Default B&B Oak Lump vs Royal Oak Lump

I picked 4 bags of B&B Oak Lump and 1 bag of Royal Oak Lump at Walmart. I decided to open a few bags to see how they compare and load them into my plastic containers. Here’s the B&B with a business card (3 1/4'” x 2”) for size comparison.







And in the container. (See the dust & tiny pieces? The 2nd & 3rd bags didn’t have as much)



Royal Oak



Here’s the RO with a business card (3 1/4'” x 2”) for size comparison.



And in the container.

No not much. The first bag of B&B was the only bag that had much of any dust & tiny pieces. I poured the bags into the plastic containers so I could see the bottom of the bag.

Both were purchased from Walmart. There's not allot of difference. The RO was just a little larger size but were flatter (more like 1x material) than the B&B which seemed to be more like real chunks. Also the B&B had many many truely carbonized pieces. (not sure if you can see this in the pics) I haven't burned any yet so don't have any opinions yet but will revisit this when I do.

You can get B&B at Academy Sports. $14.99 for a 20lb bag.

B&B is usually pretty good and it comes in different flavors (oak, mesquite, hickory, etc). It's available in quite a few places down here in the Houston area, but I am cheap so I normally buy RO when it's on sale at Wally World. All things being equal, I usually buy the oak when I get B&B. The mesquite is dynamite for steaks.

Once it is carbonized it's all the same all the compounds that add flavor age long gone. All that labeling is for marketing. You can make lump out of Pine or Cedar once it is carbonized it makes no difference. I have cooked many a meal over cedar and pine coals with no off taste. You want the Flavor add wood.

I have never tried B&B lump I did try the natural Briquettes and was very impressed.
