LotusGrill Charcoal is made with 100 percent natural Beechwood. Beechwood is used due to its very low moisture content which helps to eliminate smoke. It also has a very high BTU value which results in a very hot fire that will stay that way for a longer period of grill time.Read more
The LotusGrill uses a fraction of the charcoal that a standard barbecue uses(about 20% of a regular charcoal Grill). A 2.2 lb bag of charcoal is enough for 6 grilling sessions on our Trailbreaker GT model. We feel so strongly that the LotusGrill Charcoal will enhance your grilling experience that we include a bag with every grill purchase. Please note that we never recommend using charcoal briquettes in the LotusGrill (or in general). While briquettes will work in the grill they do contain a lot of moisture, which creates smoke, and they are loaded with chemicals, which are carried by the smoke into your food. Briquettes do not burn as hot or as long as a natural charcoal (like LotusGrill Charcoal) which will be detrimental to your overall grilling experience.
