Our mission is simple, “To make the best possible charcoal at a fair price. Made by grill masters for grill masters.”


Here at Blackbear Charcoal, outdoor cooking is our passion. Smoking, grilling, BBQ we love it all and we never cook over anything but charcoal. 


But we were disappointed in some way with every product we tried, lump is inconsistent and often has too much un-carbonized wood. Briquettes are full of additives, they smoke like the decks on fire, and they produce too much ash. Some we loved but they were just too expensive. 


And almost all of them are made with mature hardwoods that take decades to grow, often harvested in rural areas of impoverished countries. Making their sustainability and environmental impact suspect. 


So we asked, Why not make charcoal that combines the consistency of briquettes with the long burn time and low ash of lump and make it from an environmentally sustainable source?


So that’s exactly what we did. Our charcoal is made from mature coconut shells, recycled from the food and beverage industry. With no additives and a large shape, you can use it in your kamado without fear of ash choking out your fire and you can use it in your Weber or PK with the consistency you expect of briquettes, our Hex Logs will burn the same every time. 

Hex Logs Burn Long, Burn Pure, and Burn Hot. That’s our promise and we stand behind it. 


We are American owned and operated and located in Franklin, Tennessee.
