Lump I've never used...!

A friend and former High School classmate of mine that moved to Edmonton, Alberta CA is back in the states and came to my town with a bag of the prized Maple Leaf Hardwood lump! I'm so excited to try it, I've heard that it is the King of lump charcoal. Supposed to have a "heavenly" smell and flavor that it adds to the meats... I can't wait to try it. My fear is I'll love it and want more! I've been waiting for this since last fall ! I wish they would start selling it in the states again... does anyone know why the stopped?

The folks at Wicked Good (laralee distributors) used to import and sell it, supposedly they can't sell it anymore. Boo!

If you have a Maple Leaf Hardwood lump story I'd love to hear it!



  • I met the Wicked Good folks when I called them to find out where I could buy Maple Leaf some years ago.

    And, I agree, it has a distinct flavor and burns very hot. If I recall WG said the Maple Leaf folks said they couldn't produce enough for their own distributors much less the states as well. So, like good Canuk's they cut us off.

    So, enjoy the Maple Leaf while you can.
