In fact, according to the GGOS (Great God of Smoke), it would be sacrilegious to do so. It’s kind of like the 11th commandment, eh. Big Green Egg Charcoal contains only 100% organic American oak and hickory “ultra premium” hardwood.
Eggers will tell you that you can literally see — and taste — the difference immediately. So how could you cook with anything else? (And no, we do not sell Brand X. Nor do we know where you can buy some. And sorry, but we’re not sorry.)
