Was at Costco in Montreal (Marché Central) today.
Can you believe they had the nerve to increase the price of Basques (green n white bag) maple lump charcoal??
$13.99 now, vs $12.99 (CAN which is ~$10.25 USD) for 17.5lbs!
Perhaps they noticed the prices ppl r willing to pay for lump on this forum or elsewhere?

Seems like a great price to me. Out west here the last time I bought that stuff I'm sure it was over $20 for the 17.5lb bag

Was in the closest hardware store for some angle grinder discs today and spotted they had broilking lump $10 a bag if you bought 5 bags, works out to $1.28per lb.Easy figuring for me drive 1.5 hrs one way or 10 minutes   to get the same price.Now next question for the canadians as americans likely can't get maple leaf brand ,do you prefer maple leaf over broilking?

I stick with the Basques red bag lump @ Lowes. I really like this stuff and @$18 a bag its as good as it gets in Western Canada.

I think one reason why the Costco green white Basques maple lump is either more expensive or not available in Alberta etc may be bc of the transportation costs frm Quebec towards out west.
It's made here in Quebec  bc of abundance of hardwood maple trees.
I think most of the forest trees in Alberta area are generally sap trees (evergreens etc), not hardwood - and lump charcoal isn't made from sap wood.

Bumping a somewhat old thread.

I recently tried a bag of Royal Oak lump (blue bag) that I picked up from Canadian Tire.  I may be crazy since I have the impression that it's not well loved but I really like it.  Seems to burn cleaner than the Maple Leaf I had been using and I like the taste better.
