I started using Olive Briq in my Big Green Egg last summer and immediately fell in love with the product.   Imagine a charcoal that imparts great flavor, burns longer, cleaner, hotter (or slower) and comes from a sustainable source!


I particularly like to cook meats “low & slow” and Olive Briq makes that easy, just set things up before turning in for the night and you wake up to perfect Pulled Pork or Beef Brisket every time.

I've used Olive Briq, and they are wonderful. First cook was a high heat steak sear, the briquettes temperature clocked in at 953 degrees Fahrenheit

 ( 512 C )

Last night I did a meatloaf, the temp was stable for the whole duration, about 2 hours. An hour in, I put a surface thermometer on the cooking grate over the coals, 560 degrees Fahrenheit ( 293 C ) 


Truly impressive ! Keep producing your excellent product.
