Can anyone give me a review on them? Much better than Kingsford?

I tried them once and felt they burned faster, yet still produced a fair amount of ash. Only tried them that one time.

It is much better than the Cowboy brand which is the only other reasonably priced charcoal I have found. IMO it burns cleaner and much longer. The butcher sells 5# bags of hardwood from S. America that is quite a bit better, but it is 4x as much.

Would you say its better than Kingsford?

I like the RO Lump, just have no idea of how the briquettes burn.

I'm looking for briquettes that are long burning and produce less ash than kingsford. I dont really care if it doesnt burn as hot.

I think it burns more consistently and without any unusual odor than similarly priced brickettes. I prefer it to KF blue. I have yet to compare it to Stubbs though as I've heard good things there. I got two bags of each in the garage waiting for the next family get together...

I heard once that the RO briqs are the same as the Wally briqs and had no reason to dispute it as they both burned the same to me.

YMMV, however the wally briqs are very good for the price.

I burn RO pretty much all the time. I've seen about the same ash...but a different kind. Has to do with their filler. In the spring here in the Midwest Menards usually runs some good pricing so I buy a pallet.

I would recommend nature's grilling products charcoal. Starts fast, burns hot and long and leaves a small amount of ash. Plus they're all natural, no chemical fillers or binders. www.naturesgrilling.com

I use RO briquettes all the time. I love them. Cant beat the price. 18#'s for $6.00. If I could find the RO lump in my area, I would use it. I also use Lazarri Lump. But, when I am using briquettes, usually it is all I use in my drum, I use RO.

This product is all natural and will have less ash that the regular briquets. The size of Chef Select briquets is larger that the regular. RO has made this product for years and sells it through food service. This type of product is what K is doing with the Comp product they are selling now.
This is ground up lump with all natural binders. They do not add coal and other fillers and therefore you get less ash.
I use it all the time and highly reccomend it.

Thanks for the responses.

That RO chef's select sounds perfect for what I'm looking for. Anyone know where in L.A. or O.C. I can get it??
