    Hmm, I wonder if SWMBO will let me get away with another 10 bags of charcoal (for the free shipping).

    I bought a box at WS a couple of weeks ago. Dammit, I paid $10! I'll probably try it this afternoon. More later. :)

    I doubt I'll get any based on naked whiz's review... http://www.nakedwhiz.com/lumpdatabase/lumpbag93.htm

    When I reviewed Afire, they were deliberately shorting the boxes by about 2 pounds.  This was measured by me and by a dealer.  I don't know if they are still doing that, but if the box has this cardboard grid in the bottom, it is probably underweight:

    it can be hit or miss on quality and ash production, so much so, I stay away......

    Just lit up a small amount.  Meh.  It was on top of regular lump to make it go further.  Didn't light that well.  No improvement.

    The coconut briquettes burned down to a fine powder in a couple of hours, much as I'd assume tha charcoal briquettes would do. No advantage over lump that I can see.

    Since SWMBO was at the Lego store yesterday with the boy (I was at a horse show with the girl), and there is a W-S in the same mall I had her pick up a couple boxes.  Egged some chicken legs, breasts and shrimp tonight, and truth be told , I hate this stuff!

    I will put myself in the "LUCKY" column, "headquarters" for Grove charcoal is about 5 miles south of the house and I have a year round supply at $12-$15/20 lbs bag 2 blocks from the house.

    I Bought this on sale and the boxes did not have cardboard on the bottom so they were full.
    I just did a 6 hour pork butt on the mini and more than half left. I have another box but $3.99 is tempting. May get some more they light real quick.
