    Same s most people around here Kingsford blue bag whenever it's dirt cheap whether I need any at that particular moment or not. I know I'll go through it.

    The new Costco in North FTW caries enormous bags of Stubbs lump. It's awesome. So glad we found that since the stuff from Kroger was somewhat lacking.

    My goto charcoal is Kingsford blue bag. I look for the 2x20 lb bag deals like everyone else. When I use lump I go with Hasty Bake lump charcoal. It's far superior to anything else I've tried. Amazon has a very good deal on it. 5 10lb bags for $60. This is supposed to be the same Lump as Ozark Oak, just branded Hasty Bake. When I want super hot charcoal I use B&B or Kingsford competition.

    Actually that leads to another good question! Since I've had my weber I've made sure I used briquettes, it sounds like you're using lumpwood, what are the benefits from your perspective?

    Normally I pay almost $7 for an 8.8 pound bag.

    Kingsford I get that twin pack when I can of 13.9 pounders, I think...can't think in pounds or kilos right now

    Kingsford blue here. I too look for the Home Depot two 20lb'ers for $10 at the holidays, you just can't beat that deal with two sticks. Even when the deal isn't on, two 20s for $20 is still better than the small bags at the regular grocery or hardware stores. I always do quick math to see the per/lb price. If it's over .50/lb (the home depot non-sale price) then I move on. Less than .50 lb is a good deal.

    Yeah I guess thats my experience too! Its always interesting to see what people who've been doing this for a while do. You often pick things up knowledge without even realising it

    I look for the dual 20 lb. bags on sale at the big stores. Best value by far. The smaller the bag, the higher the cost, in my experience

    started a topic How do you buy your charcoal

    How do you buy your charcoal

    Hi All,

    I was wondering, for all you charcoal grillers out there, how do you buy it? In 8 or 10kg bags or do you buy bulk to keep costs a little lower?

    I guess I'm really wondering if buying in bulk might keep the costs a little lower

    Mike
