Big Green Egg painstakingly sources our natural charcoal to ensure that it contains no fillers, nitrates, chemicals, 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 hardwood. It is easy to light and is usually ready for cooking in a few minutes, and burns hotter and more efficiently than charcoal briquettes. Lump charcoal produces less ash, so there is minimal waste and clean up … delivering value in every bag.
Most importantly, food tastes better, without harsh chemicals or odors that can be released when cooking with briquettes or other similar products. What else would you want to cook with?
