What is the Difference Between Briquette Charcoal and Natural Lump Charcoal?

Pure, all-natural lump charcoal lights quickly and heats the Big Green Egg to cooking temperature in minutes.

Lump charcoal produces less ash than chemical-laden briquets, so there is minimal cleanup. Plus, you can use any charcoal that remains in the grill after a cook for your next cook. This means you get more performance and value in every bag!

charcoalIs Lump Charcoal Better Than Regular Briquette Charcoal?

Big Green Egg has long been committed to eco-friendly and natural products.

Their lump charcoal is a renewable fuel. The best news is they do not cut forests to produce this all-natural product. This is quite unlike briquettes. Big Green Egg carefully sources their wood to ensure 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.

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?
