Default Is Royal Oak Regional?

I use Royal oak lump in my Eggs all the time. I bought a bag at Walmart in Bullhead City and cooked a steak in my Egg this week,. I swear it tasted way better than it usually does. I wonder if possibly the wood to make the lump was a different type to start. If I would have thought I would have read bag and seen if it had an origin of the pakaging. An opinions on this?

I do know ther is a Royal Oak plant 20 minutes from my home. It is in Meta, Mo. There is also one in Salem, Missouri, which is a little over an hour from me. I'm sure there are others but I guess I have to say's a Missouri thing for the most part.

I don't know where they make the stuff, but I'm glad they do!
I love Royal Oak Lump.
I used to swear by the Kingsford coals, now I hardly use the stuff.
I love using my smoker 5 or 6 times before I get enough ash to clean out.

You can usually find the country of origin on the bag somewhere. They have Argentinian, Brazilian, Paraguay, and USA........all with varying degrees of quality.

I haven't been thrilled with Royal Oak. Seems to burn too fast in the Spicewine. And it just feels too light to me. Maybe I'm not doing something right.
