Tried a few different brands of charcoal for my Kamado Joe before landing on FOGO. Love that the Premium comes in 35 lb bags now! Keep up the great work FOGO!
I've heard so many good things about FOGO. I was so excited when I ordered my first bag. Unfortunately, when I opened my bag of premium, it wasn't what I expected. My bag was full of lots of little pieces. I almost felt like all I got was scrap. I've already reached out to FOGO, and I'm waiting for a response. I'm hoping this can be resolved.
Nice lasting , good flavor
Long time customer and it is nice to order 2 big bags at a time instead of 3-4 smaller one
I'm a big fan of Fogo. I like the size distribution the best.
I love FOGO. Super product with consistent sized pieces, and great customer service. Can’t say enough good.
Great delivery service. 2 days. Bag is full of the good big chunks as usual. Great stuff.

Fogo is easy to light, burns slowly and hot. I really like the large pieces that constitute the vast majority of the bag. Since I found Fogo, I have really upped my game on the BGE!
I enjoy using FOGO charcoal in my Kamado Joe Classic.
The last few bags I have received have had small lump. This bag is better but the jury is still out on paying $50 for bag of small to medium lump.
Only concern is the amount of sparking when lighting.
This is my go to charcoal for my kamado joe - burns super clean and gets to the temps I need for that steakhouse sear. Wouldn't use anything else!
Love this charcoal for super hot searing or low and slow for long cooks. It's my go to!
Yes - the initial price was very hard to stomach, but I have yet to find anything that rivals the quality and the consistency of this charcoal. Every other "jumbo" or mega lump that I've gotten has some big pieces on top, then shale and little nuggets for the rest of the bag. The burn is clean and consistent, and so far I've only spotted a couple small pieces that were not fully combusted upon opening the bag. Would be hard to switch to any other charcoal knowing the quality I may get, versus this where I know what's coming.
This charcoal is a perfect choice for a low and slow cooks, I like using it on my large BGE for anything: brisket, pork butts, smoking poultry etc!
I was amazed at the amount charcoal left after doing long cooks.
Charcoal works well. Sparks more than expected when starting. Burlap Santa bag was quite clever.. Company provided excellent customer service.
Cooked steaks, pork roast and smoked a turkey.....all done without adding more than 4 or 5 additional pieces of charcoal.
I love this stuff and will only use this from now on
Love the Rambler but FedEx could have done a better job. It took the scenic route but finally made it!
First order arrived OK, and I like the charcoal, although it is a little harder to get going than my previous charcoal.
Next order must have been mishandled, even though the box was marked "Fragile". The end of the sack was ground up fine pieces that would not light. I wound up throwing away the sack, after it got to that. The shipper (Fedex?) is not treating FOGO charcoal (35 lb bag) as "fragile".
Super Premium is amazingly consistent and the lump burns clean and hot. Nothing compares to the size. I’ve opened the bag to amazement at the quality and scale of pieces. And the burn time is exceptional. 9 hour cooks and barely any coal is used. Very efficient and I trust the performance. I won’t cook a brisket or other long cook without Super Premium.
