I've heard of coconut charcoal, but never seen it. How is the smoke? Light? Coconutty? If that's a word.

Earlier last year, they had some at our local Home Depot on sale. I bought 4 bags, but have to say I was not terribly impressed. The briguets broke quite easily in the bag, and while they do burn hotter than regular briqs, they also make a ton of ash. The updside is the odor is virtually undetectable, and preferable to KB.

I still prefer hardwood briquets to the coshell, but that's just me.

Curious how others find them after trying a few cooks...

that's odd as the ones I have used were hard as bricks. I used them and then reused the left overs again. the smell is almost non existant though you just might get a hint of coconut. my wife is very sensitive to charcoal smells and she loves the stuff. thus my using it when cooking something for her.
the best is to just try a bag and make yer own decisions.
as I said, I think they work like gangbusters in the portables.

I just picked up two bags on the way home from work at the Pacoima Lowes. This means we're getting them at SoCal Lowes locations. :mrgreen:

Will test it this weekend.

I checked out 2 bLowe's (Lynnwood & S. Everett, WA) on the way home from work and spoke to the managers when I didn't see any and both claimed it wasn't an item they were planning to stock.

That sucks!

So, in mourning I fired my SJS up with the remnants of my last bag of Coshell and rotis'd some sirloin cap strips....

Good stuff!

I just picked up a bag tonight to try. Had never seen or heard of it but the price was under $10 so I wanna try it out.

I haven't used this particular brand, but I have tried Charcos and those farkers burn hot! If this stuff is like that stuff I'm in!

Am I wrong to assume that this stuff will be incredibly efficient in a UDS?

Thanks for the tip - I'm going to check my local Lowes. Have you used them yet? What is your impression vs. lump or kbb?
