  • WGWW, My Ace is $22.95, I'm going to try some other stores for a lower price

  • Been egging for 2 years now and I have not settled on a particular brand yet. RO is OK... I have tried B&B and Cowboys and didn't care for either of them. By looking at these post I guess I will try WGWW next.

  • WGWW is what i have liked the best so far. I got several bags on sale for $11.00 when Ace had an online sale. I use RO from Wal-mart if I dont have Wicked Good. Only BGE dealer in town wants almost $30.00 a bag with tax so I have yet to try theirs.

    Wicked Good locally stocked at an Ace Hardware store or Ozark Oak stocked by my egg dealer.  Both priced about the same per pound (1 20 lb Wicked good bag = 2 10 lb Ozark Oak bags).
  • Anyone know any stores near Spearfish, Wyoming that caries Ozark?

    Probably none. There's not one in middle TN. I called their offices and found it near Little Rock.

    I like Ozark Oak and Natures Own the best for flavor and a hot steady low ash burn. I like WGWW (best bang for the buck in a quality lump) but ordering in advance for in store pick up is what it is (not convenient). I also use Royal Oak regularly because it's cheap and readily available in my area, but the quality IMO is not as good as the above mentioned.

  • Looks like I need to try Ozark and WGWW. Being in SC I imagine Ozark would be hard to come by. Will see what local Ace has
  • henapplehenapple Posts: 14,965
    Seriously. I'm going through AK this week and can pick up as much OO as I can locate...ship you a bag to try. Bags are $5.29 per and whatever shipping is from mid TN.

    WGWW and Ozark Oak for me.


    Boerne, TX

  • Thanks for all the input eggers.  I went to my local dealership and he had WGWW.  He told me that it seems to him that packaging changed on him recently and as he feels around the outside of the bag the briquettes may seem a bit smaller to him.  Anyone familiar with such a change?  Is there a different line of Wicked Good that he may have been carrying previously?

    This what he has now....

    Yes that is a different looking bag. May be there new look? I love there lump!

  • We use WGWW and RO right now.  I REALLY want to go to using Ozark Oak or make our own.

    I think Oak makes the best lump.  I wish I had my egg when I was back in Arkansas...

    Does anyone know how to get Ozark Oak in the Bay Area for a reasonable price at < 15 bags?
