    Default Crap Alert!

    If you see this stuff, do not buy it, it's craaaaaaap. It has a very funky smell and taste. If you like, sorry. It replaced cowboy lump at Lowes here in OKC.

    Thanks for the heads up!!!

    Cowboy sucks too, IMO. I bought it once and found a lot of weird chit in there, rocks a large nail, and even what looked like a piece of coral. Too many small pieces and a lot of dust as well.

    Since I found Ozark Oak, I just haven't tried many others.

    I tried B&B a while back and it really had a funky smell and flavor and the pieces were either huge or tiny.

    Kingsford lump is still the absolute worst I have tried. It burns like fireworks.

    As of a month ago I cannot find Ozark Oak here in the city. Sure, they make lump labeled for Hasty Bake, but it's about $10.00/bag. I might not have a choice now, my options here in OKC are very limited.

    Kev,

    Mistakes - It could be that the purpose of your life is only to serve as a warning to others.
