Looks like Firecraft stopped selling Rockwood lump. This was my current favorite. Not sure what to do now. Lump is getting more and more expensive. Any suggestions?

I've been getting B&B at Walmart.  Good overall lump.  Bad ratings on Naked Whiz but many of their ratings are dated, this one goes back to 2004.  things change.

Also been liking Cowboy Southern Style lump at Costco on the cheap.  I like it for grilling, starts quick, burns hot and has a nice flavor.  Does pop a little that some complain about but heck, it's a wood fire after all.  No review of Cowboy southern style on Naked Whiz.

They really need to update their testing and ratings.  Best thing to do is try what's available in your area and see what you like.  Give the B&B a shot.

for low & slow if I'm doing an overnighter I'll use Royal Oak.  I find I get rock solid temp control with it whereas with the other two above I get a steady slow rise.

Hard to say really without trying, perhaps hard to say even with trying. Lump performance consistency is just not as simple as comparing controlled processed and packaged Pop Tarts. The ratings difference could be the difference between woods used in production (source country), manufacturing process (one brand more baked, one less so), reviewer tilt, a 'good bag' vs a 'bad bag', moisture problems, handling or some combination.

Consistency and quality control is another factor. One brand of lump I love is Maple Leaf, a blend of maple, birch and beech made in Quebec. But that brand does not have good consistency. 1 bag is logs, 1 bag is fines, 1 bag is awesome medium lumps ... and so on.

Dragon Breath has never let me down despite the change in country of origin (from USA to Mexico). Quite consistent quality.

You live in Texas, try some mesquite lump. Categorically, mesquite lump is my all time favorite. I love the smell, taste, heat and burn time. Sadly, it's hard to come by in Canada but in Texas I think you should have no trouble finding it.

Thanks for the input guys. I will just have to go back to hunting and pecking. It was nice having a source to buy from without hunting around. I have seen the B&B at Walmart so I will have to give it a try.

I did find this at Walmart and ordered some. Free shipping over $35 bucks.
