    Nice looking pork there Beerman.

    How do you like that wicked good charcoal ? Can get some here kinda local (50min drive) Been thinking of trying it.
     
  7. The wiked good charcole seems to be pretty good. burns hotter and with less ash than what I have been using .. and more predictable on burn time and temp...it does cost more... but grabage in ....was using either cowboy or what ever the big blue box store had.
    This is definately an improvement

    I tried using cowboy brand and didn't like it at all. Now i'm using Royal Oak from wally world for just under $6.00 for a 10lb bag. That works pretty good. But i'm always open to try different things.

    I had seen that wicked good makes a hardwood briqette too. Figured that would be worth giving a shot someday too. Not sure on the price tho !!
