Cuba – the exotic island of salsa, succulent Ropa Vieja and now… El Cubano.

El Cubano is a restaurant grade quality lumpwood charcoal, manufactured from 100% Marabu charcoal. Produced in Cuba, Marabu is a durable wood that produces a high quality, long lasting charcoal.

With absolutely no additives or chemicals, El Cubano is popular in restaurants across the country, but is also perfect for home BBQs, especially if you need a long cook time for a large joint of meat or a long party. We only sell the larger graded pieces, giving you a consistently high heat that’ll last for up to 3 hours of cooking.

Add a touch of tropical flavour to your dish or BBQ with El Cubano. Our fiery friend turns Cuban cooking into a taste sensation.

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.

Create a base of El Cubano 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.

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.

For next day delivery, order before 12pm Monday to Thursday. Orders placed between 12pm Thursday and 12pm Friday will be delivered the following Monday. Additional charges apply for Saturday delivery.

El Cubano is sourced from an invasive thorn tree which grows across Cuba. Harvesting this invasive species reclaims farmland across the area and provides valuable work for local communities. Read more about Big K's commitment to sustainable and ethical charcoal here.
