Big Green Egg - EGGhead Forum - The Ultimate Cooking Experience...
We hope everyone enjoyed their Fourth of July weekend and is excited for more warm weather grilling! This week, we’ll be making these two burgers: Stuffed Portobello Mushroom and Caribbean Chicken, and also eating lots of these Ice Cream Sandwiches in honor of National Ice Cream Month! It's time to think about getting out to one of the many #EGGfests around the country - see a list here

Anyone used this?

    I have used that kind.  It wasn't too bad, it is just pricey.  That is not the Kroger brand.  Not to sound smart @ss...but the Kroger brand has Kroger on it  :P.  The fire and flavor was fine, just no better than kroger and around me it is the same price for 3.8 less lbs. I have only purchased the F&F when they are out of Kroger.  This time of year, my Kroger only stocks a couple of bags at a time.

    Which came first the chicken or the egg?  I egged the chicken and then I ate his leg.

    +1  I've used this stuff and it wasn't bad, just a bit pricey.  I think I remember its made by RO.  I can buy a 22# bag of GFS (made by RO) all day long for $12 or 13.  I think I bought the Kroger lump for $6 and its 8.8#.

  • Lol. I figured it'd say Kroger but ya never know!
    They didn't have that bag your showing. Bought two bags of this to try.

    It'll burn and get you through your shortage. I bought some random stuff label grill mark a while back because it was cheap 9 for 20 pounds. It worked not great but I got a few pizzas and a 8 hour burn at 300 out of a load.

    It's marketed by a local couple here in Athens, GA. Really nice people. Check out their website. The lump is from RO, I'm pretty sure. When I inquired about buying in bulk from him, he said he only had it in the small bags...so it's outsourced from somewhere. Their planks are of good quality, and they have a good selection of woods. Check them out. They seem like a nice family, are avid Eggheads themselves, and if you're a supporter of The University of Georgia in any way, they are a local small business in Athens, which I always try to support.

    I've had good results with the true Kroger (aka RO) lump charcoal.  I use it when not going low&slow-for those cooks I'm in the WGWW camp after experimenting with many other brands.  FWIW-

    I'm order a load of WGWW when I can get to ace closses one is an hour away. I guess my Walmart will have RO sometime soon. I've never had a problem with it. Prolly cooked 50 bags and have found 2-3 odd things. Pretty good I think once you read about how charcoal is made.

    Biggest thing! I'm start keeping more lump at home. Just sold some old tires that were taking up garage space. Guys coming in the morning to get them. Gonna have a lump corner now!
