If you look at Sam's Choice charcoal while it is burning hot you will notice a substance that is that of cat litter, in other words clay is used as a filler.

That does happen to some degree. I know of some guys (not us) there were looking to slap their brand on someone's existing lump product.

Good luck with that. I tried it last year and wasn't impressed. If it works for you then that is that!!!

Take a look at the Rancher at your local HD. Word is they will run it on sale again over the 4th of July on special again. $2.99 ROCKS!!!!

home depot - twin 11 pound bags - 11.00

I stand corrected - home depot - 2 x 22lbs bags 11.00 - that you can't beat.

I use Sams Choice in my WSM. A full ring lit with the Minion method lasts about 12-hours with a smoker temperature of about 250F.
