Charcoal

I use B&B. It’s a really good charcoal for the price. Consistent size chunks, burns clean and I haven’t found any filler. You can spend as much as you want on some of them. The favorite I’ve tried is Rockwood but I can buy two bags of B&B for the price of one Rockwood (about).

Worst I’ve used was Cowboy. All kinds of random filler crap in it.

B&B user as well. Oak works well for me when smoking even if I don’t throw any pecan/oak/mesquite splits in the fb.

I’ve had good experiences with the Fogo Super Premium. The regular Fogo didn’t seem to be anything special. B & B has done me right as well.

I use B&B, lights quickly using a chimney and cooks well.

B&B, Royal Oak, and the big bag at Sam’s that I can’t recall the name Western _______ .

If you come across one you are curious about, you can check it out at Naked Whiz dot com.

Bought a bag of Jealous Devil a little while back and it really burns hot, clean and for a long time. Price isn’t that friendly but I think I’m getting more cooks per bag

B&B here as well. Oak primarily although have used hickory as well. Lights great, excellent heat and just enough smoke for flavor although I use pecan and oak splits for most long cooks.
