    I have used it. Cowboy burns a little fast, so you'll probably need to add fuel a little more often. On the plus side, it produces very little ash.

    Hope this helps!

    Check out this site for review of Cowboy. Poke around the site to see reviews of other brands.

    I agree with Meowy, it burns fast & very little ash ........ But I continue to use it. Seems to be in all the stores here also.
     
  4. I've used Cowboy and Royal Oak. Cowboy burns quicker, but produces very little ash compared to briquettes. Royal Oak in my experience burns slower, and a little hotter, and makes just a touch more ash than the Cowboy. However they both cost about the same. I'm personally looking in to getting some of that wicked good charcoal others have talked about. Long, steady burn and almost no ash. Can't go wrong there ehhh?

    I've used the Cowboy brand in a pinch, when I couldn't get my usual stuff. It works okay, but doesn't last long. Lowes has it here for $4.99/10# bag... that makes it a little more attractive...

    I was at our local Gander Mountain and they have a store close out on 6.6 pound bags of new improved Western hardwood lump charcoal for $3.99. Just curious if that is a good price and also if it is, wanted to give everyone the heads up.

    is there a place you can buy this lump charcoal online? Everystore I've been in around here has no idea what I'm talking about. The carry geniric charcoal and then kingsford charcoal but no lump.

    I just bought their weekend warrior lump...it was rated #6 (I think) on the http://www.nakedwhiz.com/lumprankpoll.htm ratings.

    I ordered it on last tuesday, and it arrived by thursday. I used it this past weekend...it was awesome! For a 6 hour, 3 re-fuel smoke, there wasn't even enough ash produced to reach the grate of a stock Char Griller SFB (and we know how low they are).
