I have been using FOGO lump charcoal for the past two years and in my opinion it’s the best. I have used other brands before FOGO and by far it’s the best.
I had a friend send me a picture of the big pieces of lump charcoal he had just bought at a good deal. He had never used Fogo. So I sent him a picture of some standard and large pieces out of a bag of Fogo I had. They were 2 - 4 times larger than the brand he had purchased. His response was just WOW! Needless to say I'm still buying Fogo.
I use my Kamado Joe weekly if not 3-4 times a week. I have experimented with a number of different charcoals and the Fogo Super Premium is the BEST - hands down not even close game over!!!
Perfect size chunks for smoking. Can't wait for my Fogo Rub!!
The charcoal chunks are huge and once its starts it does seem to burn for a while . However, it take much much too long to start....I tried 30 minutes and finally went to an hour in advance of my cook start . Over an hour to get the fire going well wasn't expected and nor is it acceptable.
Sorry only rate it 2 stars
