Lump Charcoal

I am SO excited. Here in MN, not many people BBQ like in other places. Lump has been limited to Cowboy at Menards. Stuff is really junk, almost ALL flooring scrap.
I just got back from China (walmart) and they got in a whole load of RO Lump. Was with the wifey in her Jeep so only bought 1 bag. Going back tomorrow in the pickem' up twuck and get the whole pallet!!!!!
Ah, smoke is a gonna be a rollin' in the morning with Spares in the Ol' girl.
Smoke On!!!! Life is good. Say goodbye Cowboy Crud.

Yeah, my local supermarket carries Royal Oak. No problem picking up a bag and a butt all under 1 roof.

As soon as I can find a 30 gallon drum I'm going to make some! I get BGE lump in town but it is pricey. I found nearly an endless supply of oak scraps for $5.00 a burlap sack full. Should make a lot of lump cheap.
My project is based on: http://www.nakedwhiz.com/makinglump.htm
Already have the 55 gallon drum and bricks.
