The store that I was buying RO from does not carry it anymore. Where else can I find it in Tampa?

    Hey Hairless

    Walmart is usually the best bet for R.O. If they do not have it you can call them at 678-461-3200, I believe that is in Roswell, GA. I have not had to use this number in a long time but last I new it was good. Ask for customer service and talk to them about where you can find their lump it in your area. Places like Lowe's, Home Depot and Ace Hardware stores will carry Cowboy lump charcoal which has a slight reputation of burning a bit faster then R.O. but in my opinion is almost as good. Also if you have time, check out some of your little Hispanic markets in the Tampa area. In a couple down here I have found some interesting charcoals. One is Viva Pancho Mesquite lump charcoal that I have posted about HERE . It has a slightly different flavor/smell that is fantastic for steaks among other things. Mesquite lump is nowhere as strong in flavor as mesquite smoke wood.

    Welcome to da Forum and have a great Memorial Day,

    Restraint Depot, they just had it on sale last month and the Tampa store carries the USA.

    Thanks Mike, good to hear from you. I am getting ready to head for Cincinnati at the end of this week.
    Hopefully we can all get together sometime when we get back :)

    Blair thanks for the info. I usually buy my charcoal at the new Walmart in South Tampa but they did not have any yesterday. No one seemed very concerned about the fact that they did not have it in stock either......... This is why I only shop there to buy two things, charcoal and Conecuh Sausage. By the way, in my travels today I found some RO at another Walmart location and I stocked up! Thanks again and Happy Memorial day to all!
