20lb bags of 100% Natural Charcoal for $2.99 at Home Depot

Went by Home Depot for a few things today and also found the 20 lb bags of the 100% Natural Hardwood Briquettes by "The Original Charcoal Company" for $2.99 a bag. I have used this charcoal before and really like it. The binder for it is the sap from Yucca trees and not any petroleum. They provide the same burn time and quality as Kingsford without all of the chemicals.

I was also happy to see that the flags that they sell are made in the U.S.A!

Tim

I was surprised yesterday to see that the local Home Depot flier in yesterday's paper did NOT have a charcoal sale. I'll stop by tomorrow and see what's in the store. Thanks Tim.

Tim, did you buy every bag they had? I sure would have. Wish I could find a deal as that. Great score.

Pigs,

I bought 8 bags. Didn't want to get carried away you know.

Gordon,

I haven't noticed any sparking? Are we talking about the same stuff?

I'd have made two trips! I have never used the stuff, but I hear it blows Kingsford out of the water. And has a nice evan heat. I sure would like to put it up aginst Hump Briquettes. Wittdog, John Pen and myself get a deal at the Clinton & Baley food termnal, But $2.99 a 20 pounder? Heck yea Kingsford goes as the same Garbage-Q as KRAFT. Opps, Got a tub of Loyds in the microwave I have to check on. Oh hell I'm out or LP gas.
