I sometimes use lump too. Our local firewood house sells mesquite in 40lb bags for $10.
But for someone like myself who produces mediocre bbq it makes no difference to me what I burn as fuel. They all come out ok....:)))
Charcoal to me is convenient and reliable so I use it a lot.

but it's the look on your face as check for larger chunks, shall we say, that scares children and upsets other customers..

Well, they just had one all week long over the 4th of July. They might do another over Labor Day.

I forget to check there. I worked for Lowe's for a number of years and Home Depot was a curse word around my house.. I only recently started going to the HD.
