It doesn’t get much hotter than the EGG cookin’ in July! Make sure to keep yourself hydrated with a bit of whatever you’re using for the Beer Can Chicken. Ice Cream Sandwiches are also a great way to stay cool. Looking for some great ideas for a summer cook out? Try out a Pimento Cheeseburger or Dr. BBQ’s Spare Rib Surprise. Just don’t be surprised if your neighbors stop by for a quick bite when they smell what you’re cooking!

I don't know if the quality is going downhill. But I did buy my first two bags after reading the reviews on nakedwhiz. I bought the US version of the red bag. So remember everybody, if you are comparing RO, make sure you know the country of origin.
I am impressed. Truth be told, there were not a lot of large pieces. However, it really was good on the other end - there was essentially no fines or really small stuff. All very uniform. No foreign material. It lit off great, used 3 oil soaked paper towels (wanted a high fire for burgers - 550 final target). Ramped right up to where I wanted it within just a few minutes of the flames going out. (I was shooting for 350, so I could go back inside and finish the prep)
$6.67 at Walmart. This works out to about 63% of my local BGE lump cost.
The only times I have had the fire die down is when I overshoot on start up and have to chase it back down. I pour the lump (not stack) and only light one spot in the center. I don't have a blower, I can see how that would burn down and not outwards.
Not a failure, just a struggle. Well said SmokeyPit.
