RKB - saw my friend's custom 3" 16 SxS today. He was just shooting standard ammo, but he was smoking the 5 stand - not bad for an old guy.......chokes IM, made by Sabatti..........

Got me to thinking (THREAD DRIFT, but it's my thread)

What if you took a nice 20 gauge frame SxS and made it a 2 barrel set; 1 set in 16 and one set in 28..................weight about 6#4 and 5#14 or so.....

That might be the ultimate upland gun.......

Sounds sweet - also sounds way above my spending limit!

I'd like to bring this post back from the dead and say it's that time of the year again and now my only problem is how many bags to buy? 6? 10?

This is a pretty-much annual sale lately (and quite a deal!). I get enough to re-stock my supply used since last Independence Day. I keep 10 bags on hand. I have a Weber kettle for charcoal and a Weber Spirit 210 (natural gas model) for convenience. I prefer the flavor using charcoal but love the speed of gas when I'm too hungry or tired out to wait for charcoal to heat up.

can anyone here remember when the only place you could buy Kingsford Charcoal was at your local Ford Dealership ? we lived in a small IL town in the early 1950's and remember going to the Ford garage to buy our charcoal.
If you want an interesting read .. check out how Kingsford came into being.

Always got our at the local milk/gas store (forerunner of your basic C-store). We would get an entire semi load and we unloaded it bag by bag.

Seems they are having the sale 2-3 times per year now - Memorial Day, 4th of July and Labor Day. At the price they are selling it at, it beats Costco/Sam's by almost half. I usually but 10 2-packs when I stock up.

Thumbs up Charcoal

I only use REAL charcoal-- not the brickets- Easier to light, burns hotter, can provides better flavor. JMHO of course.

I used nothing but pure mesquite charcoal for over 25 years, not briquettes, but chunks.

Finally got tired of disposing of all the ashes from those years and went to Propane.

I do miss the smell and taste, though. I've thought about putting some mesquite chips in the propane grill but haven't done it.
