Was it their Steak House lump?

The green/tan bag at Menards is the same as the red bag, unless it says Steakhouse. It usually does not.

Go back to Wally World and get the Backyard Grill briquettes, I'm pretty sure it's rebagged RO Chefs Select.

If your near an Academy sports they sell Outdoor Gourmet for $4.99 for's re-branded RO. Home depot also has a brand called Embers $5.99 for RO. Just flip the bag over and look toward the bottom right and you will see where it says produced by Royal Oak.

The green RO bag from Menards is just as good as the red.

Can't go wrong with Ozark Oak.

FWIW, for my last two cooks, I used RO briquettes having gotten tired of the comments on KBB. Surprisingly I found the RO to put out A LOT more ash than the KBB.

I burn a lot of R.O. Lump... It's generally good stuff.
Problem is that lately it's too small and powdery.

I'm not sure there's much benefit from mixing Lump and Briquettes,
unless you have a little of each to use up.

Just curious, why are you wanting to mix lump and briquettes? They will burn differently. I'm not saying it will be a bad thing, just looking for why you are wanting to do this instead of keeping your fuel consistent.

ive read on here that many,many guys do a 50/50 mix basicaly from what im understanding take advantage of both types of fuel pro's and con's i live in illinois and royal oak isnt wildly sold i need some for this weekened and the wally world by me is out for a while and the next closet isnt ..menards has the 2 tone green bag and no not steak house it was light green on top the lower half dark green royal oak in yellow letters said 100% all natural hardwood lump charcoal ....i would have posted a pic but havent been able to ...

Goldenfinger 09-24-2013 07:16 PM

Hey guys,
Where does this stuff fit into the mix..?
Around here this is the ONLY option for Royal Oak...

Please advise. :confused:

I have never seen that bag before, the logo looks right though. Interesting.

I wonder if it has to do with importing. Does it say where it is made anywhere on the bag? Usually on the bottom of the front, or maybe back by the barcode.
