GFS Briquettes
« on: July 28, 2020, 06:05:38 AM »
I was in my local GFS (Gordon Food Service) buying meat the other day and I was checking out their charcoal.  Iíve read their lump and briquettes are rebranded royal Oak.  The lump Iíve used.  Itís nothing special.   The briquettes look like Royal Oak Chef Select, which I can only find at do it best hardware.   Theyíre supposed to be excellent.  They are the big ridge design, 30% larger than normal briquettes.  The 20 lb bag is $10.  In thinking about trying some.  Has anyone tried the GFS briquettes?  Are they the same as the RO chef Select?

Iíve never knowingly used select but I did use the gfs briquettes. Looked like normal ro ridge. It wouldnít light well and barely stayed burning.

Maybe I just got a bad batch but I wonít buy them again.

Nope.  No membership.  They have pork beef and chicken.   They have choice packer briskets and pork butts at grate prices.  Whole pork loins, spare ribs, ribeye and strip loin whole primals.   All at excellent prices.
