Wicked Good Charcoal - Is It All That Wicked?

    Well I purchased a bag of Maple Leaf and it seemed to be denser and has certainly lasted longer than any bag of RO I have purchased but at 22.00 it is awful pricey.

    There is more to lump than ash, density, how hot, etc..  There is the taste of the smoke.  Some lump produces a smokiness without adding wood.  I've been using Dragon Breath that I got from Smokin Fyrpit that provides a taste that I really like.  Don't get me wrong, there is a pecan charcoal out of Murfreesboro Tennessee that adds a great taste too but it is far more expensive.  Howerver, I think people should try multiple brands and types to see what makes them happy.  It's the taste imparted to the meat that makes me happy.
