I know there have been a few threads that some walmarts are phasing out royal oak lump, and mine is. Dirty &*^*$&, its really the only thing i even go into the store for anymore i hate it so bad. So the good is i wont have to go to Walmart anymore. The bad is i feel like ive lost a loved one...i just started smoking a year ago and this is the only charcoal i have ever used. I only have a bag left. I need more coal for the weekend of the 4th. So, where can i find more? I live in an ohio podunk town with no other big supply stores around. the ONLY other lump i can find is Cowboy at the local hardware. Will i be dissapointed if i go to Kingsford briqs? How much difference in taste will i notice? I use minion method on WSM. My friend suggested i buy a skid of Royal Oak...i thought hmmm i think i would if i could find a place to get it for me! Any ideas? I finally perfected my butts with the addition of Jeff's rub and a mixture of hickory and oak now im lost! Ok ok its not the end of the world but im pretty tore up about it!
