  • It is available by mail order from 'The Charcoal store"

    It is expensive to ship! Do a web search for the above.

  • What's special about Dragon's Breath? Actually first time I have heard of it.

    I have used Royal Oak (Wally World) for years as well as Kroger brand lump (10k small bags). Royal Oak makes the Kroger as well as the BGE lump.

  • It is just charcoal but I like it better than Royal oak because:
    It has fewer foreign objects (rocks, insulation,pieces of metal, uncarbonized wood, moon rocks and stinky c**p.)
    It will burn longer on a low and slow and high and hot (pizza cooks)
    I have never had a bad bag.
    I can buy it for a few penny's more than R.O.
    It smells good.
    I do use R.O. but just for certain cooks and only buy it when Menard's has it for under 4 bucks for the 8.8 lb bags.
    Of all the brands I've tried (Frontier, Kingsford char-wood, Stumps, Original Charcoal, Wicked Good, Grove, Cowboy, Fire King) this is my number one.
    I know that theres folks that can only source from Wally World but if you have other sources (I think it to expensive to have it shipped) I would try something besides R.O.
    Just my 2 cents and no I'm not offended if you disagree. It's just charcoal!

    Dragon's Breath is my favorite out of the 9 or 10 different lumps I've tried. A typical bag has a nice assortment of different size pieces and it doesn't create a ton of ash when you burn it. Fortunately, The Charcoal Store is here in MN so I have easy access to it. They say they ship a lot of it throughout the country.

  • The issue is availability in Mississippi. We don't get much distribution from the west or northeast. I have gone in on a pallet of Wicked Good Weekend Warrior which I save for low-n-slow cooks. It is dense, burns slow, but is harder to light, so I top it off with RO for lighting. I have gotten some Ozark Oak when travelling and it seems to be good.
    BGE and RO are available and I find them very similar (doesn't seem like RO packages the BGE lump with better pieces), and the RO is almost half the cost of BGE- no brainer.

    Hopefully some day we will have access to some of these other brands you guys talk about ! :)

    as clark said above, you should check out wicked good. i don't know if you can get it near jacktown, but grate grills has it down here. it's highly ranked on the naked whiz website. i think it's what you are looking for.

    are you coming to eggfest?
