    B&B Charcoal at Lowe’s

    Yesterday B&B tweeted that Lowe’s is currently testing sales of 7 of their products at “select stores” (they don’t know which stores). I can’t find any mention of it on the B&B website.

    For those averse to clicking a Twitter link, I took a screenshot:

    I’ll probably check the Lowe’s in Chapel Hill this weekend.

    I really hope ours starts carrying B&B products!! but if they do get into the Lowe's nation wide I hope they can keep up with the demand better than they currently have.

      I bought several bags of B&B orange at Academy Sports yesterday for $7.49, regularly $8.99.

        Dang! The nearest AS is 236 miles away! My Ace never has them

        Even better Steve. For a long drive sometimes I’ll call the store and have someone put any eyeball on the product. Sometimes the quantities the store website shows, doesn’t match up to what’s actually in the store.

        Yeah, it shows online that they have them in that specific store (WOOT!) My daughter has decided, 2 weeks after Christmas, that she wants a new bike, and is willing to pay for it herself, so... if I go and they're out of B&B briquettes, we can at least look at bikes for a 12 year old and all is not lost!

        Yeah, it's always a good idea to somehow make sure first, Panhead John. If I'm driving any distance I like the store pickup method because you get an email that says it's ready to be picked up. At least that way somebody is supposedly matching up the SKU number with what's on the order. I don't always trust whoever answers the phone to know what they're talking about.

      My Ace had something from B&B named Pinion.

        Pinion wood is usually from New Mexico. I use it in our chiminea. It smells great and keeps bugs away.

      I hope they carry it here at the Lowe's in my town. I've had to go to Academy Sports in Greensboro to get it before but that is about a 30-35 minute drive.

        I have not been able to find B&B briquettes at Academy for over six months. They do carry the lump, pellets, char-logs, and logs. Anyone know why the briquettes are no longer available. Folks at our Academy are clueless.

          I think it varies by location. My Academy has plenty of B&B briquettes.

        I found B & B Lump Charcoal at my Lowe’s just now. I happened to be shopping nearby so I thought I’d check. 15 lb. bags for $12.98. I didn’t see any briquettes. They also had Weber SmokeFire Pellets. If anyone in Houston is looking, I found it at The Royal Oaks Lowe’s...corner of Westheimer and Kirkwood.

          Panhead John It is ironic that you found B&B charcoal at 'Royal Oaks'.

          😱 And they don’t carry Royal Oak.

        I too cannot locate their briqs at any of our local Academy Stores. I’m giving this a try from Sam’s, the description and such look very similar to Royal Oak Prem or Chef Select which I love.

          Not bad! $8.50 each for a 20 lb. bag.

        I posted this in another thread somewhere, but B&B responded to me on their FB page with the following when I mentioned I can't find their briquettes anywhere, including at Ace:

        Hello Jeff, you are not the only one in this certain predicament. There has been tremendous demand on all charcoal products, and we have increased our production up 40%! However, demand is up almost 60% and it is difficult to catch up. Ace is buying more products from B&B than ever before so they would be the best option at this point. I am not sure why you can’t buy it online from Ace. They are receiving truckloads of B&B every week. Academy Sports sales are also up. Do you have an Academy near you?

        I've since called my local Ace where I last purchased the B&B briquettes and talked to the manager, and he confirmed that a) they don't have the briquettes in the store, and b) it showed their warehouse was out of them as well, so he couldn't order any. He had no idea why the warehouse was out, or when any more might come in.

          Not one to brag, but since I joined AR and posted some of my cooks, so many people are trying to duplicate them. That’s why charcoal sales are skyrocketing. So I guess you can blame me for the shortages. 🤓

          As I suspected Panhead John ! If you wouldn't mind, in future posts can you please refer to that huge stash of Weber briquettes you're still working on instead...? 😆

        I bought some B&B at Academy yesterday - my Lowe's does not have it. They only had the hickory lump in stock, no oak, so I took a bag of that ($12.99 for 20#) and a 17# bag of their briquettes for $8 I think. They had no char-logs in stock either. Just the hickory lump and the briquettes.

          The Pit Barrel Cooker May Be Too Easy


          The PBC has a rabid cult following for good reason. It is absolutely positively without a doubt the best bargain on a smoker in the world. Period. This baby will cook circles around the cheap offset sideways barrel smokers because temperature control is so much easier.

          The Good-One Is A Superb Grill And A Superb Smoker All In One


          The Good-One Open Range is dramatically different from a traditional offset smoker. By placing the heat source behind and under the smokebox instead of off to the side, Open Range produces even temperature from left to right, something almost impossible to achieve with a standard barrel shaped offset.
