OT - GTA, ON Eggheads, Rockwood Charcoal bulk buy?

long story short turns out my one and only Rockwood experience was contraband. 

Looking to see if anyone else would be interested if we could get a pallet near the boarder and then bring home what we want. 

Anyone have an address that could be shipped to and interested in getting some Rockwood lump?

  • Update I found an ace store in buffalo on the dealer locator. Given Costco hasn’t had any coal since fall I need to make a reload run in the next week or two

  • I’m in Ottawa. Were I closer, I’d definitely be interested. Good initiative. 
  • Just out of curiosity, what’s wrong with Maple Leaf?  It’s my favorite lump.  I haven’t had an occasion to go across to pick some up in a couple of years.  Has it changed?  Or perhaps it’s gotten too pricey?

  • Maple Leaf is indeed a solid lump. I stocked up a year or so back when it was on sale. For me, it’s either that or Basque’s. I think the OP was just looking to immerse himself in the Rockwood experience - potentially because folks around here equate it with the bee’s knees.

    I'm guess that with the dollar exchange, duty and freight......it'll be $40 a bag.

  • I haven’t done this to purchase Rockwood yet but do order antique truck parts and get them delivered to a shipping depot in Port Huron just across the boarder from Sarnia. They charge $5 to receive the package. I to use Maple Leaf purchased at Lowes but wood like to try some Rockwood to compare.

  • I’ve burned through two dozen bags of basques and maple .... they are great but I’d like to switch it up and really liked it when I found a bag locally 

    Buffalo is only an hour so I think I will call a few ace stores to confirm they have it in stock

    Can you post where the store is please, I live in southern WNY and can't find it anywhere. I just made a similar request on another post. That looks like the Lewiston crossing, which is another 20 miles further than Buffalo.
