    Default So, is it just pretty much Royal Oak now?

    With the demise of Ozark Oak, what are you all using now? I can get the Royal Oak lump at walmart (Yes, I know, but I can get it). Any other competitors brands that you are happy with? I sure do miss my Ozark Oak!

    I'm going between cowboy brand hardwood lump and Stubs briquettes, both from Lowes the cowboy brand is a combo of oak and hickory. I'll mix in the briquettes on longer cooks and throw chunks on top for smoke.

    I use Royal Oak almost exclusively in my drum and grill.

    I use Best Choice lump. It's Royal Oak in a different bag, sold by AG stores, Apple Market, Country Mart, Price Chopper, others.

    Mike is spot on. In Oklahoma, they have it at Homeland, sold as "Best Choice". Also, "The Good One" sold at Ace is decent.

    We never had Ozark Oak in the Houston area. Plenty of other good stuff here. I use HEB private label mesquite or Central Market (another HEB brand) brand oak or mesquite. All good and cheap.
