    How does everyone like these? I was hesitent to try them because of the price point being so low.

    bigbaldbbq, no prob!

    sdesmond, alot of people on this forum seem to like the Royal Oak briqs better cuz they feel they have less additives than Kingsford. I personally prefer Kingsford, but it's up to you. Seem to make less ash than Kingsford do, but I don't know if they get as hot. Try them out, see if you like them.

    i use RO here because it is $8 bag for 18lbs versus kingsford that is $12 for a smaller bag..

    i like the flavor of RO better but that is just me

    I like them. Milder than Kingsford, but don't burn as hot. So, RO is cheaper but you use more. Seemed like a wash in that regard.

    They're not too easy to find here, plus I get cheap Kingsford at Sams, so I still use Kingsford.
