Hello all. I was just in my local Lowes knocking around and as always went over to the smoking/grilling section. They have just put the Royal Oak Classic, which is all I use now on clearance. $4.99 per bag. This summer it was pushing $8.00. 2 weeks ago it was $6.99. Had to get a cart full. I don't use much charcoal in the stick burner. About 1/2 chimney to get my wood going. I do use it in my Weber Kettle for offset smoking as well as grilling steaks, burgers and such. I am in Southeast Mississippi. Don't know if this is a regional thing or not but check it out.

Great find! Thanks for posting. I'm probably good until the Spring, but nice to know you're watching. Like!

I'm gonna have to check our local Lowes out. I'm down to three bags.

I checked Lowe’s online for my local store, $4.99/bag with 75 available in store. Thought it might save you a trip if you weren’t already heading there

My old lady would set me on fire if I brought home another car load of charcoal!

Keep in mind this isn't really a deal breaker for me

That's funny. Really glad I switched this summer from Kingsford to The Royal Oak Classic. Just a better Charcoal in my opinion.

Any time! Our Lowes has a fairly good Smoking/Grilling department. I'm just not a Pellet Smoker sort of a guy but they have a TON of different Pellet smokers and a HUGE supply of different types of pellets. Pellet Heaven. HaHaHaHa!

Thanks Hawg.
Checked the local Lowes and they have the same price and a good stock.
I'm getting low and was worried about making it through the winter and spring.. Not as many people as me understand that grilling and smoking in a Minnesota winter is a welcome treat.

Wife questioned my stocking up in May. I need to show her how is left.

Popped in to the local Big Blue store and snagged up 5 bags. They were going quick! They even had a little charcoal chimney on sale so it ended up in the cart.. Thanks for the head's up!

All you got to do is bundle up warm and get after it! Glad they got plenty for you.

There is a thread that was posted a few months back comparing RO to Kingsford. The guy spent a lot of time on his research. That is when I switched. Do a search and you will find it.
