The right smoke

Ax Breaker - in case you’re curious Quebracho translates to Ax Breaker. I’m glad someone broke a few axes on these trees - the charcoal is by far the best I’ve ever used.
You know that acrid smoke that you get from a lot of charcoals? The white smoke that, until you get the temp just right, won’t go away. And if you put the meat on, turn your back for two seconds and then look back - it’s all white again because the temp got too high too fast… This charcoal holds temps really well, so I’ve avoided that acrid smoke on every cook.
5 stars - would buy again. Worth the price.

Love it!

I used to use a propane torch for silver soldering. It was a touch hotter, but requires me to hold the torch close to the flame upside down. I like the handle and holding this torch upright. I’ve used proper torch, BGE lifter blocks, and electric heaters. This torch is the fastest way to light my fire.

This is the BEST charcoal I have used. It lights super quick burns super clean and burns super Long. It burns very hot too. Thank you fogo


This charcoal is hands down the best, it has lasted me months and has great taste and burns hot!
