Cowboy® Hardwood Lump

Hardwood Lump Charcoal is rated 3.9 out of 5 by 87.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Been using it for years Just bought a new bag 4/13/18 from my local Walmart. Did a 7 LB pork butt at the typical 250-300 deg 6 hrs. I am tossing the whole roast now. Tastes like a truck tailpipe. No chemical starter used, just real oak wood chips. What happened to quality control?????

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Flavor Great easy lighting Have used this charcoal for past year, the last two bags I have found what seems to be rock mixed in the bag I even found a metal band. Way to much junk mixed into the charcoal. To bad there isn't a better quality control the charcoal itself is great I just don't like paying top dollar for rocks and metal junk

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Found slate or fire brick in my charcoal Bad quality control if they didn’t catch this. Read a couple reviews where someone found metal chunks but figured it was a one off instance but apparently foreign objects in the charcoal is more common then I thought. Both are about 4 inches long and are either slate or fire brick. Concerns me on what else could be in there.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Bad Product I grill every day and I make my own lump charcoal I ran out due to bad weather I didn't get more made so I bought a bag of Cowboy Lump. This stuff stinks horrible and burns with a smokey flame and you stink like a coal burning train. It also makes tons of sparks. I wrecked $15 worth of lamb due to the flames this stuff puts out. Pure Charcoal has no flames or smoke I've made tons of the stuff. Also don't call the 800 number on the bag you won't get any one just telemarketers.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Legit Charcoal Without a doubt the best I've ever used. Blows the two other big brands out of the water. I will never use anything else. Long burn time. Would be great for large pieces of meat. Excellent flavor.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My favorite no matter what im cooking From smoking to grilling this is my go to charcoal. Love everything about it not sure why there can be any complaints unless your looking for fake charcoal. Lump is going to crack and smoke, its not for everyone but if you want to get as close as possible to true outdoor raw cooking the either chop down a tree lol or grab a bag of cowboy.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Small Chips- lots of dust The “lumps” were more look like chips, not any moderate or large lumps. A lot of dust. Not good for use in BGE, not enough airflow because the charcoal was so small.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Crumbs What's going on with your bags of crumbs? Last 3 bags had NO wood chunks just full bags of crumbs. Do I have to go back to Royal Oak??

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Quality control Very poor quality, you get some good pieces but have the bags are small broken pieces. Shake is useless for cooking, red oak brand is way better. I bbq once week tried your brand for roasting a pig, had to use more than necessary sorry but I will not use or recommend your brand.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not enough lump I have been using this product for about a year now, I like the way it cooks and the flavor! However this last 4-5 bags have been more small pieces then lump! I pour mine in a container when first bought so I can keep it dry, and have notice the difference lately! Would love to continue to use it if there was more lump! But if not I will research other brands!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Lump? I bought a 34 lb. bag of Southern Style Lump Hardwood at a local retailer a few months ago and finally opened the bag which has been sitting motionless in the garage since purchased. I'm was very disappointed to discover that the so-called lumps were no larger than an average briquet.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the Lump Cowboy Lump is one of the best on the market. The first thing you will see when you open a bag is that there are big lumps included, not just shake. I like to think I do a lot of grilling and know a good product. It burns perfectly for my needs for things such as steaks, burgers and chicken. It leaves a great taste on the food which is why I like to use Cowboy Hardwood Lump.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Bonus Been using another brand. The Cowboy lump burned hotter, cleaner, longer and with better aroma. The lump size was ideal and consistent. Bonus - I got a charred hammer handle in my first bag.

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.
