I’ve heard that cowboy is bad. Is this not trueCowboy Natural 2x20 is $17.92 now at my local Walmart. I still have a stash of KBB 2x20s from the good old days of $9.99.
Buy on sale and buy in volume. Re-use all used charcoal from the WSM in your kettle. Watch for sales all the time.
Very rare for a charcoal to be so bad as to be unusable. If it’s a good price, that’s the time to try it. Opinions will vary, but yours is the one that matters for you.
At one time, Cowboy Lump had a reputation of poor quality. The natural Cowboy briquet has performed well without rocks, plastic film or scrap flooring. No bad smells or odors on start-up. It burns well under controlled low oxygen smoking. No sparking or popping during light up. Ash is not excess. Every other week I buy a twin pack. I have no complaints.
The end product s what it's all about. Flavor is always my top concern. As for burning cooler and faster, the price should more than make up for that. Just use a bit more.I just got finished using it. It’s not bad but not amazing. The temps were lower than kingsford and they burned up a bit quicker but they smell much better and make the food taste better.
Dang! That's awesomeI'm still burning off this stash from back in the day when twin packs would go on sale for $9.99. For probably one year, if they went on sale, I bought. These days, given my use of pellets, splits of wood, LP, and just the two of us now, I'm probably set for many more years
