dealskingsford 2-pack 40 lb charcoal briquettes for $9…


This is a great price. My husband picked up a couple bags earlier this week.


It is absurd we don't run our cars on coal and replace all our Electric grid with Nuclear. Energy problem solved overnight.


My local home depot has a slightly better deal, $9.97 + you can stop by the post office and get a change-of-address kit that has a 10% off coupon (making it 8.98 + tax). If your home depot doesn't have these on sale, they should price match or actually beat the price if you ask for it.

No limit to these at Home Depot, by the way, last memorial day I stocked up on around 500 pounds for &98 out-the-door and they didn't even make a big deal about it, they just helped me load my truck.
Not sure if Lowe's is as easy-going or not on large quantities. Anyway, this stuff lasts for years as long as you keep it dry, I store in in my garden shed out back with no problems, some have been stored as long as 2 years.

In addition, if you don't need as much charcoal, HD has the 2-pack of13.9 lb bags for $6.88 right now, roughly the same price per pound.


@kamikazeken: Nice heads up on the 10% off coupon for Home Depot at the local post office. I'm going to ask for one when I check my mail tomorrow.


@bill7718: remember that these 10% off coupons can usually be used at lowe's or HD, they accept each other's coupons. I also know that Lowe's is supposed to beat competitor's prices by 10%, so if your local HD has the 2x 20lb for $9.97 in their weekly ad, bring it in to lowe's for a price match and get an even better deal by using the 10% coupon on top of that.

exact wording for their price guarantee:
We guarantee our everyday competitive prices. If you find a lower everyday price on an identical item at a local retail competitor, just bring us the competitor's current ad, and we'll beat their price by 10%. If a competitor is offering a percent off discount, we’ll match the final net price the competitor is offering. Our price guarantee does not apply to installation labor, to the competitor's closeout, special order, discontinued, clearance, liquidation or to damaged items. Limited to reasonable quantities. Visit store for complete details.*


ummm, no charcoal use here....GAS grills only! Hate the mess/cleanup... Ya'll can have my share of this deal...ENJOY!! LOL


Alternatively, if your local home depot isn't doing the 2x20 for $9.97, then just bring in the lowe's ad and get them to beat the lowe's price by 10%... here's home depot's nearly identical price guarantee:

If any competitor tries, we'll beat their price by 10%. Guaranteed.*
*If you find a current lower price on an identical, in-stock item from any local retailer, we will match the price and beat it by 10%. Excludes special orders, bid pricing, volume discounts, open-box merchandise, labor and installation, sales tax, rebate and free offers, typographical errors and online purchases.

this will only work if HD isn't already beating the lowe's price, of course.

yeah, it's sounding complicated, but if you're getting a large quantity, it's very worthwhile.


@briansmac: I use both. The flavor when using charcoal is just better, but the gas is convenient when you're in a hurry. I also use a chimney to start the coals, it fits right on the gas side burner of this particular grill so I don't have to use starter fluid.

I have this particular grill, and it's been going strong for 3 years now. They only cost $199, and even less if you use the 10% mover's coupon.


Great price great product. Did you know that Henry Ford was partially responsible for the success of Kingsford? He gave Mr King the scrap wood from his horseless carriage factory.. Mr King made charcoal.


@kamikazeken: That thing is a beautiful monstrosity. Who makes it and what's the model number??


I pretty much stopped using Kingsford charcoal once I learned that it is made of mostly compressed leftover mined coal (basically all the dust and crap that they can't sell to the power plants), complete with carcinogens and heavy metals, etc.

much more prefer actual charcoal made from charred wood. lot less nasty junk, and better flavor in the food.

either way, if you make sure you have a chimney starter to get your charcoal going. once you know how to use a chimney, it's easier than fluid, and makes for less petrochemical flavor.


Last year about this time, I bought a pallet. They grinned, and used the fork lift to load it in the back of my pickup.Figure I'll be using the same pallet load for the next couple years.


@mtn3pitt: CharBroil... I picked up the same one at Lowe's on sale for $199, usually $299.


I prefer to cook my meat with propane and propane accessories.


Just in the nick of time for the end of summer!


It seems that both Lowe's and Home Depot often put these 2 packs on sale at a good price around each of the summer "grilling" Holidays (Labor Day, Memorial Day, 4th of July). I try to stock up for the rest of the year.


@bluejester: Coach Landry would be proud (just don't buy from Thatherton).


2-13.9# @ 6.88 is actually the better deal--you'll save nearly .87 on 500# ;)


the brand is NOT charbroil, it's a "char griller" brand grill, it's called the duo, and you can also get a nice custom-fit cover for it, and even a smoker box that you can attach to the right side of the charcoal part of the grill.

THE ONLY complaint I have about this grill is that because the two halves are so close together, I couldn't attach my electric rotisserie to either the gas OR charcoal side, and I love my rotisserie tri-tip.

You can get it at Lowe's or Orchard Supply.
