    Is it lump, Don? Our Menards carries RO also but only briquettes.

    Lump..First time I have seen it there. They usually carry Cowboy junk
  • We get the same 10 lb bags at Wally's here in Virginia. Also made in USA. Unlike others I have never seen it offered at a lower price. Whenever someone posts about the end of season sale I head to the three local stores to see what I can find. Usually two of them just remove the lump from display and the third has pleny available but always at the $5.27 standard price.

    ayup..make sure it's the USA RO, the GFS here carries it but it's either the paraguay or argentina stuff...I've tried both and they are not as good...just as TNWs review says.. :angry:

    My local Menards also carries Royal Oak lump in Sioux Falls, SD. I think they normally only stock lump in the Spring. I saw the first bags maybe come in a month ago. Also, Royal Oak lump is made in four different countries with the made in USA having similar burn performance as the BGE brand. The Menards here stocks the USA but I bought some Made in Paragay somewhere else that doesn't burn as well.
