Yep, I forgot to mention a charcoal 'chimney' to light the coals with; haven't bought lighter fluid in years, better smell and taste without the fluid.

Found a collapsable charcoal chimney at my local RV supply store. Kingsford brand & folds into a compact size for easier storage; just fold it up & put it back into the box it came in. Plus it works very well too.

I had almost stopped using charcoal until the lump charcoal became readily available. It might just be me but I think the Kingsford has a taste to it that I do not like. I was used to cooking with oak when I lived in Wisconsin but that is not real available here in NM.

Royal Oak or Green Egg wood charcoal is the only way to go.

Thanks to everyone that shared advise. Sounds like kingsford is a crowd faveorite. Prior to posting I got a bag of lump. Just cooked dinner Italian sausages and corn on the cob. Turned out great. Thanks again.

It's not just you. I does taste kind of "funky". I'm not sure if its the borax or the limestone, but it's especially noticeable with fish.

Lump for me!

I've actually never grilled corn on the cob before, but sounds delicious. Do you blanch it first or any kind of special prep? About how long does something like that take and how much heat do you put on?

That DOES sound good! Grilled corn, peppers n steak. So just like that.. no soaking or de-silking or anything. I think I can manage that.

I was heading down the hill tomorrow to do a water and produce run anyway. I'll give'r a go.

Thanks for sharing, Dave!
