Thanks for the comparison.

Assuming the RO was the US/Brazillian blend?

What surprises me most about the Cowboy lump in your picture is the absence of the following items:

*plastic ribbons (common)
*big nails
*fiberglass insulation or something resembling it
*concrete chunks (common)
*rocks (common)

You got lucky.

Dumn question from a n00b. Do we want big pieces of lump? Some of the pieces in the last bag I had (Sams) would barely fit in my chimney! Does it matter at all?

IMHO you want some large pieces. Now it does depend on how “LARGE” of pieces you are talking about. I’ve had a few that I had to take a hammer to but mostly don’t bother. (But I don't use a chimmey) I like a mixture of different sizes. I use some large pieces for the base of my pile. Then use medium size pieces to fill in and expand the pile and finally fill in with small pieces. This method seems to give me the best air flow in my kamado.

Thanks man. My initial thoughts were it didn't really matter.

You can always make the big pieces smaller...
Making the smaller pieces bigger not so much

it is very dense, ashy, and has a smoky flavor compared to Royal Oak. it does heat up
particularly fast. The big bags leak dust through the walls. I don't love it but the price is right.

Little observation i made last night while loading my coal pan up for tonights cook. The Royal Oak lump feels so light, per coal, not the bag. It almost feels hollow, If you compare the two bags, RO V.S Cowboy you can see the RO is alot more packed, trying to reach the 8.8 pounds, Why is this. Every other lump ive used is alot more dense/heavy.
