This is not going to be applicable to most on here but if you are in the UK and are looking for charcoal CPL Restaurant grade charcoal is very good i usually order 24kg form ebay for about £25.

 

I was recommended it on here and dont use any other charcoal unless i run out then i use the £5.50 lumpwood charcoal from Tesco.

I've had the good fortune to be a new kamado user blessed with @ckreef and his amazing lump comparison thread. I went straight to Fogo Super Premium for my first long-ish (7 hour) short plate cook and honestly, as long as i can continue to get the stuff I'm not going to mess around with anything else. It reacted almost telepathically to the temps I wanted and stayed rock-steady throughout the entire run. Only used 30% of the load as well with the smallest amount of ash you can imagine. The wife loved the aroma it produced before it reached the oak and pecan....and I know where my bread is buttered.

 

I got the SP and Quebracho while they were on sale. The Quebracho is being delivered this week and I'm rubbing my hands together in glee trying to figure out what I'm going to cook with it first.

You gone and spoiled yourself now :)

 

Once you start using the good stuff it's really hard to go back to the other lump. When you account for the extra burn time you get, the price difference isn't as big as it appears at first. 

 

No worries Fogo isn't going anywhere. Once you figure out the shipping schedule to your address you just have to order a few days beforehand to account for that schedule.

@ckreef nailed it. I ordered direct from Fogo since Seattle is a charcoal wasteland. It arrived in about 3 business days which is absurdly quick for a parcel to get form Florida to the PNW. Quick/free shipping + quality product = return customer.....

 

...and the ribs were freaking amazing. :)

I like large chunks of lump, but this was ridiculous.  I see now from the photos that I should have gotten a picture of the diameter as well.  it was close to 8 inches.  This was from a bag of Kamado Joe Big Block.  I was able to split it to make it work.
