When I was buying my own lump charcoal, I was buying B&B from Academy Sports and Royal Oak from Walmart.  Those worked great for me and I would go back to them immediately if I needed to.

Why "Specifically Kamado Joe"? A kamado is a kamado is a kamado.    But to answer your question - anything Fogo sells.

I load up on KJ Big Block when it's available at Costco (only during the road shows) and supplement with Royal Oak, but only the ones that say US made on the bag. My typical setup is to put some KJ on the bottom, which is great for airflow thanks to its size and burns cleanly, then the cheaper RO on top of that. I find RO a little smokey and less consistent but it's a good price, usually has some decent sized chunks, lights easily and burns hot.

 

There's a thread in the accessories subforum comparing different brands. Unfortunately, I don't know how to get some of them near me and others are quite expensive but there's good information there from ckreef who's been very generous with his time.

As CK said...anything Fogo. Close second I’d KJ big block. Then Diamond, wicked good, rockwood.    In some applications Diamond is bear, but I gave my “ overall” list.  Royal oak is a great every day fuel.

El Diable, probably the same as Best of the West. A 40# bag at Costco is $14. It's all Mesquite, burns long and hot.

I use it in a couple of cookers - an offset, a Santa Maria grill as well as my Kamados. Works great!

I am loving FOGO right now.  I bought a few bags of the super premium a couple weeks ago when they were on sale.  Some of the pieces are ridiculously big.  But I have a dull hatchet for making good sizes.  There was almost no dust in the bag, and it burns clean with very little pure white ash.
