I never heard of Honest Charley's until the beginning of this year when I saw their page on Facebook. Are they not as big as they used to be? I'm definitely interested in knowing more about them.

My guess is they were probably trying avoid any licensing issues by changing up the grill. So while it resembles a Cougar, its not exactly a Cougar.
