Everytime I go to Wal Mart, I tell my self I am going to buy some Sam's Choice charcoal, because I have used it before and it is good, and it only costs about $5 for 20 lbs. Then I always buy a bag of mesquite wood instead.
Today I even had the charcoal in the cart before I took it out and bought the wood.
Then I got to thinking. Sure, the wood is $5 for only about 10 lbs, seemingly twice the price of briquettes, but the bag is about the same size, and either way it still takes about one chimney full for me to grill.
So if 20 lbs of briquetts and 10 lbs of lump, and 10 lbs of wood are all the same price, which one is cheaper?
Spare me the details on which one is better. I already know what I like.
