WalMart may not carry Royal Oak Charcoal any longer?

    I don't believe that was the case. I am very careful to make sure I get a clean burn before I start. We went back to BGE lump and haven't had any problems.

    We have a lot of farm stores around here.  I haven't been to many of them, but so far no lump seen at the ones I have been to.  Luckily we have a good BBQ supply place nearby where we can get Royal Oak and also Walmart where we can get it in the summer (I hope that continues).

  • I bought 8 bags of RO at my Wally World last week.  First time since Thanksgiving that they've had some.  I suppose they just needed the space for Christmas junk. ( Houston, TX)

  • Told the Dept Mgr at our local WM about the rumor....he said  "No Way, We sell too much of the stuff!"

  • Will be going to our Wally world today for some RO.  I bought 13 bags last Oct but now down to my last bag.  I am a lump miser.  As soon as the cook is over the lower vent is closed, the DMFT goes on the grate and the rain cap goes on.

    This is a seasonal issue. I expected this and bought 70 pounds thinking it would be enough.  I'm down to 40 already.

    I just used up my first bag of royal oak from walmart and to tell you the truth I wasn't that impressed. I found it to have way too many small pieces. With that being said I am not going to base my final opinion on one bag. I know many people who love the stuff so I will give it another try. If I find similar results in another couple bags though, it's ozark oak only for me.

    I went looking at two local WalMarts this past week for Royal Oak.  The one where I'd previously bought it no longer appeared to have a place for it.  The other had a big empty shelf with the Royal Oak lump price tag still there.  Not being happy with my most recent bag of Publix Greenwise lump, I decided to buy a bag of Winn Dixie lump.  I probably won't try it out til next weekend...unless people tell me its crap :)
  • Went to Wally world today and they had plenty of RO red in the garden center.  Purchased seven bags.  Now I have 90 pounds in the garage...a piker compared to thechief96's stash  :))

    I had to do a remodel and add a room on my shed when I got my egg.
