I think this is a national sale- our Lowe's had a pallet of bags as soon as you walk in the store.

To check, just to be sure here's the Brickseek:

Great deal. People don't seem excited about charcoal yet.

This comes out cheaper per lb than the combo pack kingsford for 10 thats runs on special every holiday. Never used it though. Might try it out.

Just got a charcoal grill this year, not sure how much I'll use it but had a few questions...

1. How do these compare with the Walmart Kingsford 2-Pack deal recently?

2. Is lump worth the higher cost over briquettes?

I don't remember the last time I cooked with charcoal or even was part of a BBQ that cooked with charcoal, it's probably been 20 years so I'm not up on what brands are good, etc.

Thanks.

I think those were 18.6 pound bags for Walmart - nothing against Kingdsford as I have them but I get a better flavor with the Royal Oak.

Also the lump is more tasty but less consistent. I get more temp spikes and drops in my smoker with lump compared to briquettes.

Kingsford changed the formula back in 2015 and the current product I read is not good. Last time I stockpiled Kingsford in 14 and that product works well. Royal Oak reminds me of the old Kingsford. Burns hot and longer, but slower to light.

I have been using charcoal for about five years, and the Royal Oak is better than Kingsford. Royal Oak burns more evenly and seems to last longer. I am using it to grill and not smoke, and for that it is very good.

Thank you all for the replies and the link. I'll read up some more on it but will probably go with the Royal Oak due to replies and ease of getting to Lowe's vs dealing with everything that is Wally World.

Usually the best deals in charcoal on found on the Memorial Day sales. Price per pound normally goes up on the 4th sales and Labor Day sales. Of coarse price per pound has been going up pretty much every year. I remember back in 10 when Kingsford was at $.20 a pound at Home Depot or under at Walmart. $8 for 40 pounds, I think I bought 240 pounds that year.

wircutter/sweethome also did a briquette comparison https://thewirecutter.com/reviews...-grilling/

They came to the same conclusion, RO burns hotter and longer than Kingsford
