Searching for the right fire for my grill

This is the place to ask your BBQ questions, share information, and more.

I've been having a lot of trouble recently finding a good charcoal for my grill. I grill a lot, like every meal almost, and refuse to use anything other than charcoal. I want a high-quality product, but I also don't want to have to constantly be purchasing new charcoal. Anybody got an idea of a charcoal that might suit my needs? Thanks!

All good questions! And to which I'll add:

Do you grill direct, indirect, or both?
Are you looking for high heat for short cooks or lower heats for longer cooks?

Personally I like to use Stubb's briquettes for most everything and either Maple Grove or Royal Oak for lump.

And welcome!
