Default Best Lump you have purchased.

Being in the area I am in 20 min from Tx you would think finding good lump would not be a prob. Cowboy lump is a joke, looks like the 4th of july going off. Finally found some B&B lump at academy. Thought it was nice at first, A few fist sized pieces. Boy when It started getting hot it was like the 4th of july going off. Had the dogs running for cover. On that note what makes some spark so bad. Anyone in the East Tx, LA, AR, MS. area have any luck finding decent lump?

Has anyone used The Good One lump? I assume (look out) it's labeled for the maker of The Good One BBQ pits.

Ozark Oak has had consistently good quality for me.

Sparking isn't a bad thing get over it it is a sign that the lump is fully carbonized some will spark more than others mesquite pops a little more. Once warmed up it will stop, and when it's in the fire box who gives a RA. You got an HEB close to ya their store brand is pretty good as is the Central Market Mesquite.

So I'm still new to the BBQ scene. I keep reading that cowboy lump is no good. What makes it so bad? What makes a good lump?

I've had nature glow and wicked good and they are both very good.

Everyone who has had maple leaf raves about it. Ozark, nature glow, Good one, and wicked good are also always consistently highly praised.

I like B&B Oak a lot - I'm not really concerned about the sparking. I also get WG ship to store on occasion, and that stuff is awesome. I ordered Ozark Oak a couple times to check it out and loved it, but it's definitely not cost effective for me.

Actually, the only lump I've ever tried was Kroger's. It's actually not bad. 8 lbs for 5.99 usually. I got several when they were on sale for 3.99 last year, there wasn't too much powder but there were significant amounts of small peices. Only a few pieces of residue in the ones I got (Including steel spikes and what looked like insulation). I'm tempted to buy the BGE lump at the dealer here but I think it only comes in 40 lb bags there so storage might be an issue for me.
