Wally world lump charcoal
 
I was at wally world this afternoon and I noticed they had their own brand of lump charcoal. It was about 5 bucks for 6 and a half pounds. One was made primarily out of mesquite the other out of oak. I was a little apprehensive about buying any so I was wondering if any of the Brethren have ever used any of this stuff and how good is it? Let me know.

last time i was there i do not remember seeing that. i know their black bag briquettes are made by royal oak so i guess i would assume thats who makes the other stuff until i get more info. they do sell royal oak lump.
seems a bit expensive for what you mentioned though.

That's pricey for sure. You can get Wicked Good Weekend Warrior shipped to your local Ace hardware for about $1/lb. Costco carries Stubbs lump which is pretty decent stuff for about 50cents/lb. Also, small bags of lump usually means small pieces in the bag. I would pass.

I find more & more with Walfart the Great Value brand is more than the name brand products. I don't shop there much I can get 20 lb of Cowboy lump for 14 bucks at True Value Hardware and 6.5 lb sacks at HEB for 4.85.

...or you can grab Royal Oak at Menards--~$5.90 for 8.8#

I was in need of lump and went to WW and all they had was Best of the West brand

It was not

tiny pieces and 1/4 of the bag was unusable.

learned my lesson on that

My normal brand is royal oak, around here it is seasonal so now there is none. Grabbed a bag of BGE and paid too much for it, lots of small stuff in bottom of bag. Next I got Wicked Good Weekend Warrior. So far out of that bag I've gotten 3 rocks,(no problem just removed them) and 1 piece of insulation (not so good) and still have half of it left. I have also gotten bad stuff in cowboy a couple of years ago so dont use it. I would try the wally world in a pinch but royal oak will still be my go to lump. And yes I know they make the BGE lump.

I go to Walmart about every couple weeks, I'll see if they got it. I know about 4 years ago I tried the house brand of briquettes, they sputtered and let out little sparks and fell apart easily after they were lit. They were more like ash briquettes. :mmph: But lump charcoal should behave better by default (other than sparks when lighting).

bwsy2k 02-18-2013 11:21 AM
