About this item

Highlights

  • Made 100% chemical-free with premium Acacia wood
  • FSC® Certified Sustainably Harvested lump charcoal
  • All-natural
  • You need less; burns hotter, cleaner, and more evenly
  • Good for the community, The Good Charcoal provides free BBQ meals around the country for Americans experiencing food insecurity

Description

Our 3 Pillars: Good Charcoal, Good for the Environment, Good for the Community.

Good Charcoal: our charcoal comes from the Namibian Acacia bush in Africa, one of the hottest places on Earth. Acacia wood is denser wood than oak and hickory. It burns hotter, cleaner, and more evenly. Therefore, you do not need to use as much charcoal for your barbecue. It is all-natural and made 100% chemical free.

Good for the environment: In Namibia, the overgrowth of the Acacia bushes lead to "bush encroachment" which threatens open grasslands needed for people and wildlife alike. In fact, bush encroachment is also endangering cheetahs in Namibia that need these grasslands to hunt. We are providing charcoal that is FSC® Certified Sustainably Harvested and beneficial for the environment.

Good for the community: The Good Charcoal Company is partnering with local communities across the US to support and sponsor FREE weekly BBQs to help Americans experiencing food insecurity. We have a goal of providing over 1 million meals for Americans in need.

Prop 65 Warning: This product can expose you to certain chemicals, including soot and carbon monoxide, which are known to the State of California to cause cancer, birth defects or other reproductive harm. For additional information go to www.P65Warnings.ca.gov

I've tried a lot of charcoal, this one is my favorite. Super long burn times and easy to light. About half the time to fully light than other charcoal

AMAZING charcoal & INCREDIBLE flavor! Burns super hot so using less is great on your wallet 👍🏻 Love that it’s made from acacia bushes & supporting wildlife & love the clean ingredients. This company also gives back to communities so much! 10/10!!!

To small for most, but excellent flavor

3 out of 5 stars
AdmiralP - 10 months ago
Sadly, as another reviewer already stated, these are really small. They will not work well with a traditional kettle grill. We had to sacrifice an old wire pizza rack to use them. However, the flavor they produced was really good. It has that intense smokiness you always look for in your burger. They also lasted forever. I see a lot of potential in these, but their size excludes them from use by most charcoal grillers on the market.

TINY pieces...too small to use

The pieces are about the size of the end of a fork. No way to use this stuff without it falling through thr coal grates. I bought two bags and they are both this way.

Why is it not staying lit or hot?

3 out of 5 stars
MissGlamper - 1 year ago, Verified purchaser
Maybe I got a bad bag but my son & I have had trouble keeping it lit & burning. Even after lighter fluid & stoking it in the chimney for 20 minutes. It just doesn’t want to stay lit or hot. I really was hoping it was as good as the reviews.

First time trying this brand and I love it! The food tastes great, it doesn’t have that weird chemical after taste. It didn’t take forever to light, and it lasts a while. Not only is it cheaper than other brands, but I didn’t have to use as much charcoal like I normally would.

Burns super clean

Jay - 1 year ago, Verified purchaser
This stuff burns so clean I love it. I did some pork belly with it and it came out perfect. Often other lump charcoal has a fair amount of dirty smoke you have to deal with. Not this stuff it burns really clean and was a dream to use.

I've had other bags of charcoal that have an "off" chemical taste. This charcoal has a clean natural taste and lights easily.

It burns really hot so be careful! It does spark a little so make sure you have it far away from anything flammable.
