Fire King Lump???

I'm a fairly new Egghead and have been trying several different kinds of lump and The Naked Whiz's website has been very helpful in my search for the perfect lump. I watched a video on the facility where the Fire King lump is made in Missouri and decided to try it. It didn't hurt that there's a guy in St Louis that is selling the lump at wholesale prices. After a couple of cooks with the Fire King, I've got to admit that it's the best that I've tried so far. Great flavor, east to start, and long lasting. Pure Missouri hardwoods. Has anyone else tried Fire King?

    I use Fire King exclusively for my business in St Louis and I get from the Farmer's Co-op in Old Towne St Peters. I think it's about $9 for a 20lb bag and $17 for a 40lb bag.

    I get mine at a small local grocer called Manino's in Cottleville for 10.99 for the 20# bag. Really good stuff IMO.

    I get it from a small Grocery store in Cassyville and Edwardsville called the Market Basket for $10 for @0 pounds. Good stuff. There is a guy from Eureka that sells it on craigslist for $10 a bag also.

    Kokeman - I bought 100 lbs (5X20lb bags$50.00) from the guy from Eureka. The more you buy, the cheaper the rate. He can be contacted at stlcharcoal@gmail.com.
