$0.39/lb isn't slick.

They're similar to Kingsford, but it doesn't contain the accelerant to make them light easier. I'm also guessing they don't use softwood like KBB does - the taste is a little better when going low n slow.

Good to try a lil bit, or if you absolutely hate KBB. But wait for KBB on Memorial Day to stock up.

I like lump. But no-filler briquettes are at least as good. You get the better flavor and energy density with the regular shape and predictable burn of a briquette.

I know it's not the popular opinion but I do a lot of pulled pork in a Kamado style cooker and I prefer to use briquette with apple wood. I use cotton balls soaked in rubbing alcohol to light it and can go over 13hrs while holding steady temperature. Wish people would understand just because it isn't a deal on something you prefer doesn't mean it won't help somebody else out. Thanks OP!

I still don't get as to what is wrong with this Charcoal? Is it Royal, Lowe's in the name, that are bad or the charcoal actually cause cancer if smoked or get into food or price? May be BBQing hurts animals? Can someone through a ray of light on the darkness...?

This is a great article on the science behind charcoal and why briquettes are actually better. But in the end it doesn't matter much what you use. Just get proficient at what you do use.

How do these compare to blue bag kingsford? I stick with briquettes for low heat and consistency in the smokey mountain.
