Stopped in my local Walmart yesterday and saw a full skid of Royal Oak All Natural Hardwood Premium Charcoal Briquettes 18 lb. 2-pack (36 lbs.) on sale for $8.88. I purchased enough to cover me all the way through the end of summer and into the fall. I think this is a pretty good deal on some great charcoal and thought I would give my fellow SD'ers a heads up

Thanks Op. I'm waiting on a deal for lump charcoal. Personally I much prefer pure lump charcoal over briquettes. Briquettes are formed using a variety of ingredients and fillers most of which are not even listed on the package. There is no such thing as a "premium" briquette in my opinion.

I personally like Briquettes. Lump always seems to be broken up at bottom of bag, Sparks a lot and burns too fast, but maybe that is just me...

No filler briquettes like Weber use wood char and a little borax to help the briquette release from the mold.

As for ingredients, review the SDS for the product. They will contain information about any materials used.

There are times when having the consistent shape make briquettes an advantage.

Frak! Just stocked-up on the Lowe's deal earlier this week... "All y'all look alike!" What's the difference?!

Lump tends to shine when you have the ability to control air flow really well, like in the ceramic type grills. Briquettes are more a jack of all trades fuel but tend to leave a lot more ash and burn through quicker since they're half clay.

Might be true, although I have to say, I used to be a Kingsford guy, but after going to Royal oak I will never go back. Kingsford had twice the ash left over and smokes the entire yard out in a cloud of black smoke for 10 damn minutes when you light it. RO burns much cleaner IMO.

I was born into a Jehovah's Witness family. I would've been happy with any kind of x-mas gift as a kid. Even charcoal. 😂

They are more like 25% filler, and the filler is limestone.

Supposedly these are smaller briquettes of the Chefs Select formula. Should be no-filler, I think. If that's the case, they should burn a lot like Weber briquettes (made by RO). Very hot with minimal ash.

In expanded product description it says, "made without fillers or chemicals".

For the price, worth a shot.
