Top tips when you're out and about


Briquettes are very easy to purchase and are found in local supermarkets, petrol stations and DIY retailers. Considered by some to be the ‘fast food’ of charcoal, they are produced from the smaller pieces of wood or dust left over in the furnace once the lumpwood has been removed, simply compressed into a briquette using a binding agent. They are consequently denser than lumpwood, more difficult to light, but longer and hotter burning. Many brands may contain wood by-products, combined with additives, starches and sometimes waste material, which sometimes cause a chemical smell. Zip briquettes are 100% natural, containing only wood, making them cleaner burning and producing great tasting food.
