I bought four 35 pound bags from Amazon back in April. When they were "only" $50 each. It is more expensive but I need so much less.You bought some Jealous Devil? From Amazon? Expensive stuff. Does it really burn hotter and long than other lump charcoal? I got some too but haven't tried it yet because I got some cheap Home Depot/Lowes lump charcoal to finish up.
Is it really that good? That's touted by Harry Soo. I also got Harry's rubs and think they are very good.
(edit: I just checked and the paper bags they sell for $50 again. I got the plastic so I don't know if there is a difference?)
Should last me well into the next year...
After some getting used to the big lumps I can now pretty much exactly dial in my Webber temperature dending on what's on.
I say yes, it definitely burns hotter and longer because I need less.
And much much cleaner. Very little and pure white ash is left in the end. Not this gross grey ash stuff.
Will never go back to the "cheap" coals.
