This charcoal is environmentally friendly and made from coconut shells which burn hotter and slower for better grilling. The charcoal doesn’t contain any added chemicals or by products and is 100 percent natural. . This also lets me use less charcoal when grilling The package comes with a 4 pack of convenient size bags which are great for smaller grills.

Tried out the eco-friendly COCO-BBQ, and I have mixed feelings about the results. First off, it was not as easy to light as anticipated, and a little slow to get up to an adequate cooking temperature. That said, however, once it hit a good grilling temp (the holes in the disks make it super easy to see) I had more than enough long & low heat after my inital sear of two sirloins. I do appreciate how the disks burn down completely, leaving next to no ash, and that the product comes from a renewable resource. But if COCO wants a truly eco-friendly product, they'll ditch the plastic the disks are packaged in and wrap them in a recycled paper product you can light. (hint hint) All in all, a good chemical-free grilling product.

The first thing I noticed about this coco-charcoal is the packaging. There are 4 packages of coco-charcoal per box. The instructions say it is enough for four bbq's. I guess it depends on what you are cooking if it is enough for four or not. This is an environmentally friendly product (unless you are a coconut...) that does not use wood to make the charcoal. One package was enough to grill a couple of pork chops with very little heat to spare. This charcoal burns down fast and leaves very little ash to clean up later but did a good job on the chops. I feel it is best to use for grilling and not BBQing (The difference is about 4-6 hours) but there are differences of opinion on what is bbq and what is grilling depending on where you live. All in all I liked the product and feel that with continued use I will find out more about what it is best for. The cost is higher than traditional charcoal but most environmentally friendly products cost more anyway so that does not bother me.

I've never used coconut charcoal before but it is an excellent form of charcoal that burns evenly and clean. I've used it in my smoker and it lasts a long time and puts out a generous amount of heat, so you can use less. Works great if you are smoking as well, just add your favorite wood chunks to the coals. I like the even burn and the lack of 'dust' from these coals, they are easy and convenient to handle. Perfect for a back yard bbq or campers who use a portable grill. I tried it with a spatchcocked chicken on the grill with some wood for smoking. This took awhile because you want a well done bird without causing a fire. The heat stayed even and at the right temp for 2 hours. Perfection!

Coconut charcoal is coconut based. Traditional charcoal is wood based. We use an electric heating element to start our briquettes because we don't like the taste of lighter fluid. The first thing we noticed was even though the heating element was red hot, it took longer for the coconut briquettes to catch. Once they did catch, they burned hot for a long time and did not extinguish until there was only ash residue left.. We grill exclusively with charcoal briquettes because of the smokey woodsy flavor they give to the meat. That flavor is missing using the coconut briquettes. The next time we grill out, we are going to add soaked wood chips to the coconut briquettes. We will then have the best of both worlds.

Disappointed ! This review is for the coconut charcoal briquets by COCO-BBQ. I was intrigued by the product's description "charcoals generate significant heat, longer burning time in an environmentally responsible fashion". This was not at all my experience with the product. It comes in a 9 pound box, that says "individually packaged for 4 barbecues", and that 1 pound of this product is equivalent to 2 pounds of standard charcoal briquets. These briquets lit quickly and easily and had a pleasant aroma. The problem I experienced with these is that they never got anywhere near hot enough to cook with (see photo after 15+ minutes of having been lit) and certainly did not have a long burning time. They are also quite expensive to purchase compared to the bags of standard charcoal briquettes that I buy at my favorite big box store, even considering they say you only use half of the quantity of this product.

Wow what a neat product! These things burn hot and slow, and are perfect for outdoor grilling! I needed to cook 3 racks of ribs, so I put 8 pieces in the chimney to start, and added the rest to the charcoal basket. Once they were started, I dumped them into the basket with the unlit briquettes, out the ribs on, added some wood chips, and cover the grill with the lid. I opened it u a few times to add wood chips, and the ribs cooked perfectly in about 3 hours. The charcoal was still burning after 3 hours, wow! Great product!

No, this does not smell like, nor impart any flavor, of coconut. It's just wood from the coconut tree. It's a hardwood, so burns hot and slow, and there are no chemicals infused, so no chemical taste. It is also expensive. Cost per grilling is about $4.75, compared with oak lump charcoal at about $1.00 per grilling. The coconut briquettes come in a box with four plastic pouches containing the charcoal. Each pouch is advertised as good for one grilling session. So, there are four grilling sessions per box. I used these in my smoker/grill; they started quickly, reaching a high temp within five minutes. After grilling and shutting down the smoker, the briquettes were still holding together, possibly good for yet another grilling. If that holds to be true, I can get twice the grilling time from each pouch, making the cost per grilling less, but still expensive. So, excellent quality, expensive, better for the environment (?). I'll stick with the oak charcoal that I've been using.

Runs long and doesn't mind the heat. I use a couple of grills/items that use charcoal. This coconut charcoal with its long lasting higher heat qualities, I figured would be great for my pizza oven. I like to use a few chunks of charcoal to keep the oven hot and make it easy to jump to 900F by throwing in some pellets. My experience thus far has been very positive. When using other charcoals, they are spent after 30 minutes at 800-950F. This coconut charcoal is barely used after 30 minutes and still putting out heat. I've not had a chance to run in my weber smokey mountain, where I also use coal. But that burns so efficiently I probably would not bother.

This coconut charcoal is a real bit of a puzzle to give a review on. There are many things I like about this product that is better than your regular briquets. They don't smell as bad on start up and really are odorless when fully lit. There is almost hardly any ash. It is really a little freaky. I am not really sure it burns that much hotter than regular coal, but it might, as I had a really tough time trying to get the temp to drop while doing a low and slow cook. The only real problem with this product is that is cost 2x as much as Brand K and four times as much as generic store briquettes. I really can't see that it works that much better.
