Just wonderin' if anyone else has found ,what appears to be insulation in their Royal Oak Lump? This is the third time I have encounterd this in the last 6 months.The first time ,I found it in my ashes and it didn't burn so that's why I say it's insulation!
Finding thing's in your bag of coal is not unusual, I think the best I've found so far are rocks, or at least that's what I think they were. That thing you found looks sort of fuzzy, I hope it's just insulation

Ouch.... usually RO is one of the better brands for not having to much foriegn objects in it. But I agree it probably is part of the oven liner from the big ovens they use to make the charcoal in.
Hey Rap,

I don't know where you got that, but you better take it back!

Looks like some poor guy lost his toupee! 


Maybe it's a mouse or something and they will give you a boat load of new bags for it. is reader supported and as an Amazon Associate, we may earn commissions from qualifying purchases.
