It will still give you a light smoke / charcoal taste, it's just not overpowering like some "charcoals". Some of these can overpower fish or poultry. Either way, if it's not enough for you, just throw in a chunk of smoke wood in the flavor of your choosing.
You don't know what kind of wood is in most bags of charcoal, especially the SA stuff. That smoke might be variety that is not of your liking (mesquite, hickory, etc.) So we give you a very flavor neutral smoke, and allow you to use your own wood to control the flavor and intensity.

We do have one dealer in Chicago........Hofherr Meat Co in Northbrook. Not sure how far that is from you, but they have 10# bags if you need them.
Thanks for all the kind words!
You can order Rockwood from any Ace Hardware store in the SouthEastern US, but there are about 30 stores around Atlanta that have it on the shelf every day. Just go to our website and punch in your ZIP--you'll see the closest stocking store. Call ahead before you make the trip though (SKU# is 8400772).rlnewman said:Any suggestions on where to get either one: OO or RW? I have looked for several years here in the ATL area and haven't found either.
thailandjohn said:These are mud huts that they load with wood, set on fire and then seal off except for a very small opening and burn down to charcoal......this is used for their everyday cooking
In South America it's usually the other way around.......they stack all the wood up into a pile, then build the kiln around it. Then after the cooking and the cooling, they just knock it down and collect the charcoal.
