"Cowboy cool” can mean beer that’s been left in the back of a pickup in West Texas. That’s not cold, but for a cowboy in West Texas, it’s the best that can be done.
“Cowboy cool” more often means a person who looks or acts like a cowboy—and that’s “cool.”
The temperature of a beer that has been rolling around in the floorboard of a pickup truck.
“You can’t drink that Budweiser! It’s been out in the sun all day!”

“Chambre”, room temperature, referring to beer. It’s called “cowboy cool” even if the “room” is the trunk of a car on a hot summer day. “I don’t have any cold beers, but you’re welcome to one of these if you don’t mind it being cowboy cool.”

My ex-husband went to high school in College Station and he uses the phrase “cowboy cool” to refer to a particular form of dress: cowboy boots, blue jeans, white shirt and jacket. With or without tie.
