Whether you're a seasoned barbecue enthusiast or a professional pitmaster, Fogo Charcoal is your ultimate grilling companion. Our lump charcoal ensures consistent heat, allowing you to achieve perfect sears on steaks, grill juicy burgers, or slow-smoke tender ribs with ease.
But wait, let's compare lump charcoal to briquettes:
Lump charcoal and briquettes are two distinct types of charcoal used for grilling and smoking. While briquettes have their merits, we firmly believe that lump charcoal offers a superior grilling experience. Here's why:
- Purity: Fogo's lump charcoal is made from pure hardwood without any binders or additives. This means it's a more natural and clean-burning option, elevating the flavors of your food.
- Flavor: The natural wood used in our lump charcoal imparts an authentic smoky flavor that simply can't be beaten. Your grilled dishes will be bursting with deliciousness.
- Higher Temperatures: Fogo's lump charcoal burns hotter than briquettes, making it perfect for achieving those mouthwatering, restaurant-quality crusts on your meats.
- Less Ash Production: Say goodbye to excessive ash! Our lump charcoal produces less ash compared to briquettes, minimizing cleanup and allowing you to focus on what matters most – enjoying your grilled creations.
- Faster Lighting: With Fogo Charcoal, there's no need to wait around. It lights up quickly, saving you time and getting you grilling without delay.
- Adjustable Heat: Easily control the heat levels by spreading or stacking the lump charcoal. This versatility gives you full command over your cooking, ensuring perfectly cooked meals every time.
- Eco-friendliness: Fogo's lump charcoal is not only great for your food but also for the environment. Made from natural hardwood without additives, it's a more eco-friendly choice compared to briquettes.
Now, let's explore our incredible Fogo Charcoal lineup, designed to meet your specific grilling needs:

Now, let's discover three super cool methods to light your charcoal without using lighter fluid:
- The Simple Way - Pyramid Power! Stack your charcoal into a cute little pyramid, then grab a paper towel. Lightly drizzle it with oil and tuck it under the pyramid. Spark it up, and witness the magic as your pyramid ignites into a blazing fire!
- Using a Starter – Level Up! We've got two brilliant gadgets for you: the Chimney Starter and the Blazaball. With the Chimney Starter, simply fill the top with charcoal and use paper or all-natural starters underneath for ignition. Within minutes, you'll have glowing coals ready for grilling. The Blazaball is your handy cage that shields your all-natural starters. Place it on the grill, shower it with charcoal, and voila! Your coals are ready to rock and roll.
- The Grand Finale – The Flamethrower (Caution: Awesome but Wild!) For the thrill-seekers, unleash the fire with a propane torch like the JJGeorge Torch. But remember, handle this power responsibly—it's a blast but can be dangerous.
And that's it! You're now the grill hero of the day, armed with three exciting ways to light your charcoal without any lighter fluid in sight. Happy grilling!
