Trying a new lump charcoal

Anyone tried "Nature-Glo" hardwood lump made by Royal Oak?  I'm usually a Wicked user, but my guy was out.
Thanks

    Looks like a good one to try out if Wicked Good is not available.

    I've heard it's really good, but can't find it here in MN.

  • Hi Everyone:

    I was watching a video and this guy mentioned there was a lump charcoal that doesn't impart any flavor to the food. I didn't catch the type of wood/name. My family doesn't like any smoky taste when I'm making bird....thought I would get some (if it exists) when I do Thanksgiving turkey.

    Cheers,

    Alex

    It's not necessarily a certain brand, but more the carbon content of the charcoal.  The higher the carbon content, the less wood that's left in the charcoal.  Less wood = less smoke.

    If you get a charcoal that is under-carbonized, or if full of molding/floor scrap, it's going to smoke like crazy......and not that's necessarily the flavor(s) of smoke you want.  If that happens with a mesquite based charcoal, you could ruin that turkey.

    Wicked Good is the least 'smoke flavored' I've used.  If you don't add wood chips/chunks, you will get almost no smoke flavor.
