    Always good sized lumps, which give a really long ‘low and slow’ cooking time, as well as brilliant high burn for fast cooks

    Easy lighting with a consistent burn, gave an excellent depth of flavour to a Wagyu Bone in Rib-eye, which was seared over a direct heat then finished indirectly. Will definitely purchase again.

    Great advice over the phone. Great products. I did initially feel that bit was expensive, but the quality of it makes it worth the price. You get what you pay for! burns hot and for a long time so I’m using it at less then half the rate as the cheap supermarket charcoal.

    A+. Performs differently to commonly available charcoal, this burns long and hot. I’ve used this for both grilling and in a small offset smoker. Almost all of my box was made up of large branch pieces and very few small pieces. Will buy again.

    Great consistent product. Gives you heat and long burn time and a consistent cook each time. FSC approved too so less impact on habitat and deforestation but I’d like to know more about these factors. If I could find a similar product that was more sustainable I would switch. But this is as good as it get’s for me now.

    I have always bought supermarket bbq charcoal before .
    But after having this recommended I can seriously say this is by far the
    Best for both cooking on the bbq and smoking in the smoker .it lasts for hours and gives the best even cooking I have ever had .and I’m not some professional reviewer just a guy in Aberdeen who loves his bbq .

Create a base of Flama 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 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. Deliveries are made by Parcelforce or DPD.

Orders placed before midnight Monday to Thursday will be processed overnight and shipped out the following working day. Orders placed on Friday and over the weekend before midnight on Sunday will be processed and shipped out on Monday (Or on the following working day on a bank holiday) .

Click here to read our full delivery details.

Flama is manufactured from a sustainable source of hardwood in Indonesia. We have a strict quality control procedure in place with our supplier which ensures that the wood is harvested using a controlled harvesting method which leaves the roots intact so that the tree can regrow sustainably.
