    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.

    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.
