    I'm really jealous of you guys getting such deals on charcoal. About the 'best deal' I can get is a 7 lb bag of Cowboy lump for abour $7. Not much of a deal! I have a friend that found 17# bags of Royal Oak lump for abour $10 at a rest. supply store, but it's literally 100 miles away. Any ideas????

    Well it all appears to be the same stuff. I tend to agree.

    WalMart has RO lump(USA),10lb for $6 and change in Maine, and if you can find an Ocean State Job Lots near you they have the 17lb RO lump from Argentina for $10.

    Wow! I logged on this morning to see if anybody had any knowledge of this stuff. And there the info is, just waiting for me. Now that's service! Thanks for posting it, PC.

    I ran across it as Sam's yesterday. It was priced the same per pound as Kingsford briquettes; for some reason, 63 cents per pound is sticking in my head as the price.

    Not being overly enamored with stuff made in Mexico (North America China), I didn't want to spend anything on it until I knew more.

    Pigcicles noted that with it being mesquite, it will be a stronger smoke than some like. Will it be strong enough to overpower apple or pecan chunks added to it for smoking in a drum? I did the oversmoke thing with Mesquite once. Hope to God I never do it again.

    No, especially not the pecan. Apple is milder and you may want to use more of it. But wood is generally more dominant than even mesquite charcoal.
