Saw Costco had Lump Charcoal today. Anyone used it? If so, what are your thoughts?

    I have been hoping that Costco would start carrying it. Nothing at my local store, and nothing on line that I could find...

    Have a bag in the garage, will test it this week. The bag I have has no name brand on it.

    I can tell you that several years ago, Costco carried lump for just one season and has never repeated it. It was excellent and some people bought many bags for their stash.

    There's no way to tell if it's as good till someone reports on it...but Costco is known for their quality standards. I'm going to be on the lookout for it.

    Scott, let me know if you find it there. It's a challenge for us to get lump. I usually buy several bags at Eggfest but I won't be able to this year. I'll have to make a special trip over at some point just for lump. :(

    I will let you know!

    Is it this?

    Somehow Texas gets all the great deals. Sams has something similar down there. In the mid-atlantic we are lucky to find royal oak at the mall-wart.

    Scott, if you do find limp at Costco, please post it on the forum. If you get it there, it might show up a few hundred miles south of you!

    Seems like a great price.

    And I'm wondering, is it something only business Costcos sell? Maybe that's why some people aren't finding it.
  • Ok, the lump that Costco in Houston, TX has is from the The Original Charcoal Company. Its a huge bag and I went ahead and picked one up today. Will let you know how it turns out once I use it.
