Rockwood Lump Charcoal

In stock at all 4 locations.
Order online or add to your Concierge Curbside form

Rockwood Lump Charcoal...$17.99 / 20lb Bag
It is currently the number #1 rated hard wood charcoal on the

100% Missouri hardwood charcoal.
When we poured the charcoal out onto the ground for sorting, we all hardwood charcoal with nothing that shouldn't have been there. As you can see from the following chart, the distribution of sizes was exceptional with the percentage of chips and dust falling below 5%. This is very low compared to all other charcoals we have tested. The bag contained almost an extra pound of charcoal, so we ended up with almost 20 pounds of usable charcoal.

There was no sparking or popping when lighting the charcoal in a chimney starter and the fire was somewhat slow to spread. The smoke coming off the charcoal during lighting was very mild, as mild as we think we have ever noticed.

During our maximum temperature test, the charcoal burned at just over 900° which is high compared to other brands we've tested. Again, the fire was rather slow to spread and build up to the high temperature it achieved.

When it came to burn time, this charcoal came in as the fourth longest burning lump charcoal we have ever tested. The ash produced was very low compared to other brands.

You get a charcoal that doesn't over power the food, allowing you to control the smoke flavor yourself with chips or chunks, and a charcoal that burns a good long time producing little ash and delivering good value for money. This charcoal gets our Highly Recommended rating.

"We grow with nature, not against it" -- Dry Dock
Dry Dock Farm Heritage Breed Farm Fresh Eggs...$4.99 / per dozen
* Cage Free * Free Range * Hand Gathered *
* Antibiotic and Hormone Free * Small Flock Eggs *

What is Heritage Breed?
Basically many of these "heritage" breeds of chickens (and other animals) were becoming threatened because the large egg producers were favoring chickens that produced a quantity of eggs and not quality. To quote The American Livestock Breeds Conservancy (ALBC), "Modern food production now favors the use of a few highly specialized breeds selected for maximum output in a controlled environment. Many traditional livestock breeds have lost popularity and are threatened with extinction. These traditional breeds are an essential part of the American agricultural inheritance."

Some of the Heritage breeds that Dry Dock has includes:
Ameraucana Chickens - "Easter Egg Chicken" -- produces blue and green eggs
Barred Plymouth Rock Chickens -- Brown Eggs - pre-World War II - this was the most popular and most likely the eggs being eaten.
Rhode Island Red Chicken -- Light to Dark Brown Eggs
New Hampshire Chicken (see picture from Wikipedia above) -- Light brown eggs 

"Dry Dock Farm is 3 acres of rich river bottom land near the village of Silex, Missouri. We purchased our farm in 2005. We are remodeling our turn of the century farm house and barn.
We grow Heirloom vegetables, flowers, and herbs. Our Heirloom tomatoes are bursting with that old time “picked from Grandma’s garden flavor”. We grow our produce and flowers using bio-intensive, no chemicals, no GMO seeds, and we enrich our soil with natural minerals, cover crops, worm castings and compost. We also raise Heritage chickens, turkeys, geese. ducks and assorted other poultry. Our birds are raised on pasture with fresh air and sunshine. They are fed a vegetarian diet, to provide you with the best tasting farm fresh eggs.

Dry Dock Farms runs a Community Supported Agriculture (CSA)
In basic terms, CSA consists of a pledge support to a farm operation so that the farmland becomes, either legally or spiritually, the community’s farm, with the growers and consumers providing mutual support and sharing the risks and benefits of food production. Members or shareholders of the farm or garden pledge in advance to cover the anticipated costs of the farm operation and farmer’s salary. In return, they receive shares in the farm throughout the growing season as well as satisfaction gained from reconnecting to the land. (USDA definition)

Lagunita's The Waldos' Special Ale

The dankest and hoppiest beer ever brewed at Lagunitas

Lagunita's The Waldos' Special Ale...$11.99 / 6 pack
In 1971, the Waldos met one afteroon at 4:20 in the front courtyard of their school near the statue of Louis Pasteur.

They never found the secret garden....But they keep lookin'. The dankest and hoppiest beer ever brewed at Lagunitas was made with help of the Waldos for all treasure hunters.

Wagner Family Wine Sampler

All of the wineries were started by the Wagner Family that brought you Caymus and Mer Soleil. They do not own them all anymore. But they are all great wines!

Wagner Family Wine Sampler

Regular price - 1 of each above is = $100.90
Special price for $90 plus tax for the 6 bottles

2017 Meiomi Pinot Noir $14.98
Compare to $15.97 at Total Wine and More
Soft berry nose; spicy, rich and long. A crisp, clean blend from three important appellations (Monterey, Santa Barbara, and Sonoma), each of which imparts a special character. Aged six months in 100% French oak.
Rated 92/100 The Tasting Panel

2016 Meiomi Chardonnay...$12.98
Greenish gold color with a ripe nose; clean and sleek; sweet with silky texture and subtle acidity; refreshing, juicy, and long from a winery that balances the best fruit of Sonoma, Monterey, and Santa Barbara counties.
Rated 90/100 Tasting Panel

Boen Chardonnay Tri-Appellation...$19.99
compare to $21.99 at Total Wine and More
We are the lowest price in the Country on Wine-Searcher
Sonoma, Monterey, Santa Barbara Chardonnay
Opulent flavors with a silky, alluring texture, flavors of apricot, lemon-cream tart and vanilla. The California Böen Chardonnay is elegant and lingerings on the palette.

Boen Pinot Noir...$19.99
“BÖEN is a translation of ‘The Farm’ and I chose it as a reminder to myself that the wine I make is indivisible from the land it comes from and that first and foremost, I am a farmer.”
– Joseph Wagner, Winemaker

Conundrum Red...$17.98
Conundrum White...$14.98

The original red and white blends!

BBQ Wine Sampler

BBQ Wine Sampler pack!

Regular price - 1 of each above is = $85.94
Special price for $75 plus tax for the 6 bottles

2017 Almarada Malbec Uco Valley...$13.99
Maybe this isn't the most subtle wine in Argentina, but it has a lot going for it. Plenty of orange peel and dried cranberry on the nose of the bold palate. Drink now.
Rated 90/100 James Suckling

2018 Domaine de Servans Cotes du Rhone....$13.99

Vines average 40 years in age. The grapes are harvested by hand with a hand triage to select only the best quality grapes.
The Graniers decided to continue to increase the percentage of Syrah in their blend. This increase has given the wine added depth and concentration, without sacrificing balance in the wine. In the mouth, rich blackberry notes give way to red cherry and black pepper spice. Even with the increased percentage of Syrah, the tannins are very supple and round in the finish. This is a classic example of a Côtes du Rhône, ideal for backyard barbeque, burgers on the grill, or even pizza

2018 Nugan Third Generation Shiraz...$12.99
Deep purple in appearance with youthful crimson hues. Lifted ripe berry fruit aromas, with hints of earth, pepper and dark chocolate complimented by sweet red berry fruit flavours with spice and a silky tannin finish.

2017 Le Grand Valmal Cotes du Rhone Villages Vieilles Vignes...$16.99
60% Syrah, 20% Grenache, 20% Mourvedre
This Rhone is the real deal and a sensational value!
Floral notes accent fresh mixed berries in this 2017 Cotes du Rhone Villages that is made from Old Vine Syrah, Grenache and Mourvedre. The Syrah dominates and leads to a full-bodied wine but with silky tannins. It has a slight pepperiness to add some dimension and complexity. This wine is produced by the third generation on this estate and it is a fruit driven Cotes du Rhone with great roundness and complexity.

2015 Domaine de L'Arboussa Maury Sec...$14.99
Lowest price on Wine-Searcher is $19.99
Mostly from the home property of Serge Soulatge, who’s one of the driving forces behind the quality of the Domaine Cabirau wines, the 2015 Maury Sec got a big “wow” in the notes and offers sensational aromas and flavors of cassis, ripe blackberries, spice and spring flowers. With medium to full-bodied richness, ultra-fine tannin and just beautiful purity, it’s a no brainer that should be on reader's short list.
Rated 91-93/100 The Wine Advocate

2015 Laurence Feraud (Pegau) Cotes du Rhone...$12.99
On sale - was $15.99
The 2015 Côtes du Rhône Sélection Laurence Féraud offers lots of peppery, leather and garrigue characteristics in a medium to full-bodied, classy, charming style. Drink it over the coming 2-4 years
Rated 88/100 The Wine Advocate
Laurence Féraud owns and manages Domaine du Pegau, the iconic Châteauneuf-du-Pape estate.

Regular price - 1 bottle of each below is = $80.94
Special price for $70 plus tax for the 6 bottles

1 bottle each of the wines below

2016 Cave des Onze Valle d'Aoste Cornalin...$19.99
Grape: Cornalin 100%
Organically grown
Made from 100% Cornalin, which is a widely planted indigenous variety of the Valle d’Aosta, the 2016 Valle d’Aosta Cornalin offers a more transparent character as well as a Nebbiolo-like style in its cherry, crushed rocks, spice , and floral aromas and flavors. Medium-bodied, fresh, lively, and with obvious minerality, drink it over the 4-5 years.
Rated 90/100 Jeb Dunnuck

Jackpot Vinho Regional Lisboa Red Blend...$9.99
Grapes: 75% Aragones and 25% Castelao

Made exclusively from indigenous Lisboan grapes, this easy-drinking, good-looking, well-balanced Portuguese wine will quickly become the talk of the town. The grapes ripen slowly producing a rich, juicy wine loaded with red fruits. Well balanced and delicious. We bet you you’ll like it.  Lisbon has always been about discoveries. The Atlantic Ocean gave the city every reason to explore, learn from, and engage with other cultures. It also gave it every reason to be the strength of Portugal’s empire that spread across the world.

2017 Almarada Malbec Uco Valley...$13.99
Grape: Malbec
Maybe this isn't the most subtle wine in Argentina, but it has a lot going for it. Plenty of orange peel and dried cranberry on the nose of the bold palate. Drink now.
Rated 90/100 James Suckling

2014 Vinestral Rioja Joven...$8.99

Grapes: Tempranillo and Garnacha
Viñestral is crafted by Bodegas Marqués de Reinosa, a quality-conscious cooperative founded in the town of Autol (Rioja Baja) in 1956. The wines are great values, offering plenty of classic Rioja character in a ripe and satisfying style that is sure to please.
Tasting Notes: This youthful red offers aromas of strawberry, blackberry and cherry with light mineral and licorice notes, soft tannins, and a long, fresh finish. Serve With: Soft and fruity enough to be enjoyed on its own, this versatile red is also excellent with tapas and a wide range of red meats.

2018 Nugan Third Generation Shiraz...$12.99

Grapes: Shiraz
Deep purple in appearance with youthful crimson hues. Lifted ripe berry fruit aromas, with hints of earth, pepper and dark chocolate complimented by sweet red berry fruit flavours with spice and a silky tannin finish.

2015 Domaine de L'Arboussa Maury Sec...$14.99

Grapes: Grenache and Syrah
Lowest price on Wine-Searcher is $19.99
Mostly from the home property of Serge Soulatge, who’s one of the driving forces behind the quality of the Domaine Cabirau wines, the 2015 Maury Sec got a big “wow” in the notes and offers sensational aromas and flavors of cassis, ripe blackberries, spice and spring flowers. With medium to full-bodied richness, ultra-fine tannin and just beautiful purity, it’s a no brainer that should be on reader's short list.

2017 Mariposa Dao White Wine...$13.99
Bright, citrusy with a surprisingly elegant texture. Quinta da Mariposa White showcases the Dao region to a tee. A blend of three of the region’s dominant grapes, the wine brings to life white magnolia notes with honeysuckle and lime. Kind of like drinking a field of wild flowers…all year round. Unoaked.

2019 Stratum Waipara Valley Sauvignon Blanc...$11.99
Boasting attractive herbal notes of snow peas and cut grass layered over nectarine-like fruit, the 2019 Stratum Sauvignon Blanc is a medium-bodied, slightly chalky-textured example of the variety. Moderately concentrated, it appears to have the stuffing to hold in bottle for a couple of years. At the recommended retail price of $13, it's a terrific bargain.Rated 88/100 The Wine Advocate

2018 Horgelus Côtes Gascogne de Blanc....$9.99
40% Sauvignon and 60% Gros Manseng

We taste so many Cotes de Gascogne and most are just boring and insipid. Horgeuls is exciting and vibrant!
The estate is run now by Yoan Le Menn, his son. Yoan represents the younger generation of oenologists who work tirelessly to combine modernity and experience. The biggest task is preserving of the aromas by limiting, as much as possible, all forms of oxidation of the “must” and the wines. For this reason the grapes are harvested early in the morning – from 3am to 11 am – in order to take advantage of the cool air. On the other hand, the carbon dioxide from the alcoholic fermentation is recuperated to protect the newly pressed juice. From the grape to the bottling process, everything is designed to preserve the fruity flavors and freshness of our wines.
