I blame each and every one of you. :heh: I used to be just fine with a few bags. Ro lump, k-comp, weber, heb, stubbs. It'll take me years to use it all. I'd ask for help but all you would do is encourage my bad behavior. You guys and gals are the worst. :pound:

Haha, I've actually been looking at storage options for all the charcoal and pellets I've bought lately. She's not really pleased with all the spaces it's taking up in the garage. I saw a nice outdoor storage box thingie at the store, just not sure if they would be big enough!

When I joined this site I had a propane grill and a pellet smoker.

Now I have two smokers, two grills, 13 bags of charcoal, a wireless thermometer, a thermopop, an infrared thermometer, a granton blade knife, 6-17 inch metal skewers, a Raichlen rib rack, a roll of pink butcher paper, a foodsaver, a cabinet full of rubs and spices, and 2lbs of cure #1. My freezer has 5 pork butts, 4 slabs of spares, a Prime packer, packs of chicken quarters, a tri-tip, a top round, wings and boneless breasts, 8 lbs of homemade bacon...and I just smoked 5lbs of jerky today.


Every day a new package from Amazon shows up and my wife says..'What BBQ item did you buy today?'

Yeah...we've all got that problem.

Wish I had the storage space y'all have but won't park a car outside to have a stockpile of charcoal. Most have ever had was four bags and am down to one and a half. Guess will add charcoal to the shopping list. Living in the 'burbs involves a weekly run to Home Depot or Lowe's so no biggie grabbing a bag as needed.

Do have a four foot long woodrack full of oak and and a dwindling pile of pecan wood.

Do have a six briskets in the freezer, a fridge full of various beers and several bottles of bourbon.

I think I'm more inclined to hoard wood than I am charcoal now. You can't just run down to the hardware store and buy more well seasoned, dry wood in a pinch like you can charcoal.
Having fought running a fire using too green wood, I don't want to find myself in that scenario again.

But I also get taking advantage of charcoal sales when it's like 25 cents a pound, too.

Nicely put. As if I wasn't pushing marital limits already, thinking about getting a second wood rack so I can have the chance to season 6-12 months as Franklin does

That's a very easy answer. If it has rained on your wood pile for several days, just use up some of that charcoal. No problem. You could be like some folks that I read about, "my power went off" or better yet, "my heating element went out". Those are the folks that are really in bad shape.

If you use a good amount of charcoal, it's all about NEVER paying full retail. In the case of Kbb, RO and the like, get enough during a sale to last you until the next sale. With the Weber and the Char Broil charcoal, this might have been a once in a lifetime thing, so grab​ all you could get and find room for it.

Grabbed all this even though I already had 10 bags of Kbb, 4 bags of RO and 4 bags of Stubbs.


To PJ, the reason you have 40 bags of charcoal is because you couldn't find the 25 or so additional bags at that one Target. I'm thinking a manager was keeping them for himself or something :-)

Yeah, probably between 50 and 60 bags right now. That might change if/when Lowe's and Home Depot start putting the Weber charcoal on clearance.

A noble and good idea, but it might not be feasible. I mean, how much would it cost to transport 1000lbs of charcoal to OBR ? Probably better to donate cash.

Keep an eye out @ Lowes and Home Depot. Both have started lowering prices. IIRC, HD is down to $17.98 and Lowes is down to $14.98. Should drop further at both.

Thanks, just a thought. I read somewhere recently someone had donated a large batch of charcoal to them. They do have volunteers in many states. Either way they can use the help.

If this is a club with a 40 bag requirement, I just made the club!

There was a marketplace sale from a local person moving who just had ordered a skid of Humphrey's Professional Grade 100% charcoal briquettes. She had twenty 18lb bags left. I offered $75 and got them. Works out to $3.75 a bag.

Never used this, but supposed to be good stuff right out West from me in PA.

Can't wait to try it!

40 is impressive! I've been at mid 30's with Ozark Oak lump 10lb bags. More recently had 20 - 20lb bags of Rockwood lump. I've never once used my home oven. I honestly wouldn't even know how to use it. I'll take lump over an oven any day!
