COWBOY LUMP CHARCOAL

Has anyone tried the Cowboy brand of lump charcoal? I found some today in town at a store and wondered how it compared to Royal Oak Lump.

Cowboy lump works fine for grilling, but I didn't care for it for low and slow. It's all furniture scrap and very uniform in size. Sometimes you'll be cooking with a table leg, other times a piece of dovetailed trim.......

I used it a time or two years back. Burns real hot and fast and peters out quick...or at least the stuff I tried did.
