Where do you buy yours in the D/FW area? Years ago, BBQ-Galore had a store brand that was clean, uniform chunks of charcoal made from unprocessed wood (not milled lumber) that would burn, leaving virtually no ashy residue. They quit making it.
Since then, no matter the price, I've been unable to find anything equal - its all crap. I find every thing from rocks, to blackened baseboard runs, but mostly the problems is that there is no uniformity in "(non)chunk" size which can vary from small shards to foot-plus long limbs.
I'd love to find some that is 2 - 3" inch dia. chunks. Any suggestions?
