    My first time using the Dura charcoal and have to say I was very impressed with how quickly it lit with very little firelighters (eco firelighters used) and the amount of heat generated meant I was cooking within 30 minutes, as it was just my wife and I only used a few pieces of charcoal just enough to cook chicken and seafood, great even heat distribution and gave a really good flavour to the food.
    Some really big bits of charcoal in the bag which will need reducing to smaller more use able pieces which is better than lots of useless powder in the bag. This is a little more expensive than my usual charcoal but I feel its well worth the cost, would definitely recommend

    Excellent delivery service that is very informative when it is due at your doorstep. I have decided to give this type of fuel a try as opposed from the quality briquettes I have been using for many years. I have yet to use this type but am ready to go and see if this lump wood provides the extra flavour and durability it claims to provide, so time will tell. Excellent web site that not only provides quality products but also top tips and recipes. So far so good.

    Great charcoal. Very hot and hardly any smoke. Didn’t burn for as long as I expected so ended up using more than was hoping to for one grilling session

    Disappointed with the size of charcoal in this bag. All small lumps. Usually much bigger lumps so must have been unlucky this time. Dura charcoal burns clean and gives good heat. Nice for low and slow lasting a longtime. I will mix the small lumps in with my other charcoal and hope this is a one off.

    Charcoal is great. Big lumps of long lasting charcoal. Delivered v efficiently – although each sack comes in a cardboard box – which means a lot of rubbish.

    This is good charcoal. Burns for a long time. My only issues with it are sometimes the pieces are far too big (size of your forearm), and also the excessive amount of wastage/dust/shrapnel you get at the bottom of the bag. I usually get a couple of KG of unusable wastage which is a bit too much.

    Nice charcoal, pieces not as big as I would’ve expected for restaurant grade though. Also seems to generate a fair bit of ash that stops airflow (using on long slow BBQ cooks). Think that I prefer the ACH15 that I have used previously from BigK.

    Charcoal has been great. Would be 5 stars except bag seemed to have been poorly handled and as a result a lot of small pieces.

    Massive lumps great when I need bigger cooking area. Burns a bit faster than the apple wood. I’ve found mixing the two works well, larger bits of this and then smaller bits of apple. Makes a nice balanced cooking temp and time

    First time using this type of charcoal and have had 3-4 bbq so far, this charcoal last very long and it gives an intense heat. Not yet tried on long cooks (+ 3hours).
    So far very happy and will use this as my regular charcoal.

    Good lumpwood charcoal. May need to break larger pieces up if you use a chimney starter like me.

Create a base of Dura 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 20 minutes, spread the coals out. Then, simply wait another 5-10 minutes and you're ready to start cooking.
