ingredients, recipe, spices, FOGO Charcoal

Prepare grill for indirect heat at 300 degrees.

Move the chicken around to cook evenly. Since these are thighs (dark meat), grill to 165-170 degrees. Place the chicken directly over coals for last few minutes to get some grill marks and char if you think they need it.

Awesome charcoal for the Weber kettle

Always a great product

Great product at a great price. The Santa coal bag was a super nice touch! Great gift idea.

Again, Best in Show

Second review of the Super Premium. I cannot emphasize enough how much this stands above the competition. I like and respect other premium brands like Jealous Devil but there is nothing out there like this product. I’ve converted 3 die-hard Big Green Egg charcoal buyers to this product and they agree it is better than anything they have ever used. NEVER buy a big box brand like Cowboy again...this is the best ever. Big chunks (that you sometimes have to break down to manageable size on your own!) and great natural, all-purpose smoky flavor.

Excellent charcoal

The medium size bricks are the best for most standard use. They heat up fast and also last long enough for a slow smoke.
