    Great delivery turn around. Reasonable size chunks- 3-4 inches -not the rubble you get at the supermarket- although no really big pieces which are better for long, low smokes

    Being South African, I place a big emphasis on good lumpwood charcoal. The restaurant grade definitely give a much longer grilling time and there is very little crumb left in the bag, which is always a plus.

    This charcoal is a million miles away from the usual supermarket/filling station stuff. Nice big chunks that don’t fall straight through the grate, maintains temperature for a couple of hours. Only used once so far; for a whole spatchcocked chicken that needed about an hour. Nice smoky flavour without the chemically taste that some fuels impart. Hot stuff indeed!

    I have used Big K for a while for all my charcoal needs with no problems at all. Unfortunately this latest order was not so good. I received 2 bags of the 12kg Chilla Grilla charcoal one of which was perfect but sadly the other one of them was of very poor quality, with large lumps of unburnt wood and generally not of the quality I have come to expect from Big K. However, Big K when contacted were very apologetic and offered to supply a replacement bag free of charge. This is the only mishap in an otherwise unblemished relationship with Big K so I will give them the benefit of the doubt this time around.

    This is probably even denser than the Dura and burns for a very long time, again good sized chunks, if you are wanting that perfectly hot 4-500 degrees for a longer time, then go for this

    Excellent product which is pricy but if you are BBQing you need a reliable heat source. Considering this burns for longer and it does ill testify to that then you are getting your value for money. The food cooks properly and tastes great.

    Very happy with the charcoal as it burns well and for a long time. There were solid pieces at the top of the bag but we found the charcoal at the bottom of the bag had broken into smaller pieces which wasn’t ideal. That being said, we would definitely buy again.

    First, despite the pandemic restrictions the Charcoal arrived in a timely fashion.

    But that is just where it starts. I’ve been barbecuing for 25 plus years, have tried many different restaurant grade charcoals but Chilla Grilla is by far the best. It heats consistently, provides a powerful, long lasting cook and provides a subtle addition to the flavour of the meats. Assuming the product doesn’t change, it’s safe to say I won’t be changing product again.

Create a base of Chilla-Grilla charcoal, add 3-4 Big K Woodies firelighters and light. Once the firelighters are burning, cover with additional charcoal to make a pyramid. This allows the flames to rise up from the bottom, heating the coals quickly and evenly.

After approximately 15 minutes, spread the coals out. Then, simply wait another 5-10 minutes and you're ready to start cooking.

Free next day delivery on orders over £30 (inc. VAT). For order values less than £30 a delivery charge of £8 applies. Exclusions apply outside of mainland UK, click here for more details on surcharges. All deliveries are made by Parcelforce.
