    Is stubbs charcoal no more?

    I was at Lowes on Sunday & as I was checking charcoal for sales I noticed no Stubbs. There was Cowboy briquettes in its place . Same weight & price. Bag was somewhat similar as well.
    Anybody else notice this?

    I was at Loews today and there was plenty of Stubbs. I’m in Florida.

    Same charcoal.
    Cowboy has dropped the name Stubb's from their product line.

    Bob is right. It's been discontinued and replaced with Cowboy.

    I'm working on my most recent purchase of Stubb's and the last 2 bags have been filled with an unacceptable amount of charcoal dust. Hopefully it was due to improper handling but I can't help but wonder if maybe the parent company is trying to deplete its supply of Stubb's bags as fast as possible.

    Stubbs briquettes was good for sure.
    Cowboy stuff just the plain charcoal, I got some from walmart when it was $10 for 30 pounds had way too much dust in it and bits and pieces. I found an empty can of smokeless tobacco in it.

    I haven't bought cowboy lump in over 5 years or so, but I had bits of plastic all in my bag and that was all it took for me to never buy it again. I've had decent luck with Royal Oak lump but I don't use a ton of it.

    Lately, we've been using Blues Hog rather than Royal Oak lump.
