    I already have 3 bags sitting in my garage. Did your store also have their XL lump? I might have to grab a bag of five of that to try out too.

    Mine only carries the 15lb bags.  I want to try their XL bag too.

  • I have a bag of the 30lb unopened in my garage. I did see the XL at Walmart last week and was tempted to grab a bag, but my wife would have cried foul if I took up anymore garage space with charcoal.  I’m interested in getting feedback from anyone who has tried it.

    Picked up a bag this morning at the Sarasota Walmart.  I've been using Rockwood on a regular basis the past few months, but I have a bag of this and a bag of B&B as backup.

    Grabbed some in Atlanta today.  For 50 cents a pound that's a great deal.

  • Local Walmart has the 30# (.56/lb) and new XL, at .93/lb.  I pay $1/lb for Rockwood, so the XL was not a big deal to me!

    BTW I didn't say I BOUGHT the lump, I said I SAW it and passed the deal to others. Thanks though.

    The bags I tried had some HUGE rocks in them. Might want to try the B&B instead!

    I bought a bag, found it a bit smokey for my taste, and restocked up on Rockwood when I caught a sale.

    I've been using the 30 pounders for awhile now.  Cant beat them for pizza cooks.   For low n slows you just have to wait 1 hour or 2 before the meat goes on.   Rockwood is definitely better,  but the 30 pound bags are great if you aren't in a hurry.

    The B&B is $12.44 for 20# bag. That’s $0.62 per pound.  The Royal Oak is $0.56 per pound.  If you discount the big rocks on the RO, the B&B is cheaper.  Just sayin’!

    The Naked Whiz database says it is/was the food service packaging for Royal Oak.  This review was from 2004 so I don't if that or anything else is still true.  The review can be found at http://www.nakedwhiz.com/lumpdatabase/lumpbag43.htm

    I use only royal oak bc it’s the most convenient and priced well. Will see if they have this in stock at my local Wally-World. Thanks for sharing

    I've been using the XL Royal Oak for about 6 months, I like it the pieces are nice and big and burn clean.  Paired with the right wood chucks it does a great job for my taste and economical.

    I know, my rather abstract point is that I have found no rocks or other debris so far with 6 bags.

    When buying a car would you rely on a 2004 review of that model car? Chances are pretty good that the 2019 car is a tad different than the 2004 model. The naked whiz database is certainly not something reliable. One good bag of lump they received 20 years ago and people think its the holy grail. While they set out to do good, their info in todays age make their database essentially useless. The best way to get a current review is to buy a bag/box of lump and decide for yourself.

    My local Walmart did not have Royal Oak for the first time since I had my egg. Wonder why?
  • ToxarchToxarch Posts: 1,845
    I've used a lot of the 18/20 lb and some of the 30s. I get maybe 1 small rocks in 10 bags. Good stuff and good price.

    FWIW Walmart at my local E. Tenn store has 15lb. for 9.96. No 30 lb. bags.

    Use a lot of Royal Oak as it is decent quality at an excellent price and readily available at Wally-World, although lately, Wally-World has been inconsistent with Royal Oak being in or out of stock.  Maybe demand exceeding supply?

    My local Walmart had 30# bags of Western lump for $9.88, so I had to grab one to try out.
    The B&B they stock is not bad, but has a lot of 1.5” round limb stock in the bag.  And a bit “sparky” when you light it.

    Royal Oak got stinky on me. OK for open cooks (burgers, steaks) but not for anything with the lid closed. It added the faint aroma and taste of a bias ply tire or roofing materials. Disappointing as I'd used it successfully for some time. Made the change to Rockwood and have never been let down.
