My favorite charcoal is back at the house of thirdeye, and just in time.... I only had 20 pounds left. These 40's are packed into a neat tuff plastic material bag.

    That's how we water the grass in the winter.... I guess three decades was a little shy, how about two score plus. :laugh:

    It was in the Sysco catalog. They supply restaurants, and I didn't realize it was a stock item. It was hidden in the "Chemical / Janitorial section.

    I'm sure it's available in Colorado, I e-mailed them and they gave me a list of dealers in Denver. If you can find their oak lump it's really good too.

    Well, try one bag and see how you like it. I learned to cook on a stick burner, so it's the closest thing to that I have used. I use it on all my longer, heavy meat cooks. It's in large pieces so some need to be smacked with a hammer. I'll mix in some Royal Oak to fill in the gaps.

    It is sparky when lighting, but that's the nature of the beast. Since mesquite wood (fresh) is about the strongest woods out there, once it's turned into lump it still provides a certain amount of flavor on it's own. All mesquite lump burns hotter, so your vent settings will be different.

    From the Lazzari site: Several hundred restaurants nationwide use Lazzari charcoal, including such high-profile venues as the Tadich Grill, Chez Panise, Zuni and The Slanted Door in the San Francisco area, as well as gourmet grills, Brazilian churrascarias, and Indian tandooris from coast to coast.

  • Wow...too bad you can't find anything better.

    That bag sells for $9.45 out here...but it's nasty stuff-IMO.

    Your taste buds must be gone Wayne.

    Oh Darry,

    Hehehhee. That's not all that's gone. I'm very simple when it comes to taste... I'm always satisfied with the best.

    Hey, does that offer to crash that party have an expiration date? Is Evans coming?

  • Not being that familiar with this brand, how does it compare to Ozark Oak that NakedWhiz rates very highly?

    I love the bigger bags. My dealer carries these 40 pounders I believe they come from Chigger Creek. Good stuff.

    Thanks again for the gloves, they are almost to pretty to use :whistle: :laugh:
  • thirdeyethirdeye Posts: 7,428
    TNW's ratings are top notch, they just don't take into account availability.

    Since Maple Leaf dropped off the US distribution, Ozark Oak is one of my favorites. Unfortunately I can rarely get it. So, if I could get it at a fair price, it would replace Royal Oak without a question. But I would still buy the LAZ.

    At last count I can get 5 different lumps, so my selection is limited.

    I think Chigger Creek are the folks that CWM gets flavor wood from...

    Glad you like the gloves, don't hold back....they are meant to be used (and abused).

    I only allow 2 Outlaw Eggers at a time.

    Hope you can make it.

  • That is Chigger Creek Pat, I am making a run in the next few weeks to stock up. For what I am paying for 10 lbs, I can buy a little dust.

  • Yes it is, and I am so low on apple, cherry, sugar maple and Alder chips.

    That's good to know. If I make it, of course it will be at the last minute, but I'd be on my best behavior.... I'll bring some Match Light to make things right.

    If you haven't tried their lump yet you should Mike. I like it a lot. I'm still overstocked on their apple and cherry chunks. Really glad my dealer is carrying it now and will have plenty of it at the Sunshine State fest. I bought 2600 cu. inches of both the apple and cherry.

  • There quality really went down a few years ago, but I am going to try it again.
