When it comes to BBQs, there’s always a lot to prepare. However, with Big K Instant Light Lumpwood Charcoal FSC, firing up a perfectly heated barbecue is one thing you won’t have to worry about.

Big K Instant Light Lumpwood Charcoal FSC is the ultimate easy to use charcoal. There’s no need to worry about starting fuels like firelighters or lighting gel, as the charcoal has already been impregnated with lighting fluid. It’s packed into 1kg dust proof bags, perfect for a small home BBQ. All you need to do is light the bag and get ready to grill.

Our instant light charcoal is ready to cook on within 20 minutes, and it’s incredibly easy to light. Plus, the lumpwood charcoal has the Big K quality you expect, so there’s no compromise. Instant Light Lumpwood Charcoal is FSC certified, meaning it was produced and packed in a sustainable and legal way.

Take the stress out of your home BBQ with Big K Instant Light Lumpwood Charcoal FSC.

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.
