Grilled Whole Red Snapper

Grilled Snapper

Who doesn’t love fresh fish on a summer day? Although grilling fish might sound tricky, it's quite quick and easy to do, but most importantly you know the fish will be full of flavor! In this recipe we add a variety of herbs and lemon so when the fish is grilled all the ingredients combine perfectly together. Make sure to use oil or a fish basket to prevent the skin from sticking and give you a crispier result.

Medium Rare Porterhouse Steak with Bacon Wrapped Carrots


Porterhouse steak is one of the thickest and biggest cuts of beef you can get out there, and great for dinner on a summer night. This recipe is very simple, but amazing in flavor. You just have to make sure that you visit your trusty butcher or your favorite local grocery store to get a good quality porterhouse steak. By reverse searing the steak, you get both of both worlds, the perfect medium rare and the perfect crust. Make sure to try the bacon wrapped carrots on the side, they are deliciously crispy and sweet!

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.
