Grove Charcoal fans...

Have you noticed any significant price increases at your lump charcoal sources? I know a retailer who is considering stocking it, but was quoted per bag for about what I was getting it for retail.

    Found a 20 lb bag at a local hardware store -- 20.99. Last year the same size bag was 13.99. It's good stuff, but I'll find Weekend Warrior for close to 20.99.

    Can't find it around here.  Saw a trailer of it at Brat Days in Sheboygan last year and I wanted to steal it :) 

    Does anyone find it anywhere except that area?

    If you have access to a Piggly Wiggly, they'll either have it, or can order it for you.

    I'm getting 20# bags of Grove for $12.95.  About a year ago it was $12.50.  Can't complain.
    I haven't used any other lump for years...love this stuff...
    I get mine from a local restaurant supply store.

    That's the thing.  It's fantastic stuff, and I was getting it for $13.99.  However, if it's significantly going up in price, well, I can get Weekend Warrior for close to those prices.

    About 5 minutes ago I picked up a 20 lb bag of Grove at the Pig in Oostburg, WI (about 6 miles from Grove's home base in Cedar Grove, WI, $15.29.  The Ace Hardware store might be a buck or two less.  Buddy of mine's dad owns Grove Charcoal, here and there I will get a couple of free bags, usually torn bags sometimes partials, but hey free is free.

    Good friend to have!  I'd take torn bags all day long.

    I'm lucky, I don't have to "stock" up, Grove is available year round...even in winter when outside temp is hovering in the single digits.

    I only live 26 miles away from Cedar Grove Wisconsin...so I should be able to get it..but the Pig doesn't carry it in winter.
