Default Royal Oak Sale Score thanks to......(pics)

Thanks to riskyguy for the kmart sale notification. Kmarts are hard to find around me but stopped by one this morning not expecting the sale to be in my area but it was. What is crazy is the normal price at kmart for royal oak is $6 for 16lbs which is way cheaper than the $6 for 9ish lbs at walmart. Then it was half off for $3 so I of course bought all 12 bags they had. And I'll be looking for more kmarts this weekend.

Here is the price


Here is what the had. A few bags on the shelf to the right.


Now in my cart


And loaded up

I passed it up at my Kmart. The RO came from Paraguay.

Yeah I've heard depending on where it comes from can depend on the quality. But for the price I'll let it ride.

+1 to riskguy & also to fnbish for reminding me to go this morning.

All my K-mart had left was 2 bags of RO Steak House lump (got 'em) and 3 bags of Frontier Mesquite Cookin' Chunks (got them also). All for less than $20.

I never considered where the charcoal came from. Just assumed it was in the US.

Hey guys I'm new here so I don't know if you guys know about this site

http://www.nakedwhiz.com/lump.htm

It rates lump coal and also says were it comes from. RO come from several places. You need to read the bag to see where.

Thought I would pass the info on.

I had no idea it was on sale till I saw this thread. They didn't have any red bags, but did have 10 bags of Steak House lump I picked up. I haven't tried the steak house lump yet but for the price I couldn't walk away without it.

Some RO lump is made in Paraguay, it's OK in a pinch but doesn't burn as long or as hot as the made in US.

I didn't know if this was a "Buy American" issue or if something was wrong with it or both.

It is the quality. The stuff from Paraguay is real crap. Try it and you will understand.
