Jealous Devil is one of the premium brands out there when it comes to charcoal. It's hard to find in stores near me so I have to order it online. Amazon has it on sale right now at nearly 20% off at just under $40 dollars, it normally retails around $50.
I pick up Royal Oak brand at the local store for my every day pork butts but if you are cooking premium meats you may want to grab a bag of this and give it a try. So for you next Prime Grade brisket or Wagyu fire it up with some Jealous Devil. While I've had rocks in my Royal Oak, I've not experienced the other debris such as metal and cans that others have. The bags of JD have large chunks and not much dust like Royal Oak does.
Is Jealous Devil worth is vs Royal Oak at nearly four times the price? It does seem to last longer and burn better. I keep a bag on hand for special occasion cooks. By a bag and test it out for yourself. Head over to the Fuel page for some comparison videos and more reviews.
