Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by JJCreole Quality charcoal & here are some tips
Here's how I use this in my Weber grill. For those complaining about small pieces falling through the charcoal grate, remedy that by adding a 2nd charcoal grate & install fireplace/woodstove insert bricks.
Place the 2nd grate over your 1st to create a waffle pattern. The fireplace bricks tremendously help with making the fire burn more evenly, & prevents you from adding too much charcoal. I use a cheap colander to sift any small charcoal pieces from the ashes then dump those bits atop my charcoal. Doing this fills the gaps in your charcoal so it burns slower. To maximize cooking space, add a 2nd cooking grate upside down atop your existing grate. If you cook your food atop the 2nd grate, it'll smoke better. There, you just turned a Weber kettle into a smoker. This works very nicely & won't hurt your wallet. Enjoy!

I feel like I'm getting a ridiculously great deal every time I buy this huge 17.6 pound bag. Royal Oak Hardwood Lump Charcoal is always consistently good quality. The bag is full of nice size lumps not little pieces. I use Royal Oak when smoking meats. The lumps burn hot and long. Royal Oak Lump doesn't impart any harsh flavor to the meat (which my wife hates). I'll keep buying this as long as HD stocks it.

Best Value for the price. This product burns evenly to produce a constant temperature while cooking. I have paid more for bags weighing far less with promises of quality that just were not there. You won't have that problem with this product line from Royal Oak!

This is the real deal. Verry little dust. Mostly nice-sized pieces. Very few uncarbonized pieces. No rocks. Sooooo happy home depot switched from the Cowboy lump to this. Bravo.

I have been looking for just this, I have tried them all and I can tell you that this is the fastest lump to get to full temp you will find anywhere it burns REAL hot if you want that, and is fantastic for low and slow cooks, I can't recommend this enough!
