RUBYRW,..... I use the lump to get my fire good and going then add the char-logs to keep the heat going, they don't put off much smoke like the direct lump does but do put out more heat. Now if I'm cooking yard bird in my WSM I only use the char logs, again because they put off more heat and less smoke.
Smoke causes your chicken meat to get a pinkish hue which when comp cooking can make a judge nervous. The chickens cooked but a judge will see pink meat and think its not cooked.
That's Just the way I do it and why, even when I'm cooking in the back yard, which is most of the time.

I prefer royal oak. I've found too much crap in bags of Cowboy... I've yet to find something that wasn't charcoal in a bag of RO

Another fan of Royal Oak, when I can't get Rockwood. I just bought a pallet of Rockwood.

RUBYRW, if you have an Ace Do-It best center near you then you can order Chefs Select online and have it drop shipped to the store.

Try this link, unless you want to buy ROCS from WM like you've shown. It's $23.99 for a 40 lb bag at DoitBest HW Stores currently. K.A.M. was steering you right.

It's my favorite briquet, 100% hardwood.

For lump I'm still working on a stash of Frontier from when Sam's Club carried it. I tried some Carbon del Sur lump from Restaurant Depot and it was good for the price but I haven't been in a RD in a while so I don't know the current price or even if RD still carries it.

Academy has many varieties of B&B charcoal available including the char logs. I haven't tried the char logs yet but they look like something useful for my trailer mounted smoker.

B&B for the win.
Best I have ever used. Lights easy and burns for a long time. Big pieces in the bag.
Very happy.
