Breeding some commercial cows.  What are the best Charolais bulls for temperment first, with good feet and structure, maternal traits a plus.  Thanks

Firewater probably not good for dispositions. Some of them have plenty of attitude!! I've had some good Bohannons and Diablos.

I'm not a Char guy but I feel like I've heard the same on Firewater. I've had 1 Wrangler calf out of a docile cow and he was nice to work with. Also finished out very nicely for a "calving ease" bull

I looked at some outkast yearlings this past weekend that were real easy going out of a cow family that has some spunk. They were good too!

Before you can narrow your choices down.  What type of cows are you gong to be breeding?  I think you want to retain some heifers but how important are the steer calvws? How much calving ease do you need?  Would it be nice to have the cows keep their coat colors?
I am thinking of some all around spread bulls here for yuo to llook at and tell me if they are what you ar looking for:
Plesant Dawn Chisum:  This bull does what you want and more: https://www.charolaisbanner.com/pleasantdawn/semen.htm

Not plenty of other bulls will work for you-knowing what you want is important here.
