Deal on Expert Grill Charcoal

Post by Smokin Mike »

I was at the Walmart Grocery and noticed a pallet of their store brand charcoal on sale. It was $5.96 for a 16 pound bag. I used some and was impressed by the burn time. I went back and picked up another 10 bags.

Note: Edited a bunch of times to get the picture orientation correct. :roll:

Hard to beat that price! I don't use briquets but those who do should grab some. :D

I am a fan of Royal Oak Chefs Select charcoal. I learned a lot about charcoal while Royal Oak was sponsoring my team and the all natural briquettes are hard to beat. B&B charcoal is my next go to and their Char logs are awesome as well as their lump.

I typically use lump (B&B, Fromtier, Western) and then shift to mostly wood as the cook progresses. I used to use Stubb's natural briquets, but they have disappeared from Lowes around here.

I wish I could tell you. Our Kroger stores went bye bye when they shut down and Harris Teeter moved in. I believe Kroger owns HT or they swapped stores or some other business arrangement. Anyway, no Brazillion hardwood in my local Harris Teeter that I can see.
