Found this deal (slick or not it's still incredibly cheap) while shopping at Walmart.

They had torn bags that were taped up and marked down to $7.25 which is even better! I grabbed a few. First time trying coals so we'll see how it goes!

What does my post have to do with last weeks post? For those who don't frequent SD much, they will at least get to see this pop back up to the top in case they missed it.

When you see those Best Buy threads with the WD 8TB drives that pop up every other week, do you down vote those too?

Anyways, prices may be cheaper and YMMV, but less than $10 a bag for 30 lbs of coal is still cheap.

This will be my first time trying it. I'll be reverse searing some Tomahawks Saturday. I'll report back this weekend.

The 3 recent reviews on Walmart's site seem to have great feedback on them.

This is legit regular price of what it is at Walmart. It isn't slick.

Gotcha. Please post later and let us know what you think of it. I'm running low on Royal Oak and wouldn't mind trying something out if it's cheaper.

Mix reviews about this stuff on my facebook grill groups. They say it burns with an awkward smell and leaves a weird taste on the food. I haven't personally tried it. Great price for 30 lbs.

I checked for reviews on the green egg and Kamado Joe facebook groups and couldn't find any input on it. I ended up going to restaurant depot and just stocking up on royal oak there. I may still pick up a few bags just to try it out.

Just used this when cooking our last round of steaks. Seemed to hold its temperature on par or better than Kingsford. Going to try it on ribs on the fourth. At ten bucks you really can't go wrong.

Here is my review on it since I used it last night. I didn't have a chimney burner to start the fire properly, so I stacked it how I do with my briquettes, added a little charcoal fluid and lit it up.
The coal is broke up in big chunks, so it may take longer to burn and turn white...I'd say it's took close to 30 mins.
I used indirect grilling when reverse searing a Tomahawk and the coals had consistent heat the entire cooking session.
The coals were still hot and I was able to cook up 2 dozen oysters and 5 corn.
These coals can definitely last as long if not longer than briquettes. They do have a smell when initially burning and I didn't notice any sort of funky taste while eating the steak.
Overall I'm satisfied with this product. I'll probably be using hardwood lump coal from now on.

I just stocked up at my Walmart at $1 per bag. A lot of them were torn but I went through the pallet and grab about 20 bags that were fine.
