Question Royal Oak Chef's Select in Chicago Burbs?

Does anyone know where I can pick up some Royal Oak Chef's Select in the Northwest Suburbs of Chicago?

I have used Embers Charcoal Briquettes from Home Depot which are exactly the same as standard Royal Oak Ridge, and wonder if there is a big difference between the two.

Thanks!

Just go to the Do it best website and see what stores are near you. As far as I know you have to order it online. At least I do! I'm ordering 2 40lb bags tomorrow.

I don't know have it compares to other charcoal, but there's a lot of praise on it, and people like it better than Kingsford at least. They also say its better than standard royal oak.

I know it won't help with location, but I get it ship-to-store at DoItBerst. Love that stuff. I go between it and Trader Joe's briqs, which are rebadged Rancher - also great stuff at a decent price.
