Glad the RO Briquettes work for you. The times I have tried them over the years they seem to last about half as long as crappy old Kingsford.
I thought everyone used kingsford for briquettes, and cowboy for lumps, and lots of wood. I was wrong?
Back before swearing off nasty old charcoal..Ozark Oak was the cats meow for quick grilling on the chicken blaster. Large bore mesquite lump for slow to fast direct on the big pit. Chef's Choice is the tool. Comes in 40 lb. bags and wildly varied on the size of the chunks. Sometimes there is small trees down in there. Does not play well with R2D2 water smokers.
