Lighting made simpler

This is the easiest charcoal you will ever have to light, full stop. Simply fill your EGG up to two inches below your cooking surface, and place a lit firelighter in the centre. Come back in ten minutes, and close the lid.

It's easy to light the EGG; just place a firestarter in the centre of your charcoals and wait!

Deep, distinctive flavour

Our Oak & Hickory Lump Charcoal adds something special to even the most unlikley dishes. Cakes and breads adopt a delicious smoky depth; meat and seafood take on a complex, aromatic flavour profile. When our charcoal is in play, anything and everything tastes better.

The Perfect Steak

FAQs

Our lumpwood charcoal is made from pure, sustainably sourced hardwood, with no nasty chemical accelerants. This means it lights quickly and burns cleanly – good for cooking and good for your health. It is also remarkably economical, with the coals often reusable across multiple cooks. And charcoal isn’t just a fuel, it’s an ingredient in its own right. Each of our three different options lends its own unique flavour profile to your food.

Keep it somewhere dry, ideally in a garage or shed, stored in an airtight bin or our Shop now. When you first open a bag, the lumps are extremely dry and will light very quickly. If allowed to absorb a lot of moisture, they’ll be slower to light. To prevent this, fold over the opened top of the bag several times. If you’ve got a few remnants left in an older bag, light your EGG with a fresh new bag then add the older coals once the fire is going.

That depends. If you’re cooking at a high temperature, it will burn more quickly than if you’re cooking at a low one. An XL will get through charcoal faster than a MiniMax. On average, though, you should get around 24 hours of cooking from a single bag of charcoal.
