Talking Rancher Charcoal coming to Trader Joe's

Hi folks,

I was just curious how much it would be for a pallet of Rancher shipped here to SOCAL. I was going to ask some SOCAL bros to chip in, if interested in the product. Before I could get my inquiry out good, the guy in customer service said it will be in Trader Joe's around the March 25th and 26th. Bags will be around $6ish he said.

So stay tuned Rancher lovers, we are going to be in Rancher heaven again despite the increase.

I heard this on the BBQ Central Hour. Awesome, though TJ's does have a bit higher price than say Lowes or HD.

But I can't wait to try this stuff.

What do you guys think of the cowboy lump charcoal. I have found it at Lowes and HD. Have not tried any others... Have not found any others. I want to try the Royal lump charcoal.

I like the cowboy lump. But recently found some ROYAL OAK STEAK HOUSE LUMP and found it to be just as good , maybe just a bit better, at the same $

Cowboy is okay in a pinch. However, I try not to find myself in a pinch due to the s/crap that is in cowboy.

Don't waste a dime on cowboy charcoal - it's total crap. It burns way too fast and is made from scrap. Also mostly small pieces...Bad stuff.

G's,

I am not sure. I assumed it was the same old bags. However, you know what happens when we assume.

I will call them again tomorrow to confirm.

I'll bet you anything the Rancher will be in smaller bags and the price will reflect that. Trader Joes is great-but they don't have the shelf space to stock a pallet of 20lb bags of charcoal in any of the stores I've been to. And it'll probably be a "seasonal" item too!
I'd boycott farkin' Rancher and support Cowboy Charcoal and the "STUBB'S Natural briqs!! JMHO

You'd support Cowboy over Rancher

I'll bite, why?

I wonder if we will see this on the east coast. I loved Rancher and would definitely stock up if it was available.
