Preferred charcoal?

Ive thought of using lump….but never have. I’ve almost always used kingsford. Or in a pinch any generic briquette. Might have to test the waters of lump soon.

Lump is great for taste and burn. Seriously- try it. Smells and tastes great.

Lump is good for hot & fast burns, like when grilling steaks.
Try it, you might just like it!

I'm down to my final bags of Weber charcoal and I think it is the best all around briquettes I have used to this point. I have some B&B that is close but pricey compared to the $2.10 a bag during the great Weber briquette closeout.

I still have 2 or 3 bags of Coshell coconut shell briquettes that I also bought a huge amount on closeout that is awesome for hot and fast cooks. Nothing compares to it. A little slower to start but can be reused several times burns long and HOT!!!

@dwnthehatch

I think I still have one bag of Weber left, with multiple bags of B&B comp oak (orange bag) and char logs around. Neighbor gave me a bag of JD briqs (pillows) have not tried them yet.

Like you I play around with coconut charcoal quite a bit. I have a couple of bags of coshell around. Here is a good one price per pound when Amazon has it on sale Napoleon in the 23# box. Not as quite as good as Coshell in my opinion nor better than who ever produced the stuff that Richard Johnson sold on the old "K" site.

My favorites for lump so far are B&B hardwood with oak ($15/20#@AcademySports), Basques Sugar Maple ($25/18#@Ace), BGE All Natural Hickory and Oak ($25/20#@Ace)
At $15 for a 20# bag, B&B is my go to.

For briquettes, I’ve come full circle and I like Kingsford Original, starts fast, burns long enough and hot, smells decent. I have not tried their hardwood or pro yet.
Happiness is found under the lid of a charcoal grill.

As of today, I use B&b orange bag briquettes in my kettles and Fogo black bag for lump in the summit kamado.

My favorites are B&B orange bag briquettes and FOGO Super Premium tan bag.  I just bought my first bag of Jealous Devil XL lump and it was impressive this past weekend.  Lots of large pieces, carry strap on the bag, lights easily and it lasted well.

I've used Kingsford Blue pretty much all my life without regrets.  When I was competing it was great because Big Orange and Big Blue put it on sale 2-3 times a year as a BOGO and my Team was on a budget.

I've never seen this B&B that you are all talking about.  Fortunately, I totally out of charcoal right now, so I'll be picking some up.

Wal-Mart is now carrying new brands that I have never seen there before include BluesHog, Jealous Devil & Cowboy. I couldn’t pass up on purchasing a couple of 2x20lb. pack of Cowboy briquettes for $17.92 or .45/lb., good stuff!

Most of the time, I use B&B Oak or Hickory Lump and their Briquettes when using the WSM. Like many others, I can attest that they have awesome charcoal! When I can't find B&B, I also use Royal Oak lump.
I think I might need a bigger backyard soon...
