I just opened the third bag of this stuff in the past year or so, and it has been the best lump charcoal I have found, by far. Consistently big to almost too big pieces and very few fines, and it looks like it's made from real wood, not lumber scraps like the cowboy brand. I don't know where it comes from, but I've read Royal Oak. It is way better than any Royal Oak lump I've had. Simple Truth is Kroger's 'all natural' store brand, if you're not familiar with it. I've seen it for $6 on sale.
