Who has used this high end charcoal I see?

Postby DogTag34 » Wed Oct 04, 2017 2:29 pm

I admit I've ordered my share of wood online. I like the selection I can choose from and quite frankly the convenience. That led me to recently looking at lump charcoal, I was mainly looking to see if a larger purchase brought in lower prices then I can get in a store. I uncovered highend charcoal I've never heard of, fogo and devil or red devil something like that....good grief it's 50 bux a bag. Is it ANY better and by how much- I normally rate lump by size of chunks.....I don't like all that small crap.....I've never measured temperature or how long it burns etc....I can't see me buying it as I don't see the benefit but has anyone used this high end stuff before?

I looked into Red Devil once, and ever since, I keep getting ( special ) offers but I can't see spending that much loot...
I'm partial to Royal Oak Lump myself.
8$ a big bag is what I find. As long as the bags are thrown like a gorilla in the Samsonite Luggage commercial, they always seem to be good sized chunks.
Most of the time I get mine, they are fine. Also burns very hot and CLEAN.
Just my 2,¢

I got tired of bad smelling (burning) lump so I started using FOGO and it is way better than Cowboy and Royal Oak.
Some very large pieces in the bag and fewer of the tiny worthless bits.
