HAHA! - I saw your posting from Antelope on the map thingy, I knew that was you! Its not too often you see someone absolutely stocking up on lump charcoal - I was gonna mention these forums, but I wasn't sure. Good to have met you.

On the topic, it seems to be pretty widespread, though some stores seem to have pallets and others have none. Hopefully someone gets a response from WM regarding the company's plans for RO.

Take care.

Well , my wife kept her word , said they have only 11 bags left and didn't buy any . I'll have to stop by and grab some while I can.

This scares me.

I hope this isn't true. I haven't checked our Menards in Omaha yet, but WM is the only place I've found to get R.O. in town. Lowes only has the hot dogs (briquetes). I'm callin my rep at Menards tomorrow (i use them for supplies at work). Yesterday I went to the wm where I have been buying my lump and they were OUT! I went to another wm and found an almost full pallet. I bought 7 bags along with an 11.71 lb brisket and a 9.5 lb butt for this weekend. I get paid tomorrow and will likely go buy more coal. We grill out at least 4 times a week and I ususlly stock up, but with this rumor, I'm stockin up like a war is commin!
Good luck coal burners!

I do seem to recall royal oak hardwood being a seasonal thing at walmart. Most of the stores stop stocking it. But wait its frickin June what the hell am I saying. **** they probably cant drive royal oaks prices down low enough gotta crushem Bill Gates style.

I got this response back from Walmart customer service................

Thank you for your message.

Dear Mike,

Thank you for contacting us about the Royal Oak Lump and Charcoal. We appreciate your request and have forwarded it to the appropriate areas.

In researching this with our buying office, we've learned that this is something we still carry and no decisions have been made as of yet to determine whether or not this will be carried in the future. Thank you for asking.

If we can be of any further assistance, please contact us at by e-mail or at 1-800-WALMART.

Thank You,
Wal-Mart Merchandising Team.

For further correspondence regarding this issue, please reply to this email.

----Your Original Comments Were----

Comments: I was just wondering if the rumor that I heard is true or not? I heard that you will no longer be carrying Royal Oak lump and charcoal anymore. If you could tell me if this is true or not and or if this just at certain stores or areas..... Thank you........

Glad that was just an ugly rumor PDT_Armataz_01_37.gif
I had made several calls when my local store was out for a couple of weeks , let them know I use a bunch each year and the RO lump is the only one they carry that I buy icon_evil.gif
They got in a couple of pallets and it is almost gone allready , but as I was grabbing another bag ( only had one hand free ) the mgr and a lady with the stocking gun were right there . I mentioned they were running low , it got scanned and they said they would make sure to get it ordered asap icon_smile.gif

I love how it says confidential, and it's posed on a forum.

Course, they probably don't mind in this case, but it's still funny.

I have RO lump stored in several places in the garage, stuffed in the corner of the kitchen, etc., - my wife is like, "Um.. ?" - I just told her it was the best stuff around and it was better to be safe than sorry :)
