  • 2 Lobster tails
  • 1 lemon
  • 1 stick butter, unsalted & room temperature
  • 1 small bunch parsley
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • Lawry's seasoned salt


  • 1 Filet Mignon
  • Kosher salt
  • Black pepper
  • 2 slices bacon
  • 2 toothpicks


Fire up your grill to 450 degrees with Fogo Charcoal. Prepare the butter mixture by mincing garlic. When chopping the garlic, add some salt to the garlic and use the side of your knife to mash the garlic to create a spread. The grain of the salt helps break down the garlic.

chopping the garlic

Finely chop about ¼ cup parsley. Mix the garlic and the parsley with the room temperature butter. Use your hands to make it easier to mix and form into a log so you can cut slices. Wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate (or freeze for a short amount of time) to make slicing easier.

mixing the chopped garlic, parsley and the butter

Prepare the lobster tails by cutting the top of the tail shell with a pair of scissors. Carefully crack the shell so you can remove the meat. Try to keep the shell intact so you can add the meat back into the shell to cook on the grill.

Cut off the little legs on the bottom side of the tail because they will burn. Rinse out the shell and put the meat back into the shell.

Add a few slices of the garlic parsley butter into the lobster tail and sprinkle on some Lawry’s seasoned salt and drizzle with lemon juice.

Prepare the steak by sprinkling with kosher salt and black pepper.

preparing the steak with salt and pepper

Wrap the sides with bacon and use a toothpick to keep the bacon on.

Add the steak and lobster to the 450 degree grill over direct heat. Keep the lobsters on the edges so they cook a little slower. A good tip is to tent the lobster with foil so it steams a little and does not dry out. 

grilling the lobster and the filet mignon

Cook the lobster until the internal temperature is 140 degrees and the outside of the lobster will turn red. It will take about 10-15 minutes.

The steak will be finished when the internal temperature is 130 degrees for medium rare.

Use a slice of the garlic butter and add to the top of the steak towards the end of the cook.

Easy to use. Just one gets the fire going.

As good as lump charcoal gets

I have used many brands of lump charcoal and I keep coming back to Fogo. It has a great flavor and long burn times when smoking.

Consistent Quality

I have tried practically every lump charcoal. I am partial to larger pieces as they last longer and maintain heat better. Fogo consistently delivers the best charcoal with the least amount of wasted smaller pieces and dust.
While Fogo is more expensive than most competitors it simply lasts longer. I find that I can reuse it more often than other brands’ charcoal. So over the course of using the entire bag my average cost per use is less than other charcoal.
Lastly, I like the quality of their bag and most importantly the quality of the burn. There is no chemical smells or flavors imparted in the meat.
Keep it up, FOGO! I love your product and will continue my loyalty as long as you continue to deliver superior charcoal. Now, off to smell some smoke and drink a nice bourbon (neat)!

Great stuff!

Tried this for the first time recently and was pleasantly surprised. Like the ad says, lights fast and burns hot. It does impart a nice smokey flavor. It can also be for low and slow cooks. Will definitely buy again. Used in kamado and kettle grills.

Love this stuff!

Works great for all kinds of cooks. Consistently sized chunks. This is some of my favorite charcoal and I make sure that I always have some on hand. I recommend it to everyone that comes over or tries the food! We use it in our kamado and two kettle grills.
