Lump charcoal prices

I picked up a 20 pound bag of NatureGlo lump charcoal yesterday, from a local restaurant supply house. The last one I bought was $8 and change. Now, the price has gone over $12. Has anyone else seen such a sharp jump in prices?

Home Depot has Cowboy here but based on the crummy reviews, I've never even noted the price. I get this at True Value for my BGE, but it's $17/ 20# bag. I like it and NakedWhiz gave it a good review.


I'm doing my annual Kingsford stock up today. Lowes has two 18# bags for $9.97 ($0.277/#) and Home Depot has two 21.6# bags fro $13.97 ($0.323/#). Guess where I'm going? I find the staff at Lowes much more helpful and friendly anyway.

Funny thing is I can buy Hump lump cheaper from the terminal than direct from the guy who is the distributer! What's the deal with that?

Ace hardware opened up a block from my house. They have cowboy lump, 20 lbs for $9.99. I have not used it, but I picked up a bag. Is this a good price?
