It has been brought to my attention that Home Depot here in NC
has the 20lb Twin Packs on sale for $9.97....

The Bummer is, that it has a limit of Four to a Customer.....

I'll have to make 12 trips in and out of the store, and wear a disguise
each trip...:-P

I asked at the Home Depot here in San Antonio yesterday and I was told the sale would start this weekend also. Same price. Last year the limit was 2 so I may have to wear a disguise as well... :heh:

Last year, I grabbed one of those Lumber Trolleys and filled it up, whilst
giving the Associates watching me "The Eye"......Not a word was said...
Twice......

I filled up my car last year. No limit. I got 10 double packs. This year is a limit of 4. What's the point? I'll just keep going back till I get my fill. :cool:

Exactly...What's the point of the limit?

If I had a store and someone wanted to give me their money I'd certainly take it.

Something about.."A bird in hand..."

I'll be stocking up too.

It is called a "loss leader".

Stores sometimes sell items at cost to get more traffic in their store. They are thinking most people will come in and buy other items while they are getting the charcoal deal. If they sold all the charcoal to you they would lose money.

There was no limit on last year's Memorial Day sale at HD. So I really stocked up last year and still have 3 twin paks left.
I will go back again this weekend. I know they downsized the bags by a pound or two each this year.

I made my first stop of the season over the lunch hour while I was picking my truck up from the shop.

I also saw that Menards had Royal Oak on sale for $5 a bag. I may have to swing by there and get a few of those.

Now after being one of the Brethren for a couple of years - the MRS even SHOWED me the HDepot ad with the Kingsford sale. It is no wonder why I love that woman so much..............

Menards has had the "steakhouse" royal oak lump on sale for under 5 bucks for 8lb bag for the last couple of weeks, one fills up the basket on my UDS, I've bought 8 so far, plan on getting more next time I go there, the stuff burns decent enough and heats up fast without alot of "white smoke" time. Longest I ran one bag was for 7 hours and it was maybe half burned.

Do you guys prefer these over lump, or is it two different animals?
These good for slow and low smokes?

Last year I was able to buy all I wanted, no limits. Hope this year is the same, however I have no problem with buying the limit, putting it in the truck, and heading right back in the store to buy another limit, and repeat process...

for the record, you don't have to be active duty to get the military discount. Reserve, Guard, and honorably discharged (you just need proof of service) can score the extra ten percent off. Happy grilling.

Thanks N8. Picked up 320#'s yesterday. Walked in and started loading up cart when the manager asked why I needed so much charcoal. The wifey told him we did a lot of grilling and smoking and asked if we needed to make two trips, he said no, that was fine we could take all we wanted. He just wanted to be sure we weren't from ACE or True Value there to buy up their stock.
