Picked up a couple of these twin packs a few days ago. They are good quality mass market briquets, so its a steal at $5 for 25lbs.

I would call BS on that review but they mention Stubb's (Cowboy Charcoal) as well which leads me to believe that they must know what they are talking about. IF this is somehow better than Stubb's then this must be some pretty decent charcoal. I have never seen it before and it's not available at any of the walmart locations in the DFW area, apparently. Shame because I am really wanting to try it out now.


edit: Found some in Carrollton, I am going to have to give it a try, especially at this price.

Lump charcoal has its uses, but it's expensive and burns fast. All natural versions of briquettes, which I believe that's what this is, provides the best of both worlds.

"Although our former pick for this guide was a clear test winner, it's consistently hard for our readers to find, so now it's our backup recommendation. Stubb's 100% All-Natural Bar-B-Q Charcoal Briquets burned hotter and produced less ash than any other charcoal we tested."

It sounds like they prefer Stubb's and only gave Royal Oaks the win because it's easier to find.

From what I've read, it's equivalent to Kingsford blue bag, meaning char dust, limestone, sawdust and nitrates. Royal Oak's Chef Select briquettes are 100% natural hardwood (like Stubbs), but is made for food service

i'm not looking to stir up the briquet vs lump debate, but just wanted to say that i find briquets more versatile and considerably cheaper than lump. That being said i'm always on the lookout for lump deals, particuarly from Royal Oak. Also i made sure to specifically note in the title that the deal was for the Briquets.

Note that the Royal Oak briquets, unlike the Stubb's briquets, have added nitrate and/or nitrite. According to a Royal Oak representative, these ingredients act as oxidizers, allowing the charcoal to light faster and burn a bit hotter initially. Incidentally, these compounds are the same ones the food industry uses to cure meat. Some commenters on forums have mentioned that these oxidizers can make controlling the charcoal temperature during the early phases of cooking difficult.

s'all good drunkles as i said this is a good deal eitherway. i am very tempted to try these but im really hooked on the natural lump coal particularly from royal oak, ive tried a few others but royal oak beats em imho.

Best I've seen recently for Royal Oak lump is about $9.75 for a 17# bag at Walmart
