.....and I can stop any time I want to.

Ha, there was a guy there with one bag of RO in his cart, and he was reading the label on some sort of briquettes.  He saw me pick up a bag, and told me he had never used it, and asked if it was good.  I talked to him while I loaded all the remaining bags in two carts.

Bonus pic, I have shown my cook zone in awhile.

    Didn't leave any extras for him, huh? Glad we don't have to stockpile lump here in Dallas. I just buy 3 or 4 bags at a time and I'm good for a few weeks.

    There were about 10 bags on an upper shelf.  I am not sure he knew what he was buying.  They have it sometimes, then the next time you go in they don't.  I also figure it won't be any cheaper next time, and the fewer trips the less gas.

    Methinks I'm not cooking enough.   :(

  • Doc, you cook under that overhang?

    Yes, there are smoke stains on it, but that is the only problem.

    I like RO. It burns good. Good price. Some say it is the same thing as Big Green Egg charcoal but I don't see how. RO pops a lot and BGE charcoal does not. If it is the same but smaller pieces then I wonder why it pops so much? I love the BGE charcoal but it is just too much money. I wonder why they don't go down on their prices? RO is definitely convenient at Walmart like you said when they have it. Hard the beat the price of RO.

    I'm just glad you don't have 37 cats running around or we'd have to call that Hoarders TV show ;)

    You know a Royal Oak facility burned down several weeks ago, they might be hitting you up for some stock! 

    Have a great weekend.

    I swore I would only have a few bags at a time, and then I read about the fire.  Decided to be ready to get through the next couple of months in case supply dried up for awhile.

    I tried my first bag of wicked good tonight and was very impressed. I keep telling my wife how much I liked it and I don't think she gives a rip. I was perplexed when I pulled out two stump size chunks.
