    Default Stubbs charcoal

    Lowes had Stubbs brand charcoal in stock today. I grabbed a bag but haven't opened it yet.

    Anybody here tried it?

    I would, but our Lowes only carries Cowboy brand. I Use Stubbs bbq rubs with good success.

    I saw it at the Panama City Lowe's yesterday. I was curious and just about picked up a bag but as I recall it was in the $8 range and I thought that to be a little too much. I would really appreciate hearing your experience though. Perhaps it's worth whatever the cost is.

    Well, maybe not. Bottom of bag says


    9 bucks with tax for 15 lbs. The cowboy sits next to it on the pallett.

    I'll find out this afternoon how it burns.

    Curt, be sure and use the starter fluid too as described on the bag. I hear it's how you get the best results.












    Did you find that at Lowe's?

    Lowes is correct.









    Btw, I don't have any fluid. Can I borrow yours?

    One more pic from the bag. I'll "try" to share my experience later, but I've used only lump for 20 or so years, so lump is all I can compare it to.

    I used it today with in my Webers (one 22" OTG and 2 SJPs). I cooked a bunch of Nathan's hot dogs and some Cavenaugh smoked sausages. I had a couple of the sausages, and they had a nice flavor to them, but I didn't have any hot dogs.

    I don't think they burn as long as a standard Kingsford charcoal, but they also didn't have that chemical smell when first lighting them.

    I'll probably give a few more tries and with some other meats before I render a final judgment.

    Somebody got pics. If they send them to me I will post them.
