Why British BBQ charcoal?
Our BBQ Charcoal is made in small batches, by us, and is the practical and ethical choice. The alternative to buying British BBQ Charcoal is imported charcoal which is detrimental to the environment and an inferior product. Our Charcoal lights easily, is ready to cook on quickly and has no nasty additives or accelerants.
You can also be happy in the knowledge that you are supporting local industry and the positive management of our precious native woodland. The wood we use to make our charcoal comes from sustainable woodland management, in the form of coppicing and thinning. Coppicing is the cutting down of trees and shrubs and allowing them to re-grow, this method of woodland management has been practiced in Britain for at least 6000 years. Coppicing, along with protection of re-growth, gives the tree or shrub a much longer and healthier life than if it were left to grow old without intervention.
The woodland we manage has been coppiced in the past (we even have the remains of a old charcoal burners huts) but has been neglected for 30 plus years. We are delighted to be reinstating the coppice cycle and to practice the age old art of charcoal making. Traditionally charcoal was produced by the method of Earth Burns, we use steel kilns to replicate the burn and produce a high quality British Barbeque Charcoal.
