Big Green Egg painstakingly sources our natural charcoal to ensure that it contains no fillers, nitrates, chemicals, anthracite coal, limestone, treated wood or petroleum products. Unlike briquettes, pure and natural Big Green Egg charcoal is premium carbonized wood with NO additives whatsoever.
Why natural charcoal? What’s the difference?
Big Green Egg Oak & Hickory Charcoal is made in the USA from 100% natural “ultra premium” hardwood … you will see – and taste – the difference immediately. What else would you want to cook with? Big Green Egg 100% Natural Oak & Hickory Lump Charcoal is easy to light and is usually ready to cook in about 10 minutes. Plus, it burns hotter and more efficiently, with more BTUs, than charcoal briquettes. Our premium lump charcoal also produces less ash so there is minimal waste and clean up … delivering more value and performance in every bag. But, most importantly, food tastes better, without harsh chemicals or odors that can be released when cooking with briquettes or other similar products. In fact, we recommend against ever using briquettes, lighter fluids or any quick-light charcoal product in a Big Green Egg.
Manufactured in the USA from premium, select hardwoods
