$7.88 for a bundle of (2) 15 lb bags. Obviously, YMMV.

Thats a good deal. I just bought a 20 pound bag of B&B hickory lump charcoal at Walmart for a good price.

Home Depot will put Royal Oak lump on sale right before Memorial day. A few days into the sale they will do a "special purchase".
I buy enough for the year that day.

I'm really glad to be back in the land of HEB and Academy to have a wide variety of charcoal products available, especially lump. I stick with 100% hardwood charcoals for my cooking, whether lump or briquets.

Here's a site with a lot of info on lump charcoal but it's skewed to use in ceramic kamado style cookers.

http://www.nakedwhiz.com/lump.htm

There's a lot of defunct brands still listed there though.

Kingsford changed their lump charcoal size and shape to a briquette that weighs less. The new shape does not lend itself as well to a Weber, where the chunks get re-used, as there is less of it to re-use after one burn. The new shape does seem to light faster.

I prefer the original "lump".

Well sorta. Lump was the only 100% hardwood charcoal product sold by Kingsford, all the Kingsford briquet products lack the words "100% hardwood" as coniferous woods are the bulk of Kingsford's wood feedstock for charcoal.

Here's my personal favorite 100% hardwood briquet.
