What do you pay for a pound of hardwood charcoal? And what brand do you use?
I use Ozark Oak at $4 for a 10lb bag, or 40 cents a pound. Even though I've only tried a few other brands, I like it real well. It burns even and burns hot, and doesn't fill my firebox with ashes in 2 hours. Made in Arkansas I believe and I plan to keep using it.
Here is a site that rates lump charcoal. Ozark Oak is ranked #1 (another reason I tried it), but there are several good brands, and these guys provide some thorough commentary and pics.
Rancher Charcoal...$2.99 a 20# bag at HD.............good luck finding any!!
Best Choice lump marketed by Associated Wholesale Grocers. $3.99 10 lbs.
Royal Oak in a generic package.
I must add that I too use Rancher briquets from Home Depot. A pretty good deal at $2.99 per 20#. I mostly use this on my grill, but I like it too.
ive been looking for the rancher charcoal for 4 months. home depot down here in south fla doesnt carry it anymore .anyone know where to get it?
theyre killin me!!! that stuff worked great and it was cheap! good flavor too!
i think i have an update on that original charcoal. tried emailing them...no response tried calling the phone #s on their site ...no longer in service.. i would take that to mean they are maybe out of business?
