    The Frontier lump charcoal available at Ace works great with long burn time for low & slow true BBQ, or give it plenty of air and get great high heat for searing and grilling! I wish Ace offered the Frontier brand 100% natural charcoal briquets as well for on-line ordering with free ship to store. I don't buy conventional Kingsford, conventional Royal Oak, nor conventional Frontier brand charcoal briquets due to the mineral coal component and that material's negative effects on the flavor and quality of what I'm cooking outdoors. It's always good to check the MSDS before you buy. ;>

    I've been grilling for over 5 years using a Big Green Egg. My local store [...] stopped carrying Cowboy brand. I started buying Frontier and thought I was losing my mind. The grill just would not get up to heat the way it used to. The instant I switched to Kingsford (the only thing[...]had beside Frontier) the grill started working again!. I'm making ribs today, and withing 1 hour of lighting the fire, I'm cooking. This was never happening with Frontier brand.

          My wife calls me Grillman,
          You must have gotten the old made in Argentina stuff. It was pretty much how you described it. The new made in USA is one of the hottest burning there is and with low ash. Cowboy has low ash but that is about all that is good about it. I suggest you try it again and look for the "Made in USA" label.

          I checked 'avid griller' but I am actually a competition BBQ cook.

          Hope this helps

              I am a Big Green Egg owner and contrary to earlier comments find this product has no problem getting to high temperature. This is a good clean burning high temp charcoal with very few rocks.

                I was using another brand for years, as it was the only one I could find locally. I had to drive abt 20 miles to get it. Since I found this at my local Ace Hardware, only 2 blocks out of my way on the way home, I will be buying it. I use an average of 100-200 lbs a year....

                  This is good stuff. Grillman, if it takes an hour for you to get up to smoking temp, you must be doing something very wrong.

                          Grillman, If it takes you 1 hour to get to smoking with this lump, you must be doing a lot of stuff wrong. I really don't understand your post.

                              This is the best charcoal for the price that I have ever used. It had bigger chunks of wood and more variety of chunk sizes than the Cowboy, but I didn't find it to have a detrimental effect on my smoker temperature. Ash production was very low, very comparable to the Cowboy. This will be my new goto charcoal!

                                  Overall I'm very pleased with this charcoal. Lights easy, great campfire smell. Gets hot enough to quickly sear a couple of steaks, and lasts long enough in my smoker for a 10-12 hour cook. No complaints.
