I tore open a bag of the Cowboy lump i got from Lowes as the price match to the TruValue sale. The bags I purchased were made in Mexico and for some reason had a different sku at Lowes than it did on the TruValue ad but Lowes still price matched it.
I was very happy with the quality of the cowboy lump. It was all chunks of tree and not scrap wood and not a lot of chips and dust. The pieces were definitely lighter than Wicked Good Weekend Warrior but heavier than Royal Oak. I light up a chimney worth and didn't get a spark show that I have gotten with Royal Oak, but it did have a smell to it (but nothing off putting).
I went to see how long the lump would go and to as I thought, it goes longer than the Royal Oak, but shorter than the Wicked Good. For $9 for a 20lb bag I would definitely buy this over Royal Oak.
