Cowboy Oak & Hickory Hardwood Lump Charcoal is made from one ingredient - wood. Made in the USA, we use only the highest quality oak and hickory hardwoods.
Enjoy the flavors of the open range. Across the western frontier, chuck wagon chefs grilled over aromatic wood fires and created “cowboy cuisine.” Our sauces descend from those heritage recipes. They enhance grilled food rather than overpower it. Pair with beef, pork, and poultry, and everything in between.
Cowboy All Natural Range Style Hardwood Briquets provide long-lasting, even heat while adding the authentic, smoky flavor of hardwood. They are all natural – no fillers, chemicals, or additives. Other standard briquets contain “coal and chemical” ingredients, as well as fillers like limestone. Discover the natural difference of Cowboy All Natural Hardwood Briquets!
