I have always used the brand sold by my grill company. However, now that I've used FOGO I won't be using anything else. I can get at least double the life out of a fully loaded lump basket than I did with my old brand
It last long, sears well, and works exactly as advertised!
Packaging was sound, arrived with no tears in the bag. Shipped in a cardboard box. This must of protected the lump, as the bag I opened has mostly good sized pieces. I've burned it a couple times. Lights easily and gets hot quickly. On a long cook, it held the temperature steady.
I have been buying the Fogo black bag for a couple of years now. The lump is pretty consistent in size. Not to large that it needs to be broken. It about the size of a fist. The lump has very little to no sparking with a clean long burn. I order direct from fogo and the delivery time is pretty fast as well. It is definitely one of my go to lump charcoals.
Quebracho Delivers! Excellent to start, better to cook on. Hot, Even and plenty of staying power for the next day!
