The green/tan bag at Menards is the same as the red bag, unless it says Steakhouse. It usually does not.

Go back to Wally World and get the Backyard Grill briquettes, I'm pretty sure it's rebagged RO Chefs Select.

If your near an Academy sports they sell Outdoor Gourmet for $4.99 for 16lbs...it's re-branded RO. Home depot also has a brand called Embers $5.99 for 16lbs...re-branded RO. Just flip the bag over and look toward the bottom right and you will see where it says produced by Royal Oak.

The green RO bag from Menards is just as good as the red.

FWIW, for my last two cooks, I used RO briquettes having gotten tired of the comments on KBB. Surprisingly I found the RO to put out A LOT more ash than the KBB.

I burn a lot of R.O. Lump... It's generally good stuff.
Problem is that lately it's too small and powdery.

I'm not sure there's much benefit from mixing Lump and Briquettes,
unless you have a little of each to use up.

Just curious, why are you wanting to mix lump and briquettes? They will burn differently. I'm not saying it will be a bad thing, just looking for why you are wanting to do this instead of keeping your fuel consistent.

Hey guys,

Around here this is the ONLY option for Royal Oak...



Please advise.

I have never seen that bag before, the logo looks right though. Interesting.

I wonder if it has to do with importing. Does it say where it is made anywhere on the bag? Usually on the bottom of the front, or maybe back by the barcode.
