What's the best Lump Charcoal brand?

I've had good and bad luck with just about every major brand but I've found that Royal Oak, Fire King, and Wegman's brand (local) have been the most consistent as far as size and shape.

I can't stand a bag of little lump slivers/dust that just fall through my Weber's grate, I'd rather have too big of a lump and just break it up.

What are you guys using?
