I went to a True Value a little while ago. It is a bit out of the way as there are none close to me. The Cowboy was not on sale there, even though they had it in stock. I was told they are not a participating True Value store, whatever that means. But if I bring in a flyer or web print out from the True Value site they would match the price.

Moral of the story, call first just to be safe.

I called my local true value and they are not participating in the promotion. Nor will they accept a site to store delivery. Not exactly the kind of service you would expect from a local, family owned shop. Then again, its their business to run as they please. I may call the true value in the town down the road and hope for better luck.

Better yet, I stopped at Lowes who agreed to price match the promo. I "only" picked up three bags.

Nice! I thought about asking for that, but didn't want to sound greedy. Lol

Did you bring a print out of the web price or a Tru Value flyer? I hadn't thought of price matching it at Lowes.

So many lump deals and so little time to cook!! I wish the price of beef would drop like the price of lump these days.

I did the same thing "love BBQ" did; load the true value listing & sale price on my phone and show it to the lead cashier.

Just bought 3 20lb bags from Lowes. The HD near me only had 8.8lb bags at $7.99... 20lbs for 8.99, can't beat that. I've had good luck with CowBoy so far. Thanks for the find!!!

Lol.

I stated a month ago that I was transitioning from KBB to lump, and man, this is a GREAT time to do it w/ the price of lump dropping all around me.

There's Mali's (from near Buffalo) for $10.99/20#, but only 1 pallet at 1 nearby store; there's that older, semi-beat Wicked Good for $10/22# at the Ocean State Job Lot chain, and now this Cowboy, which is listed on all the stores' websites around me but I can't confirm if it's in stock until tomorrow.

I've never bought Cowboy, but have used two bags of it that came w/ used grills I bought, and both bags seemed okay to me.

Good lump for <$.50/#....bye bye KBB.

Btw, I'm LOVING the reduction of ash by using lump. That alone is worth the higher price to me.

I went to my nearest Lowe's with a copy of the True Value ad in hand. And they had no 20lb bags of Cowboy, just the smaller ones!! So far I have made two trips, one to True Value and one to Lowe's and I have come home empty handed both times! That's about 50 miles of driving total for zilch. I would have been better off going to Ace down the street and paying full price.
