Default Source for wholesale lump charcoal.

Does anyone know where to get lump charcoal at wholesale? I need to order about 2 pallets and want to get the best deal.

Thanks.

It depends on what brand you want or will accept. You can have rest. supply vendors deliver to your door, pick up at the plant in your own vehicle or pick up at a dock and so on. Once you decide then make the call to that source. Down in SW MO I can get a food vendor to deliver pallets of the charcoal I like and is harder to find for the same as picking up at plant (300 mile drive). Shopping will help, but decide on which route. Also the Do It Best route prices the RO lump at very reasonable prices per bag, might try them for a better deal. Good Luck. Steve.

I can get RO lump at Menard's for $5.98/8.8# bag. I'll look around. Thanks for the idea.

I checked with them and they only have briquettes. I am looking for lump. It works best for me.

I will see what kind of deal I can get at Menard's. I like the RO they have.

I know there is some place down here in Missouri that makes lump. I remember watching it on Dirty Jobs on the Discovery Channel. You can get their info off of dude's shirt at the beginning of the video.

RD and Cash & Carry have large bags of lump, I am sure you can order a pallet.

I am going to see what kind of deal I can get through Menard's.

I have talked to the rep at Sysco and he said they don't carry any lump charcoal.

I am going to check out Seven Oaks Charcoal. They are in Lineville, IA and have a very good review from Naked Whiz.

No RD here in Iowa. Would be nice if they were here. We are just getting our first Whole Foods here in Des Moines.

Seven Oaks is excellent charcoal. In my experience, it's hard to find and a little on the expensive side.

I was told there are actually 2 types of Royal Oak lump, with one noticeably better than the other. Anyone have clarification on this?

There is the regular lump and the "Steakhouse" lump. They are in different bags. Menard's used to get the Steakhouse, but now gets the regular. I have notice that the Steakhouse was a little better. I didn't find as much debris and more consistent chunks. This was just my experience, I have no data to prove this.

The lump I get here is the Royal Oak food service brand, Nature-Glo.

I get a 40 pound bag for around $20. Might be even cheaper if you get a bunch.
