Recently I was given two small 1lb. bags of Jack Daniels grilling charcoal as a gift. I quickly emptied out my hopper and threw these precious gems in to see how they cooked. The burgers tasted great but when I found out that 1lb. is about $10 on amazon, those burgers became a once in a lifetime experience. I highly recommend my second attempt which also tasted great and was a much more economical way to use a special bag of pellets.
