Big Green Egg - EGGhead Forum - The Ultimate Cooking Experience...
We hope you all got to celebrate those tasty food holidays last week, we sure enjoyed them! We are even more excited about the beginning of fall, for so many reasons, but mainly for experiencing the cool, crisp air while being outside cooking up the best recipes the season has to offer. We especially love these Beer Pork Tenderloin and Ground Beef Acorn Squash recipes! Fall is upon us, and it's a great time for getting out to one of the many #EGGfests around the country - see a list here

Cowboy 100% hardwood lump

What's the story with this stuff?  I bought a 20lb bag at Lowes after reading the Naked Whiz review saying it was all lumber mill scrap.  What I got looks like mostly if not entirely tree parts (limb pieces with bark)...not scraps of milled wood.  It also looks enough like mesquite (and the Made in Mexico doesn't give me any warm fuzzies) that I'm afraid to use it.  We really dislike mesquite flavor, so I'm reluctant to cook anything of importance over it.

Seems like both here and on Amazon, the reviews for this stuff are pretty consistently the point that I get the impression some people would rather cook their stakes in the oven if it's a choice between that or Cowboy.

For those who have used it recently (especially if you picked it up at Lowes), I'm curious what your take is on it?  Also, if anyone knows, is this mesquite or something else, I'd love to know.
