personally, i burn the following:
KBB - of which i'm now out of and not planning on restocking to my stash
KPro - 6.5 bags left and will use these till they run out
B&B Briq - just bought some from Ace today
B&B Char Logs - just bought some today from Ace for my longer cooks and (HAF briskets)
Cowboy Briq - have come to like the flavor these impart on chicken, beef and shrimp and they produce less ash than KBB and KPro which I'm happy about
Jealous Devil 20# bag - just ordered 10 bags (friend's discount) and this will be my goto for daily cooks as I want a cleaner burn and less ash to clean up.
I have become less interested in KBB and KPro due to an off smell the partially burned coals produce (kinda smell like cat pee/ammonia-like) and the heavy burning smoke smell produced on chimney lighting. I experienced neither of these issues from my most recent Cowboy bags purchased from Costco.
