    Burnt through to ash, good for longer bbq-ing roasting.

    I think these are good from a sustainable perspective but do not have the longevity I expected. Heat was seriously dropping after 1 hour 30 when roasting a chicken using a Weber kettle.

    Very fast and easy lighting, very low smoke, so neighbour – friendly, low neutral odour, long burn time. Superb product with a ‘green’ source using waste coconut shells. A bit pricey but I’d rather pay more for this than keep buying the supermarket crap. I’ve only tried it once and I will be able to use less now I know how good it is and how long it burns for, which will improve the value-for-money of it.

    Good ish product with good sustainability credentials. I use it to top up the coals once my cook is underway but it does seem to burn relatively faster than other coconut briquettes I’ve used that are a similar price.

    Promp delivery , 1st time I have used these briquettes, these light easily and burn well but do not last as long as the standard briquettes ,I used these in conjunction with the au natural lump wood briquettes to cook a pork shoulder (10 hours ) and would buy again – not yet tried on a high temp but suspect they will be fine

There are two methods to lighting Big K Coconut Shell Briquette:

Using Big K firelighters

Place several Big K Woodies Fire lighters onto a bed of Big K Coconut Shell Briquettes, then heap more briquettes over and around the wood wool lighters. Light the Woodies with a long match or taper, and wait roughly 20-30 minutes for the flames to die down and for the briquettes to take on a greyish appearance. Then, spread out the coals, wait for any further flames to die down and start to cook. Remember to cook over heat not flames.

Using Big K Lighting Gel

Heap Big K Coconut Shell Briquettes onto the BBQ grate, then spread out over the cooking area. Using Big K lighting fluid/gel squeeze approximately half a cup of fluid over the briquettes, then allow to soak in for 1 minute before lighting. Wait roughly 20-30 minutes for the flames to die down and for the charcoal to take on a greyish appearance. Then, spread out the coals, wait for any further flames to die down and start to cook. Remember to cook over heat not flames.

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. Deliveries are made by Parcelforce or DPD.
