Default Wegmans store brand lump. I'm impressed!

I know it's been talked about before but I picked up some today and I'm really impressed. It's a 10 pound bag for 6.29. I've heard it was made by royal oak too. The bag had no dust in it and it's the first time I've seen any lump look like this. I dug through the bag and I didn't see any rocks, nails, frogs, lizards, or anything other than lump. It didn't have any real large pieces but I prefer not to have to break up giant pieces anyway. I've only used cowboy (and its been horrible) and wicked good(which I like) so I don't have much to compare against but me likey. I'm gonna burn it for the first time this weekend and I'll try to remember to post an update on how it went. In the meantime, here are a few pics:

This is true. Before I found this stuff I had only seen WG and cowboy in my area.

FYI, I understand that Kroger Lump is also made by Royal Oak. I bought some, and was impressed with it, too.

Grabbed two bags this Summer and wish I had grabbed more. I too have been using Cowboy - bags of tree trunks and dust for the most part. Next time I'm in the area I'll pick up more wegmans. Pretty good stuff and a good price too!

I liked it too. Burned very hot. My only complaint was that it was sparky as all hell in the chimney.

You can't go wrong with anything Wegmans brand. I'm lucky enough to shop at one every week. I don't know how you folks without them survive. lol

That started about a month ago and is one of their 6 month guaranteed prices. I cooked one up about 3 weeks ago, good stuff.

We shop at Wegmans on a regular basis. I love their stores. Everything is good quality and fairly priced. I have seen their lump before but was leary on buying any. I'm pretty picky about my lump. Keep us posted, if it's good I'll definitely stock up.
