    The Best Charcoal for Grilling of 2019 (according to this review)

    Ran across this article, pretty long, thought I'd share it.
    They tested with burgers, and the ones on the kettle look, to me, like frozen Bubba burgers or similar, and they have probes in them!

    Thanks for sharing Bob! It seems like they liked the Weber briquettes but of course it is expensive and hard to find in most areas and they took that into account.

    Interesting article, thanks for sharing it Bob. I really like RO briquets for grilling, less white smoke at start up and a pleasant aroma. Kingsford for L&S as RO does not do to well in a snake they don't want to light off each other as well as Kingsford. The article spoke highly of RO lump think I'll give that a try.

    answers question I had a few weeks earlier, as I always wondered how RO fared against Kingsford . I did get some RO briquets on sale at WM to compare , so we'll see. Thanks for sharing that article Bob!

    They seem to do fine with minion method. Even the Weber doesn't seem to do well in a snake.

    Interesting that they even had match-lite in there
    Good review and read and I've been an avid RO user since 06.

    I agree, I use RO with the minion method and have had no problems at all.

    I'm really liking this charcoal myself B&B Texas style oak lump. Picked up a bag at my local Ace Hardware. It has large pieces of lump, not a lot of small pieces and not a lot of dust. When burning it has a pleasant aroma, throws off plenty of heat, and last a long time. If you can find it give it a try, I highly recommend it.

    I like B&B and RO lump. Wally World up the road has them. But if Im at the grocery and Im between bags of lump, I go with the old standby: Kingsford.

    I use a lot of lump these days, often mixed with some lit briquettes to help get it going.
    My choice is Timber, not widely available except here in MO, and not common even here.
    They bag for Rockwood and others, but I don't know the other brand names.
    I've heard RO bags for the BGE brand, and BGE kicks the price up a goodly amount.
