I gotta tell you these Wooly Woods are the bomb.
on October 8, 2017
I gotta tell you these Wooly Woods are the bomb. Read about them online and thought I'd give em a try. NOT compressed sawdust and wax. Not wax plugs like some others. The wood is like long thin spiral strips all compressed together with some sort of wax like binding that is flammable. Each one is pretty large, so you can easily get away with just 1. They light very easily and burn longer than others I tried. I know $19 bucks seems expensive on the surface, BUT there are 36 in a bag. (.53 ea) One (1) will lite my Large Big Green Egg lump charcoal no problem. I use 2 if I'm in a bigger hurry to get cooking. Primo starters are $14 for 24 count (.58 ea) and I use 2. BGE starters are $17 for 24 count (.71 ea). The Weber 7417 FireStarters are my 2nd favorite mainly due to price $4 for 24 count (.17 ea), but you always need 2 or 3. They are in a sealed punch card and can't dry out or they turn to powder. They are kinda fragile. They are less convenient for me to punch out of a blister pack, taking care to not damage the one next to it. At this point I don't see myself experimenting with any others. These Woolywood's are economical, bigger and work better that the others. So I've finally found the right lump charcoal starters for me. ;-)
