Just wondering if it's any good cause they have it on sale for $2.99 for an 8.8 lb bag at my local Kroger, so I bought a few bags.

Used it once in an emergency. I thought it worked fine.

I bought some once to try. Except for the price, it was fine.

I think I read on here that it is actually rebranded RO Lump.

Its all I use. 5$ for a 8 pound bag. It always has large chunks which I like.

They had it marked down to 3/bag at my local Kroger's the other day, and I was wondering the same thing. If it's still that price next time I go, I'm going to have to buy a couple bags to try.

I've used it. Seemed to work just fine.

It's actually produced by royal oak so can't be too bad

I just used it when I smoked 3 slabs of baby backs last weekend and it worked quite well.

Thanks y'all, I bought a few bags, and plan to try it out this weekend. I think they have the $2.99/bag deal running until next Tues. If it works good, I may go pick up some more. Hard to go wrong at that price.

I wonder if that sale is going on at the Memphis Krogers. I'll have to check it out.

I just checked my local Kroger ad online and they have 50% off of all Kroger brand charcoal. :thumb:

Looks to be, I told my best friend about it down here, and he went to his local Kroger over near Mt Moriah/Poplar, and got it for $2.99/bag.

Yeppers. Got 4 bags (All that was on the shelf at the time) at 2.99 per. Sweet deal!

I grabbed two bags myself for that price. Hope it works out good, I'll be getting more!

Went to our Fry's Marketplace (owned by Krogers) yesterday, but alas, there was none on the shelf. Went back today and I grabbed all that was on the shelf, 7 bags (sorry 1911Ron). At $3.19 a bag, not a bad deal. Our WallyWorld just started carrying RO lump.

Can anyone tell me if Kroger lump has all the random chit in it that RO has i.e. bits of asbestos/kiln liner, concrete, rocks, etc? I (and others on here ) have found these things in RO lump before, and is one fo the reasons I stopped buying it. But if Kroger lump is cleaner, I might go pick up a few bags. Also, is it made out of scraps (flooring, trim, etc) or is it made from "real" wood?

I bought one bag a year or so ago. It was all good. Not much dust or tiny pieces, no trash, and appeared all natural wood. I just couldn't justify a dollar a pound for it. On sale, it was good enough for me to grab four.
