    Used some of this lump over the week past. Am not really impressed with it. So far the chunks are so big that you have to take them out of the bag one at a time. One was so large that it rubbed on both sides of the basket and was probably six inches thick and seven to eight inches wide. It wasn't charred enough that I could break it up any smaller and also found a stick probably two inches in dia. and ten inches long that was was charred very little if any. Didn't get any pics and wish I had, but the drum ran hotter than usual but the 30 mph winds we have been having probably helped that. Will use the rest of the bag eventually but probably won't buy any more.

    I have noticed that the bigger the bag, the more big pieces you get. In 10 lb bags you get more uniform chunks. I just noticed that Krogers in this area have BOW in smaller bags; maybe 8 lbs.

    Man, with a statement like that this could go to the BOTB, but I won't.

    I am still working on my first 40# bag, but concur with most of waht has been said. It does however, seem to burn hot, and once I got the burn figured out and damped down, I can get 4 hours out of a chimney.

    I'm just getting into the bag I bought a couple months ago. Same issue. Huge chunks. At least they're "done" through, so no issues there. They bust easy enough, but a bit of a PITA to have to deal with...

    Just about the time I got it all dialed in, Sams quit selling it. Along with the 40#bags of Frontier. That leaves me with 20# bags of Cowboy for $14, or 20# of BGE for the low price of $24. I actually been using blue bag for most quick apps now.
