Default Ace not selling Wicked Good Anymore?

I just came from my local ace hardware. Where I was told that ace would not be carrying wicked good lump any longer. The store owner told me that ace is a kamado Joe dealer and that is what they are going to sell when the wicked good is all sold..

He also told me that the kamado joe brand lump is bagged by wicked good. Is there any truth to this. He told me it would be the same price.

Anyone else hear anything.

I ordered a bag tonight so it looks as though they still stock it.

Weird they say its a KJ dealer, last time i went, all they had were GE's. I didnt know to look at lump back then, since i wasnt in the BBQ scene. I may go back and check it out.

I may be wrong, but I think ACE Hardwares are locally owned. If thats the case, then some should be able to carry one product while others carry another. WGWW is definitely still on their website and my local ace has never carried that or any ceramic cookers.

Same here. I've read Kamado Joe lump is produced by Wicked Good and is very good! My local Ace carries it as well but I can still order WG @ Acehardware.com and have it delivered free to the store. I plan to try KJ once I'm out of WG.

I'm sorry. I was mistaken. I was looking at DoItBest, not Ace Hardware. My bad. Wicked Good is still on the Ace Hardware website.

ours has never sold it. they used to sell cowboy and now they sell something else.

i'm having huge problems finding decent lump around here. the RO from walmart doesn't have any pieces bigger than a tennis ball and most about the size of a golf ball or smaller.

KJ has a North American blend and South American blend. I would guess the SA blend is like WGWW.

I personally really like their NA blend better than WGWW. The printing on the bag is a little different between the two, and the bag material is different. The SA blend is pretty much the same bag material as WGWW.

I have used Kingsford blue bag, Royal Oak, and Wicked Good Weekend Warrior.

Wicked Good Weekend Warrior produces much less ash, can burner hotter, and burns longer than any of the charcoals I have used for grilling and smoking. What would normally take me 4 chimney's of Royal Oak to cook, I have used 1.5 chimneys of Wicked Good Weekend Warrior. You will pay more in the front end for Weekend Warrior but in the backend you will spend about the same as amount of money for it than Royal Oak, with longer cook times and more cooks with it.
