The charcoal is sold by volume, not weight. Although Char-Broil says it contains 11 pounds, this is simply not true. I bought 8 boxes. Only one of the boxes contained 11 pounds. The other seven, were less than 11 pounds, the lightest box being 9.7 pounds. Also, this product's packaging is wrong about the volume of charcoal contained in the box. The box says it contains 1.18 cubic feet of charcoal. If you carefully measure the inside dimensions of the box and do the math, you will find that the volume of the box itself is only 1.05 cubic feet. This is 11% smaller than the advertised volume. Further, if you take the charcoal out of the bag and place it in the box, the level of the charcoal only comes up to about 2 inches of the top. So, there is simply no possible way that this product contains the advertised volume of charcoal.
