I paid 20.99 for a 22lb bag yesterday. Is that a decent price?

Isn't the general consensus that this lump is the holy grail of lump?

Usually I pay around 23 for that bag. I really like it but can't always shell out the cash for it.

I agree, it's a steep price. Especially when I can get Royal Oak at $12.98 for a 17lb bag.

Ace HW is my only source around here and normal price is right at $23. I like it, but don't like it that much to pay that all the time. I really try to take advantage of the online deals and 10-15% off sales they run from time to time. That is when I buy it.

My Ace charges $24.99/22# bag. I bought 1. Used it. Not impressed.
I'll stay with USA RO from Walmart.

20.99 is what we pay for it. That 22 lb bag of wicked good lump has the equivalent burn time of 30 lbs of royal oak. The wicked good is dense, burns really slow and very little ash. So in the long run, your Payne just as much for RO. We use this stuff exclusively for comps, good stuff. That's sad when you have a special stash of wicked good. The central market mesquite is some good stuff also.

It's great lump and that's the regular price around here. I'd save that lump for low and slows, and use RO or something else for grilling.

That is the price at Ace here locally. Yes it is more expensive than Royal Oak, however you will get a lot more cooks out of Wicked Good than you will Royal Oak that it about equals out in the end.

The cook time from 1 chimney of Wicked Good, I have to use anywhere between 2-3 chimney's of Royal Oak. So the $23 bucks for 20lbs is about equal to the $20-$30 worth of 40ish lbs of Royal Oak. Not to mention I don't have to fuss with adding more charcoal in with longer cooks when I use Wicked Good as I would with Royal Oak.

Glad to know someone is getting the mighty fine results I am also

Tarintin Tank company in Elizabethtown PA had it for $14.80 a bag for lump. My parents live close by so I stocked up last yr.
