    Charcoal sale this year?

    I wonder if we'll see the usual KBB charcoal sales again. Costco had the Kingsford Professional double bag on sale last week.

    I doubt it. Charcoal pickings have been pretty weak for over a year now.


      Ain't no pessimist, by any stretch of th imagination...
      Too clear-headed to be an optimist...
      Reckon I'm summat about a realist...
      An, fer Th Official Record...times like they is???
      I'm guessin "No"...


        Ace had a pretty good deal on B&B Lump, 20lbs for $13. Other than that, KBB seems to have stayed pretty consistent last year for about 40 lbs for around $20 a few times last year. Memorial Day is usually around that time that they put it on sale if they’re going to.


          Home Depot and Lowe’s have always put their KBB on sale the Thursday before Memorial Day and ran it till that Memorial Day Monday. Guess we’ll have to wait till Wednesday to find out. I think that’s when they put out their ads for the weekend. They also have traditionally run those KBB sales for July 4 and Labor Day.

            They did not do that last year during COVID.

            His name is Homer D. Poe. So what did he call you? Is 'scoop' a hint?

          Yeah, I heard they had real bad crops over the winter. The briquet trees were hit the hardest. It was the Vid, coupled with that Texas storm I hear. 🕶

            Any idea where I can find a B&B Oak briquette tree? It would need to be suitable for Zone 6. 🙂

            That's great. I needed that laugh.

          For another 2 days Ace has Kingsford Original Charcoal Briquettes 16 lb for 6.99.
          Here in NW Indiana anyway.

          Pretty sure Costco just started the $5 off again as well

            Yep, picked up a few bags. Not counting on HD/Lowes to have their annual memorial day sale. But if they do, I'll probably go down and buy some.

            I have strong suspicions they’ll do it this year. I just feel it.

        Our Favorite Backyard Smoker

        The amazing Karubecue is the most innovative smoker in the world. The quality of meat from this machine is astonishing. At its crux is a patented firebox that burns logs above the cooking chamber and sucks heat and extremely clean blue smoke into the thermostat controlled oven. It is our favorite smoker, period.

        Blackstone Rangetop Combo: Griddle And Deep Fryer In One

        The flat top does the burgers and the fryer does the fries. Use the griddle for bacon, eggs, grilled cheese, and so much more. And why deep fry indoors when you can avoid the smell and mess by doing it outside!

        The Cool Kettle With The Hinged Hood We Always Wanted

        Napoleon’s 22″ Pro Cart Charcoal Kettle Grill puts a few spins on the familiar kettle design. In fact, the hinged lid with a handle on the front, spins in a rotary motion 180 degrees. It’s hard to beat a Weber kettle, but Napoleon holds its own and adds some unique features to make the 22″ Pro Cart a viable alternative.
