Thumbs Up For These Starters

I just recently tried a pack of these and I’m hooked on them now. Easy to light and the pack size is about right for the use you have in a 35 lb bag of lump.

A replacement

The most recent bag was a replacement for one I received damaged. No hassles, no crap. Sent a couple of pictures and a replacement bag was shipped out.
Great product, great service. Must be the reason I only use FOGO

Nothing but the best

Have order several times in the past and will continue to. Also burns clean, hot, and nice size lumps.

Bold Brazilian Flavor

I used this to smoke an untrimmed Tri-tip seasoned only with Kosher salt. The flavor complexity and intensity from the Eucalyptus Charcoal was amazing. Definitely worth trying out.

Easy

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.

Great lid

Love this hat. Soft, lays flat on my head and people say “what’s FOGO”?!

So far, OK...

Charcoal seems fine - took longer to get hot than my previously used brand, and burned for about the same time. Shipping was my only issue - took 14 days to receive, and was only shipped after I had sent an email asking about it...

Great Charcoal

I only buy FOGO

Best Ever

I’ve tried them all and this is the best there is!

Best lump coal

Since trying several years ago, never use anything else in my BGE!

Fogo is my Go to

Only charcoal I use

By far the best charcoal on the market

FOGO Premium Lump Charcoal (17.6lbs)

An excellent way to start Fogo

I have multiple ways to ignite my Fogo, everything from the blow torch to these starters. If I want to get the grill going and prep for cooking, these are hands down my go to. Using paper is a mess, especially if it’s windy, that ash blows everywhere. The Fogo starters are clean and two do the job every time. My only want from Fogo with these is: how about packing an even sixteen vs odd fifteen?!

Super premium

Love big chunks and I cannot lie.

Great coal

Fogo premium is great stuff. It’s dependable, lights easily and burns clean, we’ll keep buying more.

Incredibly charcoal

I've now used Fogo Super Premium on two occasions...and it's wonderful. My Boston butt long cooks were perfect and more consistent than in the past when I used other brands. Perfect charcoal!

BEST CHARCOAL EVER!

We are enjoying the grill have smoked 6 Pork butt this month and smoking 2 more tomorrow !

Only charcoal I buy now

Love using the FOGO Premium lump charcoal in my Primo ceramic smoker. It adds enough flavor to whatever I'm cooking. It's great for low and slow or hot and fast!!! Won't go with anything else!! Thank you FOGO for a great product!

Works great

The torch does a great job starting my charcoal in my kamados. It has shortened how long the time is from when I light the coal to when I am cooking.
