Fresh Market Lump

AcnAcn Posts: 670
Does anybody have any experience with The Fresh Market's store brand lump? Our local store has it on sale for $4.99/9 lb bag. Got one to try, but if anyone had a glowing report I might go ahead and stock up

Thanks!

  • I used it a week ago. Not terrible but I wouldn't go out of my way to purchase again unless the price was outstanding.

    10 years ago, it was Cowboy.  I don't know about now.  Does it say anything on the bag?  I'll be reviewing the new Cowboy soon, FWIW.

    I use it often. It has a great flavor. Seems to burn down pretty quick tho.

  • I have used it once. While it performed okay, there were many smaller pieces in the mix. Not as much medium/large. I had to buy it in a pinch.

    Just out of curiosity, when did you buy the bag, and was it like the old cowboy (looks like childrens play blocks) or like normal lump?

    @TheNakedWhiz I got a couple of bags a few weeks ago, but just opened and started using it this week.  It looks like normal lump and as noted above, it worked pretty well; started easily, burned VOCs quickly and was solid.  I've only done chicken breast and burgers this week, so I've stayed in the 375-425 range, so I can't comment on it's performance at the temp extremes, or an extended cook (although I can report on it when I do some ribs on Monday).

  • Speaking of Cowboy, does anyone live in Apex, NC and want to check the TJ Maxx to see if they have the Cowboy Gold or whatever they call it?  I just can't imagine calling them and getting a correct answer.
