4 reviews

Big Green Egg aficionados know that a cook is only as good as the fire that fuels it. Our Ultimate Fuel Pack allows you to experiment — mixing and matching different charcoals and woodchips to achieve a variety of flavours.

Try Oak & Hickory charcoal for classic barbecue notes, the 100% Natural Canadian Maple Lumpwood Charcoal for a subtly sweet smoke and the 100% Natural Eucalyptus Lumpwood Charcoal with a neutral smokiness that lets the flavours of your ingredients sing. Then add in some flavoured Woodchips and Woodchunks to add intensity to short and long cooks, respectively.

Comes with a pack of Premium Natural Firestarters to get you going.

Code: F-GD

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. It takes just 10 minutes to light with one of our firelighters.

Nothing toxic.

Unlike some charcoal, ours is totally free from toxins, accelerants and harmful chemicals. We don't want that stuff tainting our food!

100% flavour.

Hickory and oak combine to give our charcoal the deepest and most characterful flavour.

This part's easy, and you'll have the hang of it in no time.

  1. Fill the Firebox with Charcoal to just above the rim. Don’t be afraid of overloading your EGG – any unburned charcoal can be left and used next time. It's better to overload than underload!
  2. Light your EGG using a Big Green Egg Natural Fire Starter. Ruffle the edges a little to make lighting easier.
  3. Place a few pieces of charcoal over the Fire Starters to create a teepee shape. This will help the charcoal to get going faster.
  4. Open the Draft Door fully and leave your Big Green Egg open for 10 minutes.
  5. After 10 minutes, you’ll notice the charcoal in the middle of your EGG is glowing.
  6. Now open your rEGGulator fully.
  7. Leave your EGG to heat for a further 2-5 minutes.
  8. Once the ceramics have warmed up, add your cooking surfaces. Wait a further 5-10 minutes, or until your EGG has reached your cooking temperature.

Keep it somewhere dry, ideally in a garage or shed, stored in an airtight bin or our Shop now. When you first open a bag, the lumps are extremely dry and will light very quickly. If allowed to absorb a lot of moisture, they’ll be slower to light. To prevent this, fold over the opened top of the bag several times. If you’ve got a few remnants left in an older bag, light your EGG with a fresh new bag then add the older coals once the fire is going.

Our lumpwood charcoal is made from pure, sustainably sourced hardwood, with no nasty chemical accelerants. This means it lights quickly and burns cleanly – good for cooking and good for your health. It is also remarkably economical, with the coals often reusable across multiple cooks. And charcoal isn’t just a fuel, it’s an ingredient in its own right. Each of our three different options lends its own unique flavour profile to your food.
