Royal Oak ain't that bad.  Its not as good as Ozark Oak, but its good enough. I've just had a bad experience with that Cowboy stuff, and it was bad enough I won't try it again (even if it was a fluke).

I've heard enough bad stuff about Cowboy that I just won't even try it.  I'm hopeful that the RO we get in nw AR might just be OO in a different bag based on what an earlier poster posted.  I suppose if it becomes a big deal I can always run over to Flippin or Yellville and run by his plant and pick up several bags and bring them back.   Several months ago we toyed with the idea of buying a pallet or two of the stuff and splitting it up but I don't really have a place I can store 20 bags.

I've used the Cowboy brand, and it's not too terribly bad.  The issue I've always had with it is that the bottom 1/4 of the bag is basically gravel sized chunks that are useless.  I've switched to Royal Oak and it's pretty good really.  Not too many small pieces and burns really well so far.

OK, Officially done with Cowboy brand. Against the advice of several here, I gave them a try so I could speak firsthand. As has been mentioned, about a quarter of the bag is indeed useless pea sized gravel. However, the largest piece in the bag was actually a rock!! It probably accounted for 10-15% of the total weight. Never again, really miss Ozark Oak. I guess Royal Oak will be my go to, ash and all.

I've switched to RO since OO went out of business or changed names. Did 4 10lb pork butts a couple weeks ago and got a fist size rock out of fire basket when I was done.

RO did buy OO out. They use the same slabs from local sawmills. What I've seen of it looks just like OO charcoal....

I've switched over to RO and haven't missed a beat.  Looks and cooks like the OO of old.  I found a 17 1/2 pound bag of it at the Supercenter for a little less than $10.  The price is very good.  A bag that size of BGE Charcoal will run you $20+

BGE lump is RO

If true than BGE is a rip off.  Cause Royal Oak usually cheaper than even Kingsford at my Walmart.

I know that before Ozark Oak sold to RO, they were bagging some of their charcoal for BGE......

Yes BGE does this with many products they sale.  They take a quality product, put their logo on it and jack the price up.  Same with the lump you buy at Kroger; made by RO.  THE NAKED WHIZ lump database has pretty good info.  They say that RO may save their "best" lump for BGE.  I don't believe that.  I do believe the larger bag you buy, typically you get larger peices of lump without the small dusty peices.  So, all that being said, you can't beat a 17.6 lb bag of RO at Home Depot for 12.97.  Or you can go to your local BGE dealer and get a 20lb have for upwards $22.  If I'm gonna spend that much, it's gonna be on some Wicked Good Weekend Warior for my low slows.

And like Boar said, Walmart does sell it at crazy cheap prices from time to time.  And when they do, I buy it all 😂

I wonder which brand Rod Taylor takes.

Quote
Oxford Police Department officer Steven Lewis wrote in a report obtained Tuesday by The Clarion-Ledger that Walmart loss prevention employee Gary Ferguson told Lewis that Taylor rang up items in a self-checkout line, paid for those items and then placed items he had not paid for into plastic bags he then put into his shopping cart.

The items in question, according to the report, were: two cans of baked beans; onions; potatoes; a 12-pack of grape soda; Ocean Spray juice; hamburger meat and one bag of charcoal.

I'm a fan of Rockwood charcoal.  It's a bit expensive but burns really clean and hot with very little ash.

It's not easy to find.  I had to order some bags direct and have them shipped.  I bet you could find it more readily available in TX.  Again, you're going to pay for it, so be warned.  But it's great charcoal.  Be warned though, it burns hot and clean.  There will hardly be any smoke/grill flavor unless you add some.  It barely gives off much smoke.  I like it because if I'm cooking pizza or dessert on the grill, it doesn't get a smoky flavor.  But I can add whatever smoking wood I want and get a controlled smoke.

Got to mow Sat morning and going to fire up Mr. Weber in the afternoon unless we get rained out.  Then the Coleman RoadTrip will get hooked up and I will cook in the garage.   With the door open and my lounge chair handy.
