Last bags I got years ago there was rocks, looked like plywood scraps, trim scraps, some actu hardwood and who knows what else.
Cowboy lump has really stepped up there game. They are better quality than the Royal Oak bags as of late.
The 2 bags of cowboy I have used since I picked some up from the sale have been great. They are all chunks from trees, no scrap wood. There wasn't any type of debris like rocks or insulation in them either. The wood isn't quite as dense as Wicked Good, but it is definitely much more dense than Royal Oak.
I have been disappointed with RO lately as the stuff you mentioned, plywood scraps, trim scraps, rocks and lots of dust have been regulars in the bags I had used before switching to Wicked Good.
I tried out Cowboy because it was onsale and the new Made In Mexico bags had good pictures and reviews from other Brethren. I would suggest that you give it a try before you swear it off again. For $8.10 at Lowes (price match + 10% off) for a 20lb bag, I will say you can not go wrong.
