Great Chips, adds flavor and smoke to your cook. Loved the smell when bag was opened, wow! Gotta try them.
Great stuff. Burns slow and gives everything I cook so takes less charcoal to do the job than other brands I have tried. Therefore, great value when comparing cost with other brands.
Hands down this is my favorite charcoal. I’ve been ordering bag after bag of the Premium Fogo. I’m waiting for these guys to hook me up with a 10x10 Fogo tent so I can really represent!!
Will not use anything else! HUGE lumps get hot quick and stay hot!
Quick and easy way to get my XL BGE going!
Must have for any BGE owner! So nice to not haft to rely on being close to power using the looft lighter. Any lites much quicker!

I didn't realize how much I needed this grate until I used it for the first time. The ability to spin from indirect to direct heat and visa versa is an unexpected game changer. Combined with the SNS Slow-N-Sear accessory, it has stepped up my grilling game to the next level.
Might not have used enough, as the black color is a bit intimidating. Felt lacking in both salt, as well as other flavors. Will definitely try again, but will likely buy the "other black rub" next time.
The standard size with short spike fits my egg, but the long spike is a bit too long. Probably would work well in an XL.
There was some confusion about the grate, looks like there is another product listed that covers it.
So far, gyros and tacos al pastor have turned out beautifully. I recommend a remote thermometer to keep tabs on the cook, it seems to take a bit longer than I would anticipate.
Really am happy with the easy spin grill and it works great with the slow n sear deluxe set. Thanks Fogo 😀!
Love the rub…very tasteful
very little ash, quick to reach desired temp
I have been cooking with Royal Oak on my Big Green Egg for years. I tried FOGO after seeing it on a couple YouTube videos. My wife and kids love the flavor of FOGO! Some reviewers claim it imparts no flavor. I don’t find that to be true. It has a neutral, more natural flavor. It’s not overpowering, which gives you more ability to add a specific smoking wood flavor or none at all depending on your preference. Bag was packed as well, not a lot of empty space. I have been informed that we are a FOGO family now!
I have tried a few different lump charcoals but once i tried Fogo there was no turning back. The neutral flavor is awesome and any type of wood you add just puts it over the top!!!
Seriously amazing stuff! First of all, I could smell the bag all day. Secondly, the flavor it gives to pork and brisket is nuts - subtle but certainly enough to know it's there without over powering the meat. If I run out and cook without it, all 4 of my kids, from age 13 - 4 notice the difference. Would highly recommend.
Simply put - Fogo FOGO Super Premium Lump Charcoal is the $hit! It is by far the best lump charcoal out there. I have a Green Egg and have tried out Green Egg's own charcoal and it doesn't compare to Fogo's. I still separate each bag into Medium and Large bins out of habit (because I always found myself going through the other brands' "lump" charcoal to separate the "okay chunks" from the "clog-up-your-air-holes-little-pieces-of-rabbit-dropping chunks") but with Fogo, you seriously don't have to go through the trouble because over 2/3 of the bag is always big chunks and the other 1/3 is the less big stuff one can still safely and confidentially use.
These chunks give each cook that extra punch of flavor. Incredible results paired with FOGO lump charcoal. Your food will not taste like bourbon, that's not the intent. These chunks simply provide a wonderful supplement to the "exotic seasoning" of smoke!!
Bought a four pack. Gave 2 to my brothers at Christmas and they said it was the best. Gave 2 more with this order, spread the love. Really good stuff.

I have had my BGE for about ten years now and just learned the best way to light it, I have used many different things from electrical to fluids and waited, hopefully it works, but now, I just light it and less than ten minutes it’s up to temperature.
Works great with Tumbleweeds. Never have to worry about snuffing out the fire starter; just light and load on the charcoal.
So far so good. Easiest charcoal lighter ever.
Great taste and easy to use!
