Hottest briquettes?
« on: July 16, 2019, 06:42:00 AM »
Iíve always cooked on Weber coals but lately, theyíre almost impossible to find in Charlotte. Iíve been using KBB but they donít get nearly as hot. Gonna do a big fillet (steak) cook next weekend at the beach with the boys and looking for suggestions on the hottest burning coals out there. Someone told my wife there is a big green egg brand of coals that a lot of people like?  Any suggestions?

I don't use them anymore, but Kingsford Professional seems to get "hotter" than any briquette I've tried. They burn up too quickly for my liking, but if you're searing a few steaks its fine.

I freaking love k pro. I get them at Costco. They burn up faster than most but still last a good long while. I ran 6-7 hours on one load in the smokenator on the 26 at 300ish degrees. They light faster burn hotter burn faster.

Iíve been using Royal Oak All Natural from Walmart. Similar price and performance to K Pro but Iíve found the RO AN seems to last longer.

I agree with you! Weber briquettes are not possible to find them anymore! Does anyone know what happen with them? Weber doesn't make them anymore?

I just bought a 20# bag of Weber at a local supermarket two days ago for $7.99 (regular price). Could not believe the bargain.

I stole a bag of Kingsford, hottest briquettes I have ever had
Seeking a Black Sequoia I know I know, I'd settle for just the tabbed no leg grill
