For a long time we have NOT been a fan of charcoal briquettes. .. and then we ran into Jealous Devil. All I have to say is this product is amazing... the briquettes are MASSIVE (compared to your average) and they hold head amazingly well. They last a LONG time and burn extremely well.
Why we like them?
100% natural ingredients: pure quebracho hardwood & a pinch of vegetable starch
NO chemicals or toxic ingredients – borax, nitrates etc – 2x the size of typical briquets for maximum performance
Taste-enhancing aroma & flavor – incredibly long, hot burn
No acrid, unpleasant smoke or harsh chemical odor
Extremely low ash production
Won’t spark, pop, or snap
Waterproof, resealable packaging with side carry handle
About Jealous Devil
We like this company because it has similar values to Meat N' Bone. The folks from JD focus on sourcing the BEST type of charcoal. They use Quebracho Blanco hardwood from Paraguay which is one of the densest woods on the planet.
The charcoal is "craft made" in small batches and everything they do has been well thought out, even the packaging which is weather-resistant and re-sealable.
They harvest wood sustainably so that the rainforest is not harmed and they are reinvesting into our own production to reduce our carbon footprint and move towards FSC certification.
How to ignite Jealous Devil Briquettes
Jealous Devil recommends lighting a few starter cubes/bales (hey, junk mail works too!) under a charcoal chimney, or using an active torch such as a looflighter or MAP torch. Depending on lighting conditions, your charcoal should come to temperature and be ready for cooking within 10-20 minutes. We do not condone the use of lighter fluid. It’s cheating. And also gross.
