It doesn’t get much hotter than the EGG cookin’ in July! Make sure to keep yourself hydrated with a bit of whatever you’re using for the Beer Can Chicken. Ice Cream Sandwiches are also a great way to stay cool. Looking for some great ideas for a summer cook out? Try out a Pimento Cheeseburger or Dr. BBQ’s Spare Rib Surprise. Just don’t be surprised if your neighbors stop by for a quick bite when they smell what you’re cooking!

  • Re: Cowboy lump review

    Cowboy was my only choice for a while in my area.  I didn't like seeing wood flooring cutoffs in the early years (about 4 years ago), but it still burned well, although a little sparky.  My Wallyworld started carrying RO, and had it on sale for $5/8.8# bag last year, so I bought a bunch.  Saw that Lowes had Cowboy in 20# bags for $9.99, so I bought a few of those bags.  It's been fine, lights as easy as RO for me, and now that it's not a bag of hardwood floor cutoffs, it has similar makeup of larges and dust as the RO.  I use veg oil and a paper towel with all my lump.  I'm thinking you may have gotten a bad bag?  On another note, the worst lump I've gotten has been an off brand that was mesquite lump.  I thought it was good in the beginning, but talk about a strong smoke flavor.  It took over everything I cooked on it.
