Enjoy a guilt free, high quality outdoor experience by using Coshell coconut briquettes for your BBQ cooking. Coshell coconut briquettes are made from 100-Percent recycled coconut shells which makes the briquettes burn hotter, longer and cleaner than standard briquettes. Coshell's manufacturing process uses no petroleum or harmful ingrediants that could be passed along to your food, making it better for your family and flavor. Coshell briquettes use a material that traditionally goes in to a landfill. It has the added benefit of burning cleaner so fewer greenhouse gases are emitted and no trees are cut down to produce the raw material.

This is not anything like the traditional charcoal I grew up using and I researched the heck out of it when I bought a smoker 2 years ago. The easiest way to light this coal is to use a heat gun; I use a Wagoner. For a long cook on a beef brisket I get at least 90 minutes per pound of charcoal. The heat gun adds no odor or chemicals so the briqs barely smoke and have a wonderfully sweet smell that adds to whatever wood I choose to smoke with.
I make a deep pile of and light the coals until they fire brightly. For a short hot cook in a griiing situation I would light at least 6 sections of the pile of briqs to get the heat up quickly. For a long cook on the smoker I light 3 sections of the pile and the smoker takes about 5-10 minutes (weather factors) to hit 275°F.
Its a labor of love and I hope this helps some people.
My biggest complaint about these briquettes is that they crumble to dust in the bag very easily. I've bought three bags now, and the bottom third of each one was entirely filled with charcoal dust. Besides being messy, this is extremely wasteful. I'm all for renewable sources, but they need to work as expected. Otherwise, it's a bit much to expect people to switch to them, much less pay a premium to do so. If natural hardwood briquettes can be bound together effectively then surely these can, as well.
had to give it one star to get posted but wish i could give it a negative review.
will return unopened bags asap.
I have mixed feelings about the neutral flavor. On one hand, I guess the control is nice; on the other, the smoky taste is what charcoal barbecue is all about, so if you use this more expensive charcoal, you will also want to buy natural hardwood to toss on top. I prefer wood chunks and do not bother soaking them. If you go with wood chips, they probably burn too fast to be worthwhile if you don't soak them first. Either way, you are still using some natural wood; maybe less than if you were using wood charcoal, but that cuts down on the environmental effects.
So...as a lump charcoal person, here is my pros and cons list:
- good for the environment
- more control over flavor
- less smoke
- takes longer to light
- less flavor
So...as you can tell, I am on the fence with this. It cooks fine once you learn to give it enough time, but compared to hardwood lump charcoal, I am not sure.
