Home Depot charcoal sale $7.97/40 lbs

$7.97 right now for 2x20 lb twin paks of Kingsford blue. I already loaded up this morning, as much as I can fit in my vehicle. I'm picking up another dozen twin paks tomorrow.
Dollar/lb, this sale beats all other current charcoal sale, anywhere.....Lowes, Walmart, etc... Load up folks!

Which begs the question, how long does a bag of charcoal stay good for?

Forever if you keep it dry.

Well, I'm down to the last couple of bags of charcoal from last September's Labor Day sale. And they burn as fresh as new.
I always like to stock up as least to last me through the next major sale which will be the week of July 4th. But I think I picked up enough on this sale to last me through Labor Day.

Some other forum was talking that if you leave the bags on concrete, the bag will soak up moisture, and it's best to keep the bags off the ground.

I only use lump wood charcoal when I am BBQ smoking, I buy it from Makro (like a Costco) restaurant quality costs 10.50 for 12 kilo's inc tax or $17.3 for 26.4 lbs, I spend some time fondling the sacks so I get a sack with a lot of big chunks in it so you dont need to top up as many times.

We try to get the lump at an end of season sale. Would hope to get it for 50 cents per pound; but with the declining dollar and high fuel prices ....
The rising prices of charcoal makes having good draft controls all the more important.
