Bought a bag for 4.99 just to try. If it's going to go on sale for the 4th I would look for it to happen today or tomorrow.

I wanted to pick some up but my HD didn't have any. Don't know if they were out or didn't carry it. Trying to find someone to help you there is like sqeezing blood from a turnip.

talked to the store manager, he said they usually have a flyer just for the 4th weekend, that specializes in "grilling", should come out in either the sat or sun. paper? at least you guys got, the Hawaii shipment didn't come in until after Memorial day, and they didn't have to honor the 2.99 price!

I did not like my experience with Rancher Charcoal. Burns okay, but you get alot of white ash which coats everything badley. Also 75% of the briquettes crumble after only one burn in my Weber Kettle.

I usually work with Kingsford and can get 75% of the briquettes to make a second burn. I much prefer Kingsford, is a greatly superior product.

I noticed the ash too. I'll only be using at home mixed in with lump on long cooks where I don't have to open the doors which stur up the ash.

Hum.... Thus far I've had pretty good results with Rancher. I've found it to burn a bit hotter than Kingsford and maybe not as long, but with a lot less ash. I have not experienced any floating ash getting on the food. It also doesn't have the ammonia smell when lighting like Kingsford.

When Kingsford changed to the new faster lighting stuff, I found a great deal on Royal Oak Charcoal and have been using that, also with great results. Although there is quite a bit of ash build up with the RO.

I've got a lot of Rancher left to burn, I hope I my experience with the first 7 bags ain't a fluke!

I have been thru about 6 bags of Rancher not counting what we used at the Bash and at BBS' house. I haven't experienced the flying ash either. Is that in your Bandera or just the kettle?

I've checked around the Tulsa area, and most of the Home Depots are out of Rancher. They tell me that it was a one-time shipment arranged by the buyer at the head office.

Today I talked to a Mr Krause at the Original Charcoal Company, and he verified that the Home Depot thing was a one-time shot. Evidently Kingsford makes lots of concessions for HD.

Anyone up for a barrage of e-mail to HD asking them to carry Original Rancher?

I too bought over 30 bags of it when it was on sale for $2.99. My local HD still has it in stock for $4.99. Looks like they have a lot more than they did...

I hope they continue to stock it!
