Gone are the days of $10 or less - the last deal on the 2x18.6lb bags for that price was in 2018. Memorial Day 2019, 2x20 was $12.90. It's only gone up since then. See for yourself if you don't trust me. I do not see an expiration date listed on the website.

If you want to wait until Memorial Day this year just in case, that's fine. But this is currently the lowest price I've seen for 40lbs from a national chain. It's 11% off their normal price, and Lowe's is currently showing $21.98 for the same thing, so this beats them by more than $4. Walmart is currently more expensive at $19.88 for a smaller 2x18lb pack.

RO Classic briquettes are $0.45 per lb at Lowes every day. KBB isn't nearly as good as it was a decade ago.

Yeah. Maybe we'll see some of the store brand RO cheaper over the weekend. Anything with the "ridge" design on the bag is made by them. RO Orange bag briquettes (not lump), Embers (HD), and Expert Grill (WM) are all the same formula. It's just the store brand stuff are "seconds" where the stamp wasn't perfect.

At $0.51 per lb, I think the RO All Natural [walmart.com] from Walmart is a better buy. No piney Kingsford taste. The binder is some vegetable stuff instead of limestone. Seems to burn longer and make a little less ash. Everyday price and free delivery at 3 bags.
.44 per pound..yikes miss those .25 per pound days
Price of meats is so high, can't enjoy half the things I used to smoke and cook.

Me too. I wonder now if those were loss leaders and they don't want to do them anymore, or if it was high enough markup that they could still manage a small profit.

I'm thinking that freight costs are playing a role in this.

Maybe? Prices jumped about 30% between late summer '18 and spring '19. The current sale price is only $1 more than the summer 2020 sale, which is less than a 10% increase.

Not to mention everyone switching to pellet smokers and lump probably hurt sales..

I'm hoping there are some charcoal deals around Memorial Day. I didn't see any good ones last year.

I used to work at Lowe's and most people that bought the deal would only buy charcoal. It was always limit 2 and they would try to buy more and make a scene if we pointed out the 1000 signs saying "limit 2". And we would run out early, no matter how much we ordered (80 or more pallets) and people would rage because of that. Definitely not worth the trouble.
