Seriously, maybe Wally's pushed RO to change the formula, cause I just haven't had any issues with the 2 bags I bought recently to try, other than huge amounts of ash generated by the briquettes. I used them in a 6 hour cook of some ribs a few weeks ago and they got up to temp and burned as long as the last bag of Kingsford I used. So I guess I'll call my experiment a better experience than what some have had. I go back and forth between this and RO Lump, because the Lump just sparks like a fireworks show, but the Sam's Choice isn't any worse than any other briquette IMO....

I like the sparks. A little extra entertainment.

Well we better get used to limited choices in charcoal briquettes! Fark Rancher! It was a flash in the pan! Or else some other chain would be carrying it, I've got @20 bags left and doubt (never say never) if I'd buy anymore. But when I take a look in the Garden section of the 2 Wal-Marts nearby, they have pallets STACKED full of Sam's Choice, that is somewhat of an indicator of what we have to look forward too. Not too long ago I was hearing rumors of Royal Oak going out of business!

I may get blasted on here but here it goes. You have another choice other than Kingsford, Royal Oak, Rancher. It is called Wicked Good Charcoal. The Briquettes are second to none. Not a sales pitch just cold hard fact. Check out your local dealer and a least try a bag, it will sell itself. Just my humble opinion.

I'm a recent convert to WGC. Years ago I used Canadian Maple Leaf but that dried up around these parts so I've been using Kingsford. I used WGC last weekend in a WSM and got an 18 hour clean burn on 11 lbs. The natural binders mean you can throw it on the fire raw and there is virtually no waste (dust, chips, chunks, etc.) in the bag when done. It's as good as the Maple Leaf and in the end, cost little more than Kingsford.

According to the web site, these folks carry WGC and are about 45 miles from you.

I would like to try the Wicked Good charcoal, but they do not have a dealer in Texas. Anyone order this stuff online reasonably priced? Their website wants $40 shipping for 2 11# bags of briqs and 2 11# bags of lump. Im not cheap, but dayum thats $12 more than the coal itself. Im mainly interested in the briq's.

I've used the Wicked Good Briqs in my clay Kamado for grilling, used about 25 and fire them up with the weed burner. They burn hot and clean and when I'm done grilling I shut all the vents down and smother them, the next time I grill I throw a few new briqs on and fire it again. Hardly any ash but $$pendy!! The Weekend Warrior Lump lasts me forever in the BGE! Very Good stuff!
