Frequently Asked Questions

What exactly does all natural mean?

Organic. Natural. No additives or chemicals or accelerants! Unlike other briquettes made with a variety of fillers and accelerants, ours is just plain wood. That means you have a natural fire and healthier food.

What exactly is a charcoal briquette?

A briquette (or briquet) is a compressed block combustible material used typically for grilling. The term derives from the French word brique meaning brick. Because they are man made (compared to lump charcoal), they are uniform in size, weight, shape and burn. Better Wood Products uses only 100% wood in our charcoal. Most briquettes however, are a mix of materials including coal, peat, sawdust, limestone, borax, wax and more.

How is briquette charcoal produced?

How do I light charcoal briquettes?

We always recommend using a charcoal chimney and a few sticks of all natural fatwood. It’s the easiest and fastest. No need to use dangerous chemicals and fluids.
