I use Kingsford bb and RO lump.   I’ve been using B&B lump when Walmart has it.   Of course, I have my cache of Weber, which is my favorite.

B&B makes a great briquette too, if you can find it.  I only ever see it at Academy Sports.

Just left Home Depot. Embers bags for 1.90 each. I grabbed 10 I couldn’t resist. Never used it but hey for that price why not?

Kingsford is just so convenient and it not expensive.

I liked Stubbs but Royal Oak briqs is more econimical and yields great results. Lights quickly in the chimney and lasts easily during my long cooks. The left overs get used to start the next cook with my bigger better basket full of wood chunks and briqs.

Never heard of FOGO...? I have used Cowboy lump and my recommendation is, stay away from it. It is full of scrap lumber and is shit IMHO.
Multiple kettles and WSM's. I am not a collector, just a gatherer... and a sick bastard.

Is the Cowboy stuff being phased out?


Also.....has anybody tried the Expert Grill from WalMart?


They’re both available nearby and cheap.
I like cheap.
Especially if it’s good stuff and I can stock up.

I used some of the cheap embers stuff last weekend. Works well lit in about the same time my kbb does. No real notable difference between this and kbb in my opinion. Just an FYI

Cowboy briquettes are good, especially at that price.....it is actually the same charcoal as Stubbs in a Cowboy bag.  I am guessing that Expert is Royal Oak rebranded for Wal-Mart.

Have used regular Cowboy Lump and didn’t like it but then tried Cowboy Lump “Southern Style” which is mainly hickory and oak and what a difference.  I really like the southern style and have gone through about 4 bags with only good results. Unfortunately Costco only carried it in the summer time and it’s a little harder to find by me.
Just bought some FOGO on some high recommendations by some of the popular BBQ YouTubers and also the local BBQ Galore rep. It’s 100% oak and expensive but haven’t tried it yet.

For lump I use either Basques or Maple Leaf. Briquettes are Maple Leaf, Weber or Royal oak. Anything but Kingsford.

Used a bag of the Cowboy and all went well for me. Went back to Lowe’s so I could grab a few more 5$ bags of the Cowboy and saw this...



Moving out their last pallet. So I grabbed a few to stack up in the garage.
