Lump sources near Osage Beach, MO?

Taking the family vacation near Osage Beach, MO in July and really want to to take a egg with me, but don't want to take the charcoal in order to save space.  Anyone in the area know where I can get lump when I get there?  Just trying to plan after discussions at Easter dinner. Thanks.

    My uncle runs a electrical company at the lake. I'll ask him to check around and find a spot or two for some supply.

    Thanks @Solson005 I'd appreciate it. This is my biggest expenditure of the year on this trip and really don't want to load the charcoal to go down there. If I can get pics of where we are staying I'll throw them up, it's pretty crazy for me and my modest living.

    We have rented some cool places when we had a family reunion there a few summers ago. My uncle works on some amazing houses and docks. I'm trying to convince him to get a egg. We took my small camping with him and he was pretty impressed.

    These guys should have lump for you, they sell eggs. But I will still ask my uncle.

    Sure, happy to help. 

    Lake Sunrooms is in Sunrise Beach

    Lake Patio and Pool Tables is in Osage Beach 

    But I think those two might just have BGE lump.

    Forgive me if I ask you this again sometime around the 4th of July, I think the house we have is for the week after.  Appreciate it.

    I emailed the eggCarten gentleman where is he based at to your knowledge? Wondering how early I should order one before the trip. Does he do paypal or another form of payment?

    Houston area, he just does check or money order or that's all when I got mine. It only took a couple days to get to Oklahoma. He had them ready to ship.

    Judging from your posts you feel like it is a very indispensable item?

    Yes I was never comfortable carrying it with one hand on the hinge and one in the draft door or on the bottom. Now I travel with my egg almost every week so it was a easy choice for me. 

    If you don't end up getting one I would at least get a potlifter

    Hope vacation is a good one. That house look like my guest house. Joking. I could definitely chill there. I am surprised they for have an outdoor kitchen with an egg for you.

  • The wife and I were down there last fall and stopped in a grill store along the main road through town.  I asked about BGE and got a deer in headlights look.  They may have had lump, but I didn't ask.  You might try a dealer locate on the BGE site.

    There is an Ace Hardware located there. If they don't stock it, you could order It and pick it up at the store. From Ace you could get Wicked Good, Grill Mark (royal oak, same as bge for half the price) or cowboy.

    @Chubbs no egg there I will have to take one of mine but don't feel like cooking on a Gasser for a week with that nice a setup.

    That is quite the place! I'm sure you will have a great week and being able to bring your egg will make it even better! My aunt uses vrbo all the time up and down the coast of California and just mentioned that site to me a couple months ago. We try to find homes or condos to stay at so we dont have to double our vacation budget to eat out for every meal.
