BUSTED! confession of a lump junkie

OK - I admit I became a hoarder of lump several years ago when I had no access to a steady supply. I swore I'd never be in that position again. Of course my wife thinks I'm nuts as I keep a stash of at least 360 pounds year around. There is peace in the valley as she's gotten accustomed to what one wall of the garage looks like. Well at summer's end like a squirrel I hid another 10 bags in the trunk of my car. Today I got caught retreiving one from my secret stash!

  • I also like to use royal oak. I sometimes will just use the lump without adding wood and still get nice smoke. I am down to two bags right now. Guess I better stock up for the winter.

    LOL, I need to show that to hubby, I'll seem sane.
    I would love to get 20# bags. I grab whatever Smiths has everytime I go. There is no royal oak in the winter here.

  • Just tell her that you are helping Santa out and stock piling "coal for stockings" and if she can't deal with that, then she just needs to talk to the red capped, bearded fella. :P

    with keeping a few bags of lump around.

    I love Wicked Good products ( no secret to some here) so when the supply of Competition Blend dried up I went out and, with some help from a friend, found about 30 bags of the stuff. When my wife saw it in the shed she wondered aloud if there was something wrong with me.

    Ya just never know . . .

    You and I are fine, it's the rest of the world that needs some help. ;)

    Some were, some weren't. That was the day I emptied one pallet and had the lift driver pull down a new one. Still don't know which pallet was US and which was SA.
