Default Wicked good charcoal

Hey all,

I saw this site, http://www.wickedgoodcharcoal.com/ and another site that did a test, http://www.nakedwhiz.com/lumpdatabase/lumpbag25.htm so I decided I would try it also. Got it in yesterday, cooked some pork chops on the grill, will do some steaks tonight. Tomorrow I plan on doing ribs and lamb in the 'Dera. I've got some pictures so I'll do up a report on it.

Also if you guys are looking for some input on different types of charcoal check out this place, http://www.nakedwhiz.com/lumpdata.htm

Hope this hepls some of ya. So far I really like this stuff, we'll see how it does smoking.

Yea but for as long as it lasts the price makes up for it. Check out the link where they testes it. I have run 2 tests so far. Last night I threw 2 chunks in about the size of the Kingsford I was using. After I was done and choked the fire down to keep the leftover coals, the Kingsford was basically gone. The Wicked was only burned on the bottom.

Tonight I grilled steaks. Used half of what I would with the Kingsford and maybe half of it burned up vice all of the Kingsford. I'll see what is left after cooldown in the morning. Next test is tomorrow. 9 slabs of bb's, 2 slabs of beef ribs, 2 chunks of boneless leg of lamb.

Got some pictures, I'll try to get them posted soon.

You did this in the Bandera? Mine's got so many leaks, I find charcoal still glowing in the morning.
