I was in Home Depot a couple of weeks back and noticed they had Cowboy. I knew I was running low on lump, so picked up a few bags.
The first bag I opened was different from what I had experienced previously with this brand, i.e., millwork scraps. This was more like Royal Oak. Large pieces and was very sparky on lighting with a lot of smoke and acrid smell (VOCs) before settling down.
I'm at bag four now and it is still the same. I know they had a fire at the plant awhile back, but is there a new business model?
