Recommended buying directly from Fogo. Quick delivery. Large chunks, very few small pieces.
Lights easily. Good smoke, even without wood chunks added.
Cons - Moderate level of ash remaining after burning. A fair amount of popping while lighting.
Very solid company with first rate customer service.
My goto charcoal. Great stuff
After grilling with all the different lump charcoal Fogo has to offer, I was delighted to see they came out with briquettes. These are special, coconut shell and burn very hot and cleanly. Briquettes always have more ash than lump, but it never was a significant issue. Bone in skin on chicken thighs indirectly cooked in my PK 300AF had a delicious smoky flavor with crisp skin. Temp held at 330° throughout the cook. Highly recommended and I’m buying again.
I have used a high end coco charcoal in the past and this is right with it. Long burn, low ash. Don’t hesitate to buy this one!
Great charcoal. Excellent flavor. Good sized pieces.
Used our bourbon barrel wood chunks to add a nice flavor to our thanksgiving smoked turkey. Guests commented on the taste. Big hit!
Easily the best charcoal I’ve used. The charcoal is extremely long lasting and super hot.
I love the quantity and variety of pockets. And the denim material is perfect for in front of the grill.
I can always depend on prompt delivery, quality packaging and product.
I love this product for my Kamado I have had it for 2 years but it rusted out and broke. If they do not replace it I will purchase another as it is amazing at what it is designed for.
Ever since I discovered FOGO, super lump charcoal is my goto. The lumps are super large, burns efficiently keeping the temperature constant. A must have for all skill levels
I purchased one if r
The blaze balls after watching many of the FOGO videos with Captain Ron. I was skeptical of its utility but decided to give one a shot. I must say it is quite handy and works especially well with leftover charcoal. My only complaint is the longevity. When it breaks it does so in a fashion that makes it particularly difficult to use. Mine had the whole flat circle at the top fallout and the outer rim broke in two places - all in one cook!
I ordered a replacement 2-pack, so when the next one breaks I’ll have a spare (and time to order a new spare.)
Fogo gold bag is by far the most consistent and best charcoal ever! It is by far my favorite out of all the others.
I am smoking my turkey now and the reason i buy FOGO is because the size of the charcoal is perfect for smoking!
Excellent charcoal. Nice large chunks and adds great flavor to your food . I’ve used several different brands. Fogo is the best !
These chunks are large and long burning, and there are there has been nearly no scraps in the bag. The large bag gets me through several smoking and grilling sessions.
Fogo is the best charcoal. Super satisfied with the product. Highly recommended!!
I have been using FOGO for several years and service is better than ever! Keep up the good work.
I purchased this cutting board from FOGO in March of 2022 and this is my go to board when serving proteins. The canal is awesome for catching juices and the wood is hard enough to give great feed back while slicing or cutting yet soft enough that I do not have to sharpen my knives after each use. It also makes a great serving platter.
Follow the directions for use when you first get it and now I put some wax on it roughly once a quarter and it jumps right back to a beautiful finish. Easy to clean and easy to maintain which is always a plus. It is sturdy, lays flat and does not wobble or move.
Cannot say how happy I am with this board both for both looks and functionality.
Fogo fire starters are expensive & they don’t come in uniform shape and the box is always messy with loose and fallen off pieces of tumble weeds. Because of that they don’t ignite a fire properly and have to use a handful just to get a basic fire started. Much better options on the market than this product here. #facts
My 17.6 lb bag of Super Premium from my local Ace was a vast majority of smaller pieces. Not sure what happened with the QC on this bag. This picture was taken after I used a basket full for a high temp burn off and a basket full for a brisket in my BGE. The basket mixtures were consistent with this photo.
I like the FOGO starters since they always perform the way I need them to. No matter the weather or the fuel, they never disappoint and I know I will get what I need from them. Definitely will buy again and again!
Recently purchased a Big Green Egg and we were using an electric started. We were not being successful getting our egg started. We recently purchased Fogostarters and we are now starting and getting up to temperature in less than 15 minutes. Highly recommended product.
