The amazing wood-fire flavour you get when grilling on a Kamado Joe grill comes from the lump charcoal that ceramic grills are designed to use. Lump charcoal, unlike charcoal briquettes, is made from pieces of real wood, so it imparts a wonderful wood-fire flavour to your grilled food, a flavour you just won’t get from a gas grill!
Kamado Joe lump charcoal
Kamado Joe lump charcoal is made from real trees – select hardwoods that provide robust flavor and high heat output. Size distribution is important; we mix the right selection of fast-starting small pieces and long, burning large pieces.
Other Lump Charcoal
Many other brands of lump charcoal are made from scrap furniture or pressed wood. This means less wood flavour and smaller pieces that burn out quickly.
Restaurant Grade Charcoal
If Kamado Joe charcoal is not available ‘Restuarant Grade’ charcoal will make a worthy substitute. In the UK , a good brand that is readily available is Big K.
Charcoal briquettes are made from sawdust held together with chemical or vegetable binding agents. They impart an unpleasant flavour and won’t relight.
