About Us

The world's your oyster. Grill it!

Frontier 100% Natural Hardwood Lump Charcoal and Briquets are some of the best in the world. We know, we looked. Our insatiable appetite for the best grilling fuel and flavors in the world led us to South America, where they created “Churrasco” and “Barbacoa” over open fires and grills.Our South American briquets and lump charcoal are made from quebracho, a wood famous for its density, high temperatures, and long-lasting heat that’s perfect for these dishes.Quebracho charcoal is charred in traditional adobe kilns the same way families have done it for generations, and briquets are made with starch, a natural binder, so there are no artificial ingredients like chemicals, fillers, or extenders.In our search, we also discovered the perfectly mixed balance of three premium Mexican hardwoods, mesquite, oak, and ebony, turned into the best premium lump charcoal in the world by craftspeople who’ve done it for generations with passion and perseverance. And it shows. You’ll be cooking with the finest Mexican lump charcoal that gives your food that signature South of the Border flavor right in your own backyard.Keep checking back as we continue to expand our product line and pursue the best and most interesting charcoals and flavors from around the world.
