Default 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.

It was not

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

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. But lump charcoal should behave better by default (other than sparks when lighting).
