Enormous Piece of Cowboy lump!!!

Probably nothng new to you seasoned veterans, but I came across a huge piece of lump in my new bag of Cowboy lump tonight. It was a 10 lb bag and damn near took up 20% of the bag! Take a look below. I am not sure this comparison does it justice but you get the idea. I should have turned it the other way--- it was really thick. Do you just throw this in on the bottom of a long cook or break it up?

  • I have had a few that big in my lump. I have an XL but, I just dump it from the bag to the fire box. No need in having a fit over how to start a fire.
    Be careful, man! I've got a beverage here.

    I'm calling B.S. on this.  The fact that the beer has a cap on it is a dead give-away that it is photoshopped. 

    :D

    Capped means empty and/or covering the smell of my buddies putting out cigs in beer bottles on my porch. This egg has turned my house into a fraternity house :-w

    Sweetwater Beer is the best...and that is one impressive piece of lump.  :D

  • i agree with Ragtop

  • Bunch of guys bragging about the size of their lumps.... you know, it's not really about the length of your lump, it's about what you do with it!

    I can assure you it is not photoshopped... why would I take the time to do that? If I took the time to photoshop the image, I would have cleaned up that nice drop of BBQ sauce on the wood beside it! What a damn slob...

  • Cowboy is notorious for weird stuff....NakedWiz has pictures of plywood found in a bag of Cowboy, and I have found rocks. Royal Oak is my go to for the Egg...it's not the best for every application, but I would call it the SWiss Army Knife of charcoal.

    That piece of Cowboy lump reminds me of me...

    I have found multiple rocks in my Cowboy. Is this common?

    Hey.... How about Sweetwater Motorboat ...................
  • I unfortunately had to buy two bags of Cowboy (I prefer Royal Oak or Wegmans lump which is RO so I am told))and the large lump like what the OP has shown is what I got as well along with a few rock.  It is what it is, but these comments do not surprise me based upon my personal experience.

    rocks in pretty much all lump, eventually.
    no worries.

    In the past two months, I have been though 20lbs of BGE lump, 40lbs of RO, and 20lbs of Cowboy. Cowboy has by far the most consistent pieces. All of the RO I have gotten from WW have been very tiny pieces and the BGE had some large pieces but mainly small. I have had plugged vent holes only twice and both were with RO. Maybe I have been lucky, but experience has been better with Cowboy so far.
