Just used these yesterday for the first time ever (smoking ribs) and I was quite impressed. I am not fussing over 16# for $6 when nothing else is on sale.

I liked Stubbs because they burned hot and longer than any other briquette than an ever used. I emailed the Stubbs Co the other day and they recommended Cowboy (still not sure if these are the same Co but they do not appear to be)

I am going to try these this Weekend for a cookout
and will report back. This thread has turned into such a diverse and diverging directions that I will have to perhaps do a breakdown vid or HtH on some of these brands.

For now I'll just report some thoughts on the Bayou Brand as I've never heard of it but it was rec by one of the posters

I love Cowboy, but there is nowhere around me that is currently carrying it. I bought a ton of it last spring when it was on sale and am running low.

I'm guessing it won't be back in my area, anytime soon. I think I'm going to try the RO All Natural next.

Other than the packaging...

One briquette is slightly smaller than the other. All Natural is really quick to light and I find it burns a bit hotter than the Premium.

Honestly, I personally buy both (and I think you should get 1 of each and try them). I use the All Natural when I do steaks or for my comp cooks/comp practice because I like consistency. It's my favorite and the rumor is its exactly the same as Chef's Select. If you like Kingsford Professional, these put out similar heat but I think they last a little longer.

I use Premium (Red White Blue bags) for regular grilling/indirect applications and whenever I run the WSM at home. It's the best value in briquettes....period. Cheaper than KBB and it smells better. In the summer I use a bunch of it. 1/2-2/3 of a fully lit chimney in my SNSXL and I cook dinner on the Weber 26 day-in, day-out.

Yes. The least expensive source I know of is via True Value, using a $10 off of $75 coupon (google one), and free ship-to-store.

https://www.truevalue.com/premium-ch...quettes-20-lbs

$14.99/20# bag

14.99 x 6= 89.94 - 10 = 79.94 / 6 = $13.32/bag

Still too pricey for my (cheap) taste.

Weber is the GOAT briquette but they are $20/#20 unless you catch a sale.

I was getting Stubbs while Cowboy was sitting there but once Stubbs stopped I went to RO. Perhaps your local Home Depot?
