Bar-Be-Quick’s Wood Free Briquette is the first 100% sustainable charcoal line. They are made from waste products including coconut husk, mango stone and corn cobs. The evenly shaped briquettes are easy to light, they just require a little help from lighting fluid, lighting gel or any firelighter.

PLEASE READ THESE INSTRUCTIONS CAREFULLY AND IN FULL BEFORE USE
We recommend you light your charcoal with Bar-Be-Quick Lighting Fluid, Gel or Firelighter Cubes and follow the instructions on the pack. Always place your barbecue on a flat, firm, non-flammable heat resistant surface.
Using Lighting Fluid or Gel
Pile the charcoal into a pyramid shape.
Cover generously with lighting fluid or gel.
After approximately 1 minute, light with a long match or taper.
Using Lighting Cubes
Place 2 or 3 cubes in the barbecue bowl or on the charcoal grid if supplied.
Pile the charcoal over the cubes in a pyramid shape, ensuring sufficient air space to allow to burn with a flame.
Light the cubes with a long match or taper.
Using a Chimney Starter
Place 2-3 lighting cubes or 3-4 sheets of scrumpled newspaper under the base of the chimney and fill the top with charcoal. Light the cubes or newspaper and wait approx 15-20 minutes
After approximately 15-20 minutes the charcoal will be covered in a fine grey ash. Position the charcoal carefully for your chosen cooking method. You are now ready to cook.
This charcoal can be topped up during use with small amounts of untreated lumpwood or briquettes as required.
You normally use around 0.50 – 0.75kg of charcoal per hour.

• Never attempt to light charcoal with petrol, methylated spirits or any flammable liquid not specifically designed for this purpose.
• Never place your barbecue on, or near, anything liable to be damaged by heat or flare up or from hot fat which may spit during cooking.
• Due to the potential risks involved with barbecuing, it is recommended that an adult not consuming alcohol is in control of the barbecue and that first aid and other emergency provisions such as fire extinguishers, are at hand.
• Always keep children and pets away from the barbecue and the barbecue area.
• Never leave a lit barbecue unattended.
• Never handle the barbecue while in use as it soon becomes very hot.
• To prevent food poisoning, always ensure that food is completely defrosted before cooking commences and that it is always cooked thoroughly.
