Just picked up a bag of cowboy at ACE today for a bbq before the -20 in the northwoods of Wisconsin tomorrow.... I have used Both RO and CB and often had crappy bags of coal... But today the CB was awsome big chunks and clean!!

Proabbly best bag i got in 2 years....


I started buring my own wood down to make some coal.. then you know its truely good wood..... so this is the first bag i have got in 6 - 7 months.....

28 out side with 25mph wind and smoking!!! What a great day!

I posted a similar experience last month. I had a 25% off coup at Ace and decided WTH. I was doing a hot and fast brisket so I did 50/50 Cowboy with briquettes and was really impressed. It was better than the RO I've had the last year. Now if I could just get my hands on more coupons...

I too used to rag on cowboy lump for it's low quality. I even adopted someone else's story of finding a cabinet hinge in the bag... for funzzies.
Last Aug I needed lump in a pinch and went to Lowes and bought the large bag of Cowboy. The stuff was excellent. Huge chucks.. I mean huge! Think old oil can size chunks that I put aside for long smokes. The rest was nice size and very little dust and crumbs. It's nice to see a company turn a product around. How 'bout them Cowboys!

Default Love this stuff

Been grilling all year with Cowboy from a local store here in Michigan. Probably used 10 bags or more. Never a hint of trouble. In fact, comparing it to royal oak earlier in the year the Cowboy stuff blew it away. Consistent excellent results.

Ribbit! I mean, Trout!!


I'll have to give CB another try, Lazzari and Wicked Good have been my go-to's for a couple years now, never gotten anything weird out of them... but a friend got 2 live lizards out of a bag of lazzari once, God only knows what they were up to in there...

I don't understand why you guys keep beating yourselves up about lump. Simple solution make your own.

I have only been using lump for just awhile, and my first bag was Cowboy and had good pieces throughout, but with abit of "sparking". Lateley I have been using Frontier, which has also been good, with just a tad of "sparking", which was less than CB... I have a bag of Best of the West sitting waiting for a try, once my Frontier is used up... I have not found any "junque" in any bags yet of either brand.

Hey Gore... What's that freaky effect in the very bottom picture at the top right? Is that a Balrog's whip coming out to try to get a hold of you?

I did it...I finally bought a 20lb bag at lowes. I'll give it a shot this weekend. I hope it sucks cause they only had 1 bag left, so if it's awesome, I'm probably farked because they'll be sold out when I go back. In which case, I'm obviously going to blame bigabyte.
