Cowboy, Royal Oak or Kingsford Charwood?

I'm back in the states for a short while and need advise on lump. I already checked nakedwhiz.com . I'd like to hear from you.

I'm leaning towards Kingsford Charwood. But need to check which Royal Oak wallyworld is selling.

I've only used Nature Glo (which the Whiz says is Royal Oak in a different bag), but I have tried both the Made in USA lump, and the Made in Paraguay, and found little, if any, difference. So if you're referring to the origin of the Royal Oak, I don't think you will go wrong with either of them.

I'm trying a bag of Kingsfor Charwood this weekend on a couple of butts and a brisket. I'm starting them in about an hour. Tomorrow evening I'll let you know how it did. As far as Cowboy goes, it's end cuts from hardwood flooring and molding so it basicly cooks ok, but seems a bit too ashy.

And I will include pics too.
