    Seems like a good price. What size are the bags? I've got 30 bags stocked right now, but perhaps in the future.

    That's for a 10 pound bag.  I've used Ozark Oak and like Humphrey's Charcoal better.  @cortguitarman arranged a group buy of 3 pallets (90 bags at 20 pounds each) and had them shipped to a trucking depot in the Harrisburg area.  He and I met there and divided it up and took home some for others as well as ourselves.  Including the shipping it came to less than $13.50 for a 20 pound bag.  If you order fewer pallets, the price per bag goes up.

    I think Humphrey's is better than wicked good (about the same density but easier to start).

    Thanks for clarifying @shiff. It would take a really good deal to make me stray from Humphrey. As long Lee at Humphrey can keep the good prices coming, Ill keep doing our group buy.

    @bigphil you were in on our first group buy of Humphrey. Keep us in mind. Our price has gotten better because our order amount has gone up. As long as we order 3 or more pallets, the above price will hold true, if not get cheaper.

    I usually make a buy twice per year. Once in winter and once in spring

    I live in Arkansas and prefer the Ozark Oak myself.
