This stuff is awful. I'd suggest waiting for a royal oak deal, a kj roadshow at costco
, or bjs usually has frontier which has while not great seems better than cowboy. Every time I've used this I've found rocks and other weird debris in the bags.

I disagree with the above. The deal isn't totally compelling, but I get lots of rocks in royal oak too. I grill nearly 4x a week and this stuff is fine. Get what you can get while you can get it.

I used to think these stories were BS until I bought into the hype and finally purchased a bag last year... sure enough, found a few bent nails and what looked like part of a wire hanger twisted around one of the "lumps."

No trouble returning the unused portion to Lowe's the next day. Everyone at the customer service counter had a good chuckle about the "100% ALL NATURAL" claim on the bag...

(Clearly, this is not going to be the case with every bag... I know that. Just thought it was funny that I found debris in mine after poo-pooing the claims for several years.)

The rocks were the least concerning objects I've found.

This is quoted from a review by nakedwhiz
We continue to find strange things in Cowboy charcoal. If it weren't for concerns about strange items in bags of Cowboy, it might have barely squeaked up into the recommended rating. We have no idea what this is, but here it is for your viewing pleasure:

take naked whiz reviews with a grain of salt. the glowing review for royal oak was from 2002... Roll Eyes (Sarcastic) all their other reviews are less than stellar from Royal Oak. they rate royal oak the same as their 2013 review of cowboy, actually lower.

they also stated this:
Update (08/03/13): Cowboy has changed the charcoal that is sold in this packaging. It is no longer the scraps from milling operations such as molding and flooring. Rather it is the more conventional lump made from tree limbs, etc. We are doing a review of the new lump which comes in this bag. However, according to the Cowboy Charcoal website, they now sell the traditional milling scrap as "Cowboy Gold". We have yet to get our hands on some to review, but we are looking.....

as such, i'll actually try it so I can give it a real chance. you seem to be on the hate cowboy cool-aide train that's been around for years....

Kids use this stuff for chalk type drawings on the concrete. A bit messy to clean up than Kingsford
