Default Charcoal- hardwood lump or kingsford type?

Just bought some pure hardwood lump charcoal as it was about the same price (1 dollar more)as Kingsford pressed coal/wood charcoal briquets and I was curious. Saw someone on TV claiming how much better the pure lump stuff is which is why I bought it but I can't tell the difference. Steaks tasted the same though the stuff did seem to light better(smaller odd shaped pieces is probably why). Anyone notice a difference?Whats your favorite charcoal? Do any of you notice a difference between the two if you use a chimney to start both instead of lighter fluid? As I said, just curious if anyone else has pondered this. Take care.

Cowboy lump charcoal here for years. I can tell the difference between it and briquets. I use a chimney for lighting, no fluid. One other advantage is the amount of ash that is left is a lot less than briquets.

Hardwood lump any day, easier to light, no lighter fluid, more re-use of charcoal, better flavor I think.
