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.

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......
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.
