    The order arrived fast. I had never cooked a BBQ, the lumpwood lit well and stayed cooking hot for 3 hours food, even after that we could have slow cooked, the food had a delicious flavour!

    Fantastic charcoal, one of the best I’ve ever used. I used the same amount as I normally would but by the time I finished cooking, I could’ve carried on and cooked the same amount again at least twice over! The two 12kg bags I bought will last for ever at this rate!

    This is the first time for me using this product and yet again Big K do not let me down. Again good sized lumps and great burn time. I will be using this and the ACH15 together in the future on all my cooks.

    The goods arrived one negative was one of the skewers Bag was split and some had come out and gotten dirty due to the 12kg barbeque bag. Apart from that the products are great especially the apple wood lump wood is excellent burns well and better then the charcoal from the supermarkets and petroleum station. Some of e pieces are very small but being picky.

    I’m exceptionally happy with it. Having been fully fed up with the low grade cheap Tesco lumpwood and the sheer amount of horrible black smoke it was producing I was overwhelmed with how good this applewood was. Little to no smoke (until the food got onto the barbecue but even then still minimal amounts of smoke) and no longer annoying the neighbours!

    This charcoal appears to be more fragile than my favourite 15kg Dura Restaurant Grade Charcoal (ACH15), as it has quite a lot of smaller broken pieces in the mix.

    Beautiful smelling wood, food tastes magnificent & not like petrol, which it does with supermarket/garage bought coal. Ethics & provenance are super important to me & Big K ticks all those boxes. I used this with their Natural firelighters. I will never buy from any other company again
