There are three charcoal sales that you can pretty much count on year after year. Memorial Day, Fourth of July and Labor Day. These sales generally produce 50% off sales and if you even grill 1/4 of the times I do, it’s worth it to stock up.
Regular prices on Kingsford are $10 for an 18.6 lb bag of charcoal which comes to .537 cents per lb.
For comparisons sake I’ll do the math for you.
Home Depot Kingsford Sale 2×18.6= 37.2lbs $9.88 divided by 37.2lbs=.265 cents per lb
Lowes Royal Oak Briquettes Sale $4 divided 15.4lbs= .259 cents per lb
Lowes Kingsford Sale Same as HD- 2×18.6= 37.2lbs $9.88 divided by 37.2lbs=.265 cents per lb
Also there are $15 off of $50 coupons out there on the internet for Lowes, so if you get that discount code and use it, you’d need to get 6 two packs. That’s $59.28-$15 coupon = $44.28 12 bags x 18.6= 223.2 lbs $44.28 divided by 223.28= .198 cents per lb

At the Dollar Store You can find some good stuff for BBQ.
For one, the 30 pack of aluminum foil sheets are great for lining your kettle when cooking fatty foods like chicken thighs or bacon. For 3.3 cents per sheet it’s an easy way to keep your kettle clean and avoid grease fires. At the Dollar Store at Gloucester Crossing they also have a steakhouse seasoning for $1 that is pretty much a straight knock-off of Montreal steak seasoning that costs around $5. Total no-brainers. I also bought a Memphis style BBQ rub that is on a pork butt that has a couple hours left on my pit. If it’s good I’m going back today and am going to buy about twenty bottles. It smells great. But I’ll update you once I try it for myself.
I paid $10 more for mine that I’ve got all sealed up in it’s original packaging. $48.94 is a bargain for one of the coolest color Smokey Joe’s ever offered in the States.

Got a box of 50 of these for $12.99 on Amazon, way cheaper than what you get at the supermarket. The cheapest alternatives I see at the Supermarket are a dollar or more per disposable pan. These come out to less than 24 cents per pan. Here’s the link on Amazon
Here they are in use with the potato volcanos-
As you can see the foil pans are saving a messy clean up from the dripping melted cheese and bacon fat.
That comes to.2497 cents per lb and is just a little bit better than the big sale they had at Lowes and Home Depot last weekend.
I loaded up, natch.
26 cents a lb will be the cheapest by far you’ll see it so if you’re gonna buy some for the summer, now is the time to stock up. Now through Sunday
If you do any amount of Charcoal Grilling This Is The Time To Load Up!
