Default Charcoal Sale

Home Depot is having their sale on Kingsford Charcoal again. Two bundled twenty pound bags for 9.97 ea. Limit 4, so 8 bags per customer.

The wife and I stocked up today. Looked like we were hauling 'shine.

Took me a year and a half and 1k posts, but I may have finally posted something useful.

Happy Memorial Day all

In the Birmingham area, Lowe's price is $8.00 for two, or $4.00 each. Looks like HD & Lowe's battling it out! Good time to stock up, for sure!

Dang, I just spent $18 on two ten pounders. Well at least I can stock up on this sale.

I just hope it is still on sale tomorrow.

Yeah, I've been taking advantage of this sale for the last 2 years, on Memorial and 4th of July holidays. I usually stock up plenty enough to last until the next sale.
The bags were slightly bigger last year. The bags are now about a pound lighter. No biggie, still a good deal.

Default Re: Charcoal Sale

Ths thread was made for jackin. I like the value of the Piggly Wiggly store brand in lump. "Best Choice",
there's a good chance the middle of the country is exposed to that charcoal. It is Royal Oak charcoal lump
bagged as Best Choice in a red bag. I think the standard briquet bag size is 3.99. Not seemingly as cheap
as a Kingsford big box deal, but GOOD lump coal at a good price. I swear 2/3 of the bag is large and medum
pieces, and a third small chunks. No hardwood flooring and burns great. Not that hardwood flooring scrap
doesn't burn just as hot and last as long.

It really is a matter of what stores you have that MIGHT be served by Associated Wholesale Grocers. They distribute the goods. I am sure you are familiar with Winn Dixie's Thrifty Maid....same deal. Not the same charcoal, but who knows...maybe. I am guessing your store brand distributor is in Birmingham or hell, maybe even atl. They have everything else. But I guess I am just lucky. Associated Grocers seems to start at Nashville and work west. Sorry.
I am guessing KROGER brand would do you right.

While I am fully aware that I'm responding to 3+ month old posts here...

Excel, while I've never seen "Best Choice" brand out here, if it is in fact "Royal Oak" as Brad says it is (I have no reason to doubt him, I'm saying I've never researched it myself since you typically can't buy it here) you should be able to find Royal Oak at Wal-Mart.

One thing to watch for when you buy Royal Oak, and that is that you have to check the country of manufacture on the bags. It's made in 4 different countries now, and supposedly, according to NakedWhiz some of the foreign stuff is crap. I've only used the USA manufactured and have no complaints for the price. Unlike a lot of other lump in that price class, RO isn't made from kiln dried scrap trimmings (ie: fast burning and flavorless).

Just came back from Lowes with 8 bags for $36. At $0.27 a pound it's a great price. Had to make two trips to the truck because of the store limit per purchase but all stocked up now. I hope.

I took the Wife and picked up 4 bags this morning at Home Depot, would cost me more than the $1 difference in gas to go further to Lowes.

Just bought 20 bags of Quebec pure maple charcoal for $4 a bag! The smoke flavor is incredible but it burns hotter than the Kingsford Comp.

Craigslist.

I am down to my last four bags. If I can't find more, I am going with Kingsford Competition. Kingsford Competition is easier to use due to uniform chunks. With real hardwood charcoal (in natural form), the smoker can choke easily due to small pieces taking up all air pathways. Nothing worse when the smoker can't get enough air!
