Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent for Smoking or Grilling Cowboy Lump Charcoal brings great flavor to any BBQ. I started out the night with a few T-bone steaks. The fire was going so well that I thought, why not put a little chicken on too. Delicious, if you haven't try Cowboy Charcoal you should.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best hardwood lump charcoal I've tried This has to be the best hardwood lump charcoal I've tried. Out of the bag it has some weight, with large solid pieces (other lump brands usually have tiny, almost weightless pieces). It was fast lighting in my charcoal chimney. One issue was that there was quite a lot of sparking when pouring the lit coals into the grill (it was like I lit a very large sparkler). But that quickly subsided and the grilling began. I made a Thai style whole chicken recipe I've wanted to try for a while. The bird was butterflied and marinated in a peppercorn, cilantro, soy and fish sauce marinade. It was served with a tamarind dipping sauce. It came out great. Charcoal performed very well, burning for well over an hour. It added a nice, subtle wood smoked flavor to the chicken.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Long lasting This charcoal is amazing. The coals lasted longer then the normal charcoal that we normally use! Burnt evenly so it cooked the food evenly. You do not have to use as many coals since the heat is very strong from them so the bag lasted us a long time. I was lucky enough to get this product at a discounted rate for my unbiased opinion.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great charcoal This charcoal is pretty amazing! I used it in my UDS and gave a nice controlled burn for 10hrs at 225. Good flavor and a nice ring that I don't get from the brickett type of fuel. This is a top grade lump!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from One of the Best!! Excellent charcoal - Burns hotter and gives a good char to the steak - Smoke flavor is a bit milder than other brands, but this is a good thing, as it allows the steak to shine - Had to split a couple chunks to 1 1/2" thick to get an even cooking distance to grill surface, but that was easy to do - I would recommend everyone try this product at least once.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Lasted a while The CHC lasted the entire cook which is great because I didn't have to add any more fuel. The negative is that it has a tendency to pop.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great for ceramic cookers The Cowboy charcoal burned great for cooks less than 4-5 hours. Slightly smaller chunks then I've been used to but had no issues getting up to temp and maintaining cook for chicken and ribs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Loved it! This charcoal was a big hit at our last cook out. The smell hole the food was cooking was amazing, the taste absolutely blew my mind. It was easy lighting, no fuss with trying to keep it hot. The food had such a wonderful smoked taste and seemed like the chicken was much more juicer instead of being dry like usual. As a food lover and someone who loves to cook and grill out, I must say this is one of the best charcoals I have ever used!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worked great for high temperature steak cooks Product had a nice mixture of medium and large lumps. After lighting in a chimney, this worked great for high heat steak cooks. Medium chunks provide quick high heat and larger pieces helped extend the burn time. I will definitely be using this product again. The flat iron steaks I cooked with this charcoal were some of best I ever cooked.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Top Notch I have only positive things to say about Cowboy Hardwood Lump Charcoal. The quality is top grade. You can tell in the flavor of the foods. It's a very natural taste. I am only a novice but I think a professional would appreciate this product as much as I did.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Greatest Lump Charcoal there is. I used this on my Char Griller Akorn cooked a few brisket points on it held 275° for 8 hours was a small cook. Used it before on all kinds of meats. And always has charcoal left for more cooks. VERY LITTLE ASH CLEAN UP AS WELL. ITS THE ONLY LUMP CHARCOAL I USE IN THE AKORN. Adds Great flavor any meats. I high recommend. Best for long cooks or smoking.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Clean burning charcoal The Cowboy Hardwood Lump Charcoal burned clean & left very little ash after smoking a 9lb pork butt. The only major smoke flavor I tasted were the pecan, apple and cherry wood chunks added for smoky flavor. I felt like the Hardwood Lump Charcoal was more pleasantly neutral than a forward leaning/harsh smoke flavor. Kudos for that! I found plenty of good sized chunks in the bag that really helped with airflow when smoking. I will definitely continue to use the Hardwood Lump Charcoal for my cooks in the future.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Exceeded expectations Used the Cowboy Hardwood Lump and was very impressed. Large pieces of lump that lit quickly with very little sparking. The flavor was on point and did an awesome job on a pair of spatchcocked chickens. Would like to run it through a long cook now that I have confidence in it. Nicely done and great product.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from very nice name Product is very good. Lumps were large and plentiful. No foreign substances (ie: nails, metal straps) found in the bag. Lump charcoal burned very hot and heat lasted for several hours. I was able to cook a 20 lb brisket hot and fast using my 55 gallon drum smoker in 3 hours without having to add any charcoal. Heat held steady at 300 degrees F and after it was completely burned out, there was very little ash residue. Overall a very good product which I will use at competitions.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product We received our Cowboy Charcoal safely wrapped and delivered to our door. It was so convenient. We decided to bbq steak kabobs and chicken kabobs so far. Both came out perfect with a great unique flavor. We would definitely purchase Cowboy Charcoal again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It's good! I had seen this product in the stores before, but had never used until now, and I.m glad I did. I direct grilled chicken with half of the bag, and it worked great. It seemed to simulate a real fire much better than briquettes. With the rest of the bag I smoked some chicken next day and with addition of a mesquite log for smoke, it went great. This is my new charcoal when it comes to grilling.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The heat it on! We tried the Cowboy Hardwood Lump Charcoal over the weekend. When we grill out we always have a variety of meats. Usually our charcoal gives out before my husband gets done. We definitely didn't have that problem this time. I LOVE this charcoal. It didn't take a lot of charcoal and it definitely kept its heat til he was finished. This will be the ONLY charcoal we buy from this day forward. I would even go to another store if I couldn't find it where I was shopping.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Old School Steak House Flavor! The smell while burning and the flavor it imparts on the meat is phenomenal! Burns super-hot, allowing for excellent searing and awesome grill marks! The taste of meats cooked with this charcoal reminded me of good ‘ole camping cookouts when I was a kid. Try this charcoal, you will not be disappointed!
