Learn how to properly light and use Prime 6 Charcoal for the best grilling experience.
Why choose Prime 6
Made from recycled hardwood waste sawdust. So you can feel good about your grilling - the way nature intended.
Better by design
Our unique hexagonal design lets air circulate better for high consistent heat – and more even cooking. You can stop, then relight it until it’s burned away, leaving almost no ash – and no cleanup.
Pure charcoal. Pure taste.
No binders. No fillers. No chemicals smoking up in your food. Just pure, flame-flavor.
Get the most from your grill
Prime 6 is denser than other charcoal, so it burns longer (4+ hours). 1lb of Prime 6 = 3lb lump charcoal.
Grilling means more than just a meal
It’s not just a juicy burger, a vegetable kebab crisscrossed with char, or a sizzling steak.
It’s dinner that turns into a party when the neighbors show up. Mustard on your fingers. Music on your speakers. “Who wants the last sausage?” (the dog). Bottom line: Grilling is a celebration.
That’s why we created Prime 6.
Engineered to perform
Prime 6 is the charcoal your ingredients deserve. It’s made from hardwood sawdust, that’s compressed before it’s carbonized, so the oil in the wood is the only binder.
The result? Pure charcoal, and a clean burn – no chemical smoke on your food.
We need to talk about smoke
You want it. Smoke adds amazing flavor to your food. It’s the essence of grilling. The power of the flame. But not all smoke is good! If your charcoal’s packed full of chemicals, that’s what smoking up all over your food.
Experience the pure flavor of your food.
Grilling. The way nature intended.

The engineering is brilliant! It was burning hot for 5 hours straight at The Wine & Food Festival and kept going after the event was over, I am very impressed with it.

Prime 6 reduces the amount of hardwood I burn during cooks and saves on precious storage space. It is my preferred source of heat for all of my cooking.
