We hope everyone enjoyed their Fourth of July weekend and is excited for more warm weather grilling! This week, we’ll be making these two burgers: Stuffed Portobello Mushroom and Caribbean Chicken, and also eating lots of these Ice Cream Sandwiches in honor of National Ice Cream Month! It's time to think about getting out to one of the many #EGGfests around the country - see a list here

  • 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.
