 lb for about 6 bucks. You'all like it better then KB? Any better attributes like flavor, last longer or burn hotter? Gracias

Haven't ever used them personally, but a quick scan around the web would seem to indicate that the R.O. briquettes are overall pretty similar to K.B. in heat production, ash, burn time, and overall "behavior." A couple of posters complained about an "off flavor" from the R.O. briqs - presumably from the binders - but I'm sure that you can find just as many detractors who complain about the "off flavors" imparted by K.B.

Here's a link to a discussion on another forum that includes some direct comparison: http://tvwbb.com/archive/index.php/t-36162.html

Incidentally, if Kingsford Blue is your "go to" for long cooks, it's probably worth mentioning that several of my local big-box stores (particularly Wal-Mart and Lowes) still have oodles of it hanging around in the "less popular/non-seasonal" aisles - probably for 'cue addicts like us, and those intending to smoke turkey and/or ham for the Holidays. Picked up a 2x20 lb pack the other day for $13.95

Good luck with your charcoal experimentation and winter cooks!

Thanks jf...I'm sure peoples off flavor many times is their own imagination or bad smoke.

I have used the Royal Oak product many times. It is quite good. I prefer Kingsford Blue, just slightly. I feel KBB is a little more consistent and a little more dense which I think gives it a little edge in burn time. That being said, if Royal Oak is on a good sale, I don't hesitate to use it.
