Walmart no longer carrying Royal Oak?

post #1 of 32
Thread Starter 
At Walmart, as is usual, - saw a guy loading up a cartful of Royal Oak.
I mentioned the possibility of smoking some meat, and we got to a short conversation about Royal Oak Hardwood lump.

Apparently the guy was loading up due to Walmart discontinuing stock of Royal Oak Natural Wood Charcoal? Is there any truth to this?

If so I'm going down tonight to the Super and loading up.icon_exclaim.gif

I sure hope that's not true, Wally's is the only place I've been able to find Royal Oak. I may go stock up too, just in case. Thanks for the heads up!

Ours got bout 4 pallets of it, so I don't know ifin they gonna quit carryin it. Think is wa 5.60 er so a bag. Stock up now, cause they probably won't reorder fer winter. Ours runs out by bout Feb an don't have it till late April ta early May.

Ifin yall got a dollar general store, they carry it too.

That does not sound good at all. I was in walley world earlier today and they had what looked like a new pallet of it but it was 6.80 a bag. if they quit carrying it i don't know where to find it in my area

Got my wife checking for me right now , said she won't buy any more just 'cause I've got about ten bags still icon_rolleyes.gif
If it's still in stock I'll have to grab another six pack or so this week. And keep hoping that this is just a vicious rumer .

That's just sad.......I guess Wally World just can't bear to have something made in the USA on it's shelves......confused.gif

Either that or RO had to increase prices like everyone else around the country and Wal-Mart said NO to RO ... very sad to hear ...

I just e-mailed them to find out the scoop. don't know when I will hear back from them..

I talked with the outdoor manager a while back at the store by my house.
To my surpise he is a big time smoker and knew all about the RO lump. He said they send it normally once a year at the beginning of summer and that is it untill next year, the rest of the summer he recieves the crapowhapo coal..he trys to get more but thats it. this year they recievd 3 pallets at the store I bought 30 plus bags. I will head to the store in the other end of town and buy more.as I grill every night almost.smoking is still hard as I work 24 on 24 off and need a little more time at the house for preps and everythang.but I have 3 days off every two weeks and look forward to them..here is the link..make a request..usa..usa..usa..
