It’s time to get up close and personal with our new Easy Lighting Compressed Briquettes. These dynamic and hardworking charcoal briquettes are an extension of the Au Natural family. This means they are almost as durable as their original cousins and they are just as sustainable. Plus they are made without any binders or additives meaning no hidden chemicals or nasties. With no sparking or odour, each briquette delivers consistency, heat and quality to every cook on your grill.

Experience a robust and healthy cooking time of up to 3 hours (depending on the grill). How?  The key to reliable performance and consistent high heat lies in the shape of the briquettes. The ‘tube’ shape with the central air chamber is specifically designed to help with airflow and circulation, meaning there’s more oxygen to improve the combustion process.

These little yet potent briquettes offer versatility too. This is because they break easily to the size that you want, reducing wastage and giving you more control over your cook.


Please note all cooking times are approximate and depend on a range of factors, including quantity of charcoal and type of barbecue used, lighting method and weather conditions.

Place 3-4 Big K firelighters on your barbecue, once the firelighters are burning, cover with briquettes to make a pyramid. This allows the flames to rise up from the bottom, heating the coals quickly and evenly.

After approximately 30 minutes, spread the briquettes out. Then, simply wait another 10 minutes and you're ready to start cooking.
