Marabu charcoal is growing in popularity in professional kitchens and barbecue connoisseurs and it is easy to see why.

Made sustainably by harvesting wood by the very invasive thorn bush which grows aggressively and encroaches land which must be controlled. Due to its density it makes a fantastic hardwood charcoal, which is long lasting, up to 3 hours, and flavoursome.

With absolutely no additives or chemicals, RCH15 is popular in restaurants across the country, but is also perfect for home barbecues, 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.

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.

    Great heat, but sparks quite a bit when first lit. Easily retains heat hot for a large family BBQ.

    The charcoal itself is always OK but I take issue with the packaging which seems to always contain the either plastic threads from the bag (why they can’t be more sustainable I do t know) or other rubbish (empty crisp packet so far this time) which means I have to be careful when using the fuel so as not to contaminate the bbq.

    This charcoal has mixed sized lumps, some fist sized, some egg sized and very little dust left in the bag. It lit easily in a chimney and burned hot. The coal responded well to being fanned by a 12v fan and cooked lamb kebab nicely. I also used some binchotan in the charcoal mix.

    Great charcoal, if you have the right lump size

    Andrian (verified owner)

    The product itself is good, but with my recent purchase I was very disappointed to see that roughly 80% – 85% of the charcoal consist of small pieces, only a few large lumps. I use it for smoking or low and slow, but with the current bag content….there is no use of it. For example, yesterday I did 13hrs cook of pork shoulder and I had to refill my kamado twice – the small pieces doesn’t last long!
    I am regular user of Big K products and never had that issue before. I will be returning customer again, that is for sure, but I would expect the quality of the product to meet the standards.

    Excellent charcoal, takes a little longer to get going than something like Kamado joe big block but lasts as long if not a little longer, I use it in a Kamado Joe classic 3 and I’ve slow cooked a brisket for 8 hours with it and it lasted without needing more and I’ve used it to cook pizzas, again worked perfectly

    An excellent product! I normally buy the more expense restaurant quality (which is also excellent), but Big K were out of stock. This charcoal has all the properties of the more expense one except it’s in smaller pieces.
    This can be of benefit particularly when cooking smaller quantities.
    Definitely recommend the Charcoal and as ever the charming and helpful staff at Big K!

    The best charcoal I have encountered in over 60 years of barbecuing and not much difference in price to 5 x 3kg of supermarket charcoal which is much inferior. This burns long and slow and you don’t end up with the bottom of the bag being nothing but dust.

    Colin Stowe (verified owner)

    This was the first time that I have used Marabu charcoal and although the burn time wasn’t as long as I had expected there were some good size pieces of charcoal along with some smaller bits. It lit very easily and gave a nice smoky flavour to the brisket that I was cooking.
    I’m looking forward to trying some other products in the big K range and reviewing them on my YouTube channel.
    Keep BBQing and have fun guys….

    I’ve been impressed by the easier / cleaner start with RCH15 in my Grden V1 Kamado, fulfilling long 12+ hour low and slow cooking with ease, without a billow and holding 115°c average throughout, then having enough charcoal left to ramp it up to 220°c to roast the potatoes during the resting period.

    Highly recommended and now my go to charcoal.

    I use this for my market stall grilling shish tawouk. The charcoal lights easily in a chimney, it produces a lot of heat and burns well with a white ash. I use an electric fan to boost the output and need to replenish the open grill with a handful of coals every 30minutes to get a continuous fire for 5 hours.
    The charcoal doesn’t spit, it cooks well and is reasonably economic which is why I regularly buy it

    After trying many other brands of charcoal (some rather expensive ones), I have homed in on the restaurant grade big k products. They fit my needs perfectly. They light easily in my kamado, they burn cleanly and give the food a very light smoking – exactly what I want. I can ramp up the smoke when I want with wood chunks of my choice. One very happy customer here!

    This is wonderful charcoal. It smell nice, does not add any nasty flavours to the cooking, and stays hot for ages. I do a lot of cooking outside both on charcoal and on seasoned hardwood, so I need consistent quality. This is good stuff.

    Service was excellent! The charcoal itself is excellent! The bag I received has a really good mix of smaller bits and huge ones, some look like charcoal logs. It takes a bit more lighting than charcoal I’ve previously used but I imagine that’s because of the density and it’s not an issue in a chimney starter. Once it’s lit it burns super hot and for a really long time so is really versatile for both low and slow cooks or a quick sear.

    Honestly this is the best charcoal I’ve ever used and I’ve been BBQing for over 25 years! Kept my bullet smoker going for well over 6 hours on Christmas Day, enough for two large racks of ribs with one lit chimney starter over a layer of unlit! Absolutely amazing stuff!!

    Good product, although some charcoal is broken into smaller pieces, however it lights quite easy and is ready to cook in no time, also the durability is also good, giving plenty of time for the cooking.

    Sizes can vary greatly, on this occasion its mostly very small unfortunately with some reasonable size pieces on top, but by the time I get to anywhere near the bottom of the bag a 1/3 of it will be unusable dust and what I can use burns so quickly being so small it won’t last long at all,

    Always been a fan of the flavour profile but can be a little disappointing when I receive a bag of shrapnel

    This is simply the best charcoal if you are serious about your grilling or barbecuing.

    Nice big chunks, burns hot and leaves little ash. Of course, the Big K Dura and Flama products are also excellent, but this is my preferred solution for use in my Kamado.

    It’s also delivered free to your door if you buy two bags and is competitively priced.

    Highly recommended!

Create a base of Marabu 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. Deliveries are made by APC 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) .

Marabu Charcoal is sourced from an invasive thorn tree. Harvesting this invasive species reclaims farmland and provides valuable work for local communities. Read more about Big K's commitment to sustainable and ethical charcoal here.
