Here in Bay City I can find the following lumps .
WGWW in a small supply($24). RO / GFS and Cowboy at the big box. KJ now at Ace. 
During my work travels I do get out to most of northern MI , N of I-69.
Might do some side trips if the price is right.

Thanks ,Bill

  • What is WGWW?  Is it any better than GFS (what I use)?  And where do you find it?  I'm in Lapeer

  • I buy Lazzari from Herman's Boy in Rockford (probably a drive for you but worth visiting if you're ever on the west side of the state).  I get 2 bags at a time, one mesquite and one oak.  They're $25 for 2 bags, IIRC.

    How is GFS?  Which do you buy from there?

    GFS lump is made by RO.  Same good stuff, different bag.  My daughter is starting school soon and her school is near a Menards.  When they put RO on sale, I'll cash in!

    I didn't know that. What's the smokiness like using mesquite lump?

  • To me it is a very mild smoke. Not overpowering at all
  • Thanks! I'll order a couple of bags and give it a whirl.

    Going to get 4 bags for me and 2 neighbors. Heck at that price I can give a little as to taste or burn rate.
