What's is the best briquette for grilling?

First, those are some great looking recipes Rainee.

Now, about what type of charcoal/hardwood briquettes to use. Where do I get the hardwood briquettes around here Rainee? What's the brand name, etc. I guess I'm using the right term. TIA

Lump is usually better, as it does not have a bunch of filler. It creates less ash (due to no fillers) it burns hotter.

check this out for info on lump.

I saw some that look familiar on the site you linked - I've seen Royal Oak - I've heard Green Egg is the best (was that the name??)

Again, I have to climb on the Lump Hardwood Charcoal bandwagon. I love the stuff.

You have to shop around to find a good brand. Royal Oak sounds familar. I think I may have used it back in OK.

One thing I do know, is that you have to find a brand with regularly-sized lumps of charcoal. This is why briquettes are so popular, as they burn evenly. I've got a cheap bag of lump charcoal in my garage, and I know it's cheap, with irregularly-sized lumps. Some are huge, most are tiny. This makes laying a fire hard.

There's only two places that I know of right now in my area that sells lump charcoal, a local grocery store, and Lowe's. The brand Lowe's sells is the good stuff. I'll have to go and get a bag or two here soon.
