    Anybody here use Rancher's charcoal, pretty good stuff, better than Kingsford in my opinion.
    HD is clearing off their shelves, 20# bag for $2.99 a bag, heading out right now to stock up, just thought i'd pass it on, and this sale is country wide, not just local[​IMG]

    I have a pretty good stash Bubba. About 30 bags or so left. It's not Wicked Good by any means, but at a fourth the cost it's close enough.

    Yeah good stuff, and I agree, a whole lot better than Kingsford....

    I stocked up with only 8 bags as I have 300 lbs of RO lump. I may go and get a few more before they run out. I like the stuff as it holds good even heat, and less ash than regular briquets. I sure hope they decide to continue selling it next year...

    Haven't tried that one either, there is plenty of lump available in Houston, Cowboy is sold everywhere. Trouble is like everything else here, my charcoal will actually grow mold! Things you would never think could mold do so easily here!

    Is it briquettes or lump? Meijers has the Ranchers lump (expensive) #11 for $5. On the road now (in Flint, Mi at the Holiday Inn Civic Ctr). Can always use some. Will buy/trade. Getting pecan hulls and wood this Oct from Tx. Or will buy a few bags from ya in Silver Lakes.

    I've used Rancher's for about the last six months and like it just fine. Like a previous post, it's not wicked good but at that price it's great. What I like about Rancher's is that it's 100% hardwood ..... no coal dust added. And IMHO, the food tastes better than when smoked with Kingsford. I'm on my way to HD with my pickup. Thanks for the heads up on the price.

    My bad. [​IMG] It was Frontier Lump charcoal ( Rancher, Frontier, Frontier, Rancher.....they both have a western theme to the name) that Meijers has for #11 $5.

    I have been reading the forums here and been reading about Rancher Charcoal, Do you use this and Wood or do you just use the Rancher ???

    Bunky, the charcoal is used as a heat source. Along with that, I use wood for the smoke. Depending on your smoker, you may be able to use all hard woods.
