Damn, when I think of all the money I spend on charcoal it's really making me consider building a charcoal retort and making my own!

Hmmm... I got access to free hardwood...

My local ACE sells WG Weekend Warrior for $24.99/22 lb. bag. I bought one with a $5.00 off card just to try it.
I gotta say, I'm not impressed with it at all. It burns up WAY too fast without hardly any increase in heat.
Its gone now and for that kind of $$ I'm back to USA RO.

Well i picked up my 5 bags today from Ace. Have to say that i'm less than pleased with the state of the bags. Looks like they have been manhandled and a few of them had small holes in them. Dumped out one bag into the tupperware i store it in and noticed very few large pieces and a lot of dust. This is my first time receiving Wicked Good and ordering from Ace. Is Wicked usually lacking larger pieces / have a lot of dust and made up of mostly smaller pieces?

It depends on how you plan to use them. WG is made from hardwood which burns slow and makes it is good for long smokes. RO is made from lesser hard wood so it burns faster. Both burn very clean. I use WG for long smokes and RO for hot grilling.

I think is a good deal, but you will need to buy 5 bags to hit $100.00+ at checkout.
'
You will also need to use the promotional code ACERMN15J (15% discount) and select "ship to store" but the final price should be 17.99 a bag plus tax.

Used my Wicked Good Charcoal last weekend, burned 20+ hours @ 250 and still had 20% left over in the Kamado. Lots of LARGE pieces (4-5 " limbs parts). Ive used RO and BGE, but Wicked Good seems to be my favorite now.

Sent ACE an email expressing my concerns of the bags and they send me a $30 promotional code to use at a future date.

I'm on acehardware.com right now.

Searched for Wicked Good, then charcoal.

The first search resulted in almost nothing. Second search displayed a bunch of Kingsford products, a couple Cowboy, and all kinds of Weber grills. Not a single Wicked Good bag to be found.

Does it say 'Wicked Good Not Available in Virginia' somewhere in the fine print?

My local Ace hardware says they still carry it. They actually keep it in stock at the stores where I am at. I would call up your local Ace Hardware and see if they keep it instock, if they don't ask them if they can order some. Their staff will tell you whether Ace will have stopped carrying it or if they are able to still get some from their distributor.

mine never carried it. when I went to pick it up after ordering it, the manager asked me about it since he had never seen it before. This was a few months ago

There is a place that sells it thats not too far from my work, but they want $26 for a bag.

I bought one at first, but wont again for that price.

here is the thread I was talking about

If you read the thread the OP mistakenly said it was DoItBest that was not carrying WG anymore. I have noticed that Ace doesn't have it listed on their website anymore, but last weekend I picked up 2 bags and asked if they planned on still carrying it as there was a rumor that they wouldnt. He checked the warehouse levels and they have plenty to sell still.
