LR rubble

Well, instead of buying something labeled LR rubble.. is there any way i can buy an extra few lbs of LR to make it rubble? Is there a way to like, i hate to use this word.. but "smash" it to make it rubble? Or at least pull some pieces apart and such?

Let me know what you guys think

If you get LR from your LFS then you might be able to get the rubble cheaper/lb. if not, yes just take a rubber mallet and smash it.

Depending on the density of the rock, I would say a hammer might work better...At least that's what I use.

Just put a towel around it and beat it with the hammer and that way a piece dont come flying up in your eye. Safety first.

I headbutt it. It's a very manly way to create LR rubble.

I'm a wimp tho, I do wrap it in a towel before I smash it.
