I picked up some of this lump charcoal from Trader Joe's. I haven't had a chance to try it but thought for the price, what the heck.
It is a blend of oak, hickory and maple. The ad says it burns hot and lights easy. If you have had any experience with Cowboy Charcoal, let me know. Drop me a comment about how long it burns,use in a smoker or grill, etc.
