Our Natural Lump Charcoal is produced from top-quality cuts of American oak and hickory hardwoods - for premium performance and incomparable flavour. Comes as a 8kg bag.
LIGHTS FAST. COOKS FOR AGES.
Because our lumpwood charcoal is made from 100% hickory and oak, one batch can last up to 24 hours. That's fuel economy. Takes just 10 minutes to light with one of our firelighters.
Unlike some charcoal, ours is totally free from toxins, accelerants and harmful chemicals. We don't want that stuff tainting our food!
Hickory and oak combine to give our charcoal the deepest and most characterful flavour.
IN THE BOX
8kg Premium 100% Natural Lump Oak & Hickory Charcoal
DEEP, DISTINCTIVE FLAVOUR
Our Oak & Hickory Lump Charcoal adds something special to even the most unlikley dishes. Cakes and breads adopt a delicious smoky depth; meat and seafood take on a complex, aromatic flavour profile. When our charcoal is in play, anything and everything tastes better.
HOW DO I STORE MY CHARCOAL
Keep your lump charcoal somewhere dry, ideally in the garage in an airtight bin. The lumps are extremely dry and light quickly. However, if they become saturated with moisture you may find they're slower to light.
Fold the opened top of the bag over several times. If you have the remnants of an older bag that's several months old, it may be best to use a fresh new bag and add the older charcoal once the fire is going.
WHY BIG GREEN EGG CHARCOAL
For some, charcoal is just a means to an end. A fuel. And that's where it stops.
At Big Green Egg, we take great pride in our charcoal — the way it's manufactured, the way we source it, how easy it is to light, how long it burns for, how good it makes your food taste. The end result is so much more than "a way to get your fire going". That's why we call it our secret ingredient.
All our charcoal is made from natural, organic lumpwood (hickory and oak) and sourced from FSC-certified forests that we've worked with for years.
There are no accelerants in our charcoal. It lights easy, and stays lit for ages when it's in an EGG. On a Large EGG, for example, one load of charcoal lasts around 24 hours. That's good fuel economy. And because it's made of only the best lumpwood, it's more than edible; the food you'll make using it will be out of this world.
