Need Reality Check: Royal Oak smells bad to me.

Hi guys,

This has been bothering me for a while.  I buy the red bag, Royal Oak lump at Wal-Mart.  It is highly rated on

Thing is, it has a smell to me I don't like.  I'm careful to burn the new coal till there's no smoke coming off it, so that's not the problem.

Last night I did a cook and my wife loved it.  I was very unhappy with it.  To me the Royal Oak gives off some sort of "chemical" smell.  Always has, bag after bag after bag.

So I need a reality check.  I think this is just me and I'm gonna have to switch brands.  

Has anyone else experienced this dislike of the Royal Oak aroma?
