  • I have not but I use Mexican mesquite charcoal every day and love it. It's distributed out of CA as well but I don't see that the 2 companies are connected. If it's like mine, it's good.

  • WG good is awesome. It can be hard to light but it's awesome once it gets up and going. Very stable and man can it get hot once it gets going!

    I did ABT's and Spatchcock Chicken yesterday the charcoal did great, easy to light  held heat very well, added a mesquite flavor. I will buy this again when I am on west coast. Oh yea, ABT's were a huge hit did about 30 all were gone in just a few min. Chicken was also great very moist and flavorful.

    Glad you started this thread was wondering the same thing Stater Bros in costa Mesa has 20lb bags for under $4.00. Guess I better buy a few bags.
