Big Green Egg - EGGhead Forum - The Ultimate Cooking Experience...
April showers bring...National BBQ Month! Are you ready for a month full of briskets, pulled pork and chicken wings? We hope so, because it’s almost here! Keep an eye out for some of our favorite BBQ recipes we’ll be sharing with you throughout the month of May.

Big Green Egg headquarters has moved - come visit our new showroom and check out the museum and culinary center too! 3786 DeKalb Technology Parkway, Atlanta, GA 30340

RO lump now available at HD (at least at the one in my 'hood).

For those who don't like to shop at Wal-Mart for whatever particular reason, I just saw 17.6 lbs bags of RO lump at HD for $12.97+tax. That is the same price as Wal-Mart. Some months ago, Wal-Mart marked those bags down to $9.99+tax, so it was cheaper for a little while.

The bbq section at my HD has improved - they now have big bags of apple, cherry, and maybe even peach wood chunks in stock.

    I haven't been to HD since I got the stuff to winterize the yard, but I really hope that this is a corporate wide move.  Would love to not have to go to Wal-Mart.

    Edit: Listed on their website and is listed at every HD near me.

    Our Home Depot had royal oak a couple months ago. I almost fell out when I saw it! I went back last weekend and it was all gone. Do you know if all Home Depots are going to start carrying Royal Oak lump?

    At Harley Davidson? Wow I bet that's pricy.

    I have seen it at one before out in Ft Worth and I have seen it at a Tractor Supply also. 12.97 for 18lbs

    I haven't seen it with my own eyes yet.  On their website it's listed as "only available in-store" and then you can check your nearby stores inventory.  I hope this is something permanent and not some big corporate buy at the end of the season and once it's gone it's gone.

    There were 3 bags at my store about an hour ago. Don't know if they will stock it regularly. I didn't see any Cowboy lump anywhere, nor their house brand (True Cue?).

    @TUTTLE871 : Home Depot... where you can buy half the store for what a Harley costs :)

    Our Lowes carries the 17.6lb blue bag RO year long, same price in store and online.  Every year around Canada Day (July 1) it's 1/2 price, free UPS shipping included. This year I ordered a pile online, it was funny to see half the brown truck filled with huge boxes of loosely packed RO bags!

    @Canugghead - I wonder if people like us scare other people? For instance, when Kingsford goes on sale at HD, Wal-Mart etc a few times during the year, bbq freaks roll in and buy pallets of charcoal, clean every store in the county out, and the likes. What must "normal" people think?

  • I saw that the Home Depot by me (east of Dallas) was selling RO too. Unfortunately they were sold out

  • Thank you so much for the heads up. Ordered it online and will pick it up in the am.

    thanks a lot for info. I've been buying it at Tractor Supply, and it seems every bag I get is crushed up and pretty small pieces. I just checked online and it showing every Home Depot around me has it in stock.

  • Yet another reason why national carriers should carry national things and regional should carry regional things...

  • The home depot website also shows now in stock at my local store--greenville, sc.  Thanks for the heads up, I prefer the larger RO bags, seems to have larger pieces.

  • My HD stocks RO they sell it for $12.97 for the 17.6 pound bad which is't bad but when Wally world has it on sale it's $9.99  I have almost 14 bags in stock so I think I will be fine and make it thru the winter

    Good suggestion to use the HD site, it is easy to check your local store. 8Kg bags for $12.97 with 8 bags in stock in the Bellingham Washington store - must be chain wide. Also noted Lowe's has the "now improved" 20# Cowboy for $13.99. 
    Today is shopping in America day for this Canuck, might just throw a bag or two in the trunk.

    Thanks for the head's up-as @Skiddymarker notes-must be chain-wide as it's in stock at all the local Kentucky Jelly stores. And as a personal issue-I will not shop at Wally World so this definitely helps with some stock to use around the Rockwood.

    Just picked up 6 bags at my local HD. I am close to 500lbs of lump in my car hold now. 

    Please don't tell my wife.

    Yep I like the bigger bags too for the same reason. Central Market lump has nice big pieces even though it comes in a smaller bag though, but thats the exception.

    You're a gentleman egger, sir. When will you be in Austin? I'm absolutely swamped until Nov 18th, then out of town for Thanksgiving. If you're coming to Austin anytime in that window, I would try to drive up, see the sights and grab some double O. At the least, you should show up at Cen-Tex's place and drink his beer.

  • The little town we just moved to has a mom&pop grocer that keeps a strong stock of RO 18 lbs bags for 9.99 every day. I've become close to the owner and hoping winter stocking won't be a problem.

    The Marietta, GA H.D. store shows 37 ea 17.6 lb bags RO in stock for $12.97 ea, which is 73 cents a pound.  My local Wally-World only ever has the 8.8 lb bags for $6.97, which breaks down to 79 cents a pound.  Soooo, greater convenience of the 17 lb bag and a few cents a pound cheaper...can't beat that!
