KBB in the Assassin and on the kettle.

It's readily available, cooks consistently, and it works.

I add my own smoke with chips / chunks.

Since I ran out of the Labor Day Sale KBB, I have been getting Royal Oak Premium Hardwood briquettes at Wally world. $8 for a 16 lb. bag. I REALLY like it. Burns clean, hot and long.

Lowe's carries Royal Oak Classic briqs, and they are on sale right now for $3.99 for a 15.4 lb bag. I like these a lot for the price.

Weber is hands down the best, sadly it’s nowhere around here anymore.

I get Royal Oak lump at Walmart always at a good price. The stores around here sell the Made in USA lump. I've heard their imported lump isn't as good.

My God
Who knew I would get this many responses????!!!!

I did like Stubbs......
A LOT.
It burned hot and was very efficient but came to the party late since I only was able to sequester a few bags before they stopped distributing them (Cowboy and Stubbs are different Co)

Informally it seems that B&B is the most popular choice but.....
having a bit of a time finding briquettes. B&B has a bunch of Lump styles but not finding the briquettes I'm looking for.

Here is another thread w/a robust discussion about Cowboy which is more LUMP coal (many of the folks on the above thread are stronger for Royal Oak (lump)

I DO mix briquettes and lump at times but I find that I have better temp control with the briquettes when I do smoke (Minion Meth) so that's why I am trying to get a reliable source of briquette that isn't mostly filler (Kingsford) and has me cleaning mounds of ash out of my grill twice a month.

Keep the responses coming......

My apologies. I meant Royal Oak All Natural. That is what you get by relying on an alcohol diminished brain.

KBB here too. Scads of cooks on it. Once it burns down it's really good and cheap.
