We have a variety of lighting agents for briquettes, wood wool, natural firelighters, standard firelighters, lighting gel or a chimney starter. But charcoal briquettes do need to have a slightly different lighting method than lumpwood and they can take longer to light but these methods shown for easy & quick results.
The main idea is to have all the coal grey and fully lit before you start to cook on them, these methods will help. Remember theres no need to rush, each method has a slightly different lighting time but light at least 30mins before you want to be cooking, a perfect time to prepare what you are going to be cooking.
Here we have used our great wood free briquettes made from coconut husks, mango stone & corn residue but the same applies to our standard briquettes.
