This is great charcoal. Did some research into lump charcoal brands after having less than favorable experiences with some others. This is highly regarded and well reviewed on all the smoking sites I read, so decided to try it. I love it. I have been recommending it to everyone who will listen. Burns long and hot with great flavor on the food and great aroma in the driveway, it is easy to start and has no artificial stuff like briquettes. Finally got my local ace to carry it after showing the owner the receipts for all my online purchases of it.

I have use royal oak for years and pretty much love everything about it. it lights fast, has a nice smokey aroma where i never have to think about adding any more hard wood for added smoke, it burns hot and leaves very little ash. the only other i have used besides RO was cowboy which i did not like nearly as well.i bought the wicked good mainly because of all the positive reviews here and elsewhere and it was on sale so why not. well when you compare wg and ro lump to lump the wg is like 3 times denser however i don`t think that necessarily translates into 3x longer cooking time plus it is more of a neutral not as smokey aroma as the ro so all in all i still like the ro better. i just wish it came in bigger bags around here and it had more large pieces in every bag. so wg is good not great for me and i will have to mix the 2 together till the wg is gone.

    Just bought a Komado style cooker and instructions recommend using lump charcoal. I used briquettes a few times and tried Wicked Good Charcoal. I've used the same original load 3 times now and still have quite a bit left in the cooker. This lump is very long lasting.

                  Wasn't on the showroom floor but my local Ace was more than happy to have it shipped in. Store manager even bought a bag after I explained how it burns hotter, cleaner, longer, and has bigger pieces than the typical charcoal lump you might find. Much rather buy this over the Big Green Egg lump wood. The Big Green Egg lump wood is bagged by Royal Oak which isn't bad but you are overpaying for what you get. It's the same exact lump you would find in a Royal Oak bag without having to spend the extra $7 dollars to say Big Green Egg name on it. Wicked Good is a much better product for the cost between the two

                      I always stock up on this coal when it's on sale. I then have it shipped to my local Ace store. This coal is just top notch. It blows anything away that you would get at the local store.

                      I really taste the difference in the meats that I grill when using this coal. You get a nice smokey flavor added to your meats with no bitter aftertaste.

                      I like the fact that you get small, medium and large chunks of coal in each bag. The coal isn't hard to light and it really produces high heat if that's what your'e looking for. I highly recommend.

                        I used to use the preformed briquets until now. This brand burns hot and for a long time, much longer than briquets. I have a Brinkmann and am accustomed to going through charcoal quite quickly. With Wicked I went through ~1/8 a bag smoking a 14lb turkey on Thanksgiving. Needless to say this is my fave and Ace is definitely the place to buy it.

                                I have used the status quo charcoal for my barbecue/smoker and sometimes my food tastes like lighter fluid, we have no idea what it is composed of (the true ingredients), with
                                the Wicked Good brand, it does not have the terrible smell and bad fumes and it does not overwhelm the food with an unfavorable taste. Wicked Good is made out of true wood products. Why make your family sick when you do not have to.

                                      One of the best lump charcoals I have used. Gives off a great smell while adding a subtle smoke flavor. I used this in my smokers, but I think you would have to break up quite a few of the bigger chunks to use for grilling.

                                      The charcoal burns well without the "chemical" odors from most briquettes. Also most of the pieces were of reasonable size and not small lumps or dust. Definitely worth it.

                                            We do not have a big selection of lump in my area so I was happy to find out that I could order this online. THe pieces of lump were nice size to huge. I will have to break a few pieces because they are so big. Very dense lump that burns long and hot.

                                                This is an excellent wood charcoal that is better than the brands in this area that are commonly available. It burns a hot and clean and leaves less ash than most.

                                                          I have looked here on the west coast for Wicked Good Charcoal for a long time. Finally found it at two different locations- like magic. This is the best lump I have ever used and it lasts so long that it can usually be reused 2-3 times. Best value for the money. Don't let the other pretty bags and high prices fool you. This stuff comes out of Maine and it is the real McCoy!

                                                            Lots of good sized pieces and very little chips/dust. Although this brand is a little more difficult to light than most other brands, once you get it going it burns a long time with excellent heat. For long low and slow cooks, this is the preferred lump to use.
