We've just upgraded our briquette machine to a brand new model that produces well compact, dense briquettes. The estimated dispatch time is approx 2-3 weeks.
A cylindrical compressed fuel, our Oak Briquettes are the ideal addition to firewood. They are made from sawdust and shavings, a waste by-product from the thousands of beautiful oak beams, shelves and handmade furniture we supply around the country each year. Our briquettes are composed of mostly oak shavings with a small percentage of redwood.
Due to the small size of our oak briquettes we recommend using them in conjunction with logs. The main benefit of our oak briquettes is fast, intense heat making them an exceptional fuel to get your stove up to temperate.
A softwood briquette may be the same weight but it would produce much less heat, for a shorter amount of time making it significantly lower quality than oak briquettes we supply!
Oak briquettes contain a greater calorific value than coal. They’re a fantastic fuel option for lighting your stove as they deliver a huge amount of heat in a hurry. Great for your stove and the environment!
Price: £195 inc.VAT for a 400kg dumpy bag of briquettes including delivery to the majority of the UK. Delivery to other areas will be subject to additional charges. You can email us your postcode for an accurate cost.
Our oak briquettes may have some loose shavings in the bottom of the bag. May have up to 20% redwood shavings within the briquettes. The briquettes vary in size depending on the material they are made from.
Weight may vary depending of the density of the material

How to light your stove:
Place a natural fire lighter on the grate or fire bed. Start stacking softwood kindling jenga style 3 or 4 rows high. This method ensures sufficient airflow between each piece of kindling.
Gently rest one or two small kiln dried logs up against the kindling stack. Compressed oak briquettes are an excellent addition to logs at this stage!
Make sure all the air vents are fully open before setting the fire lighter alight, leave the stove door ajar slightly to enhance the airflow and speed up the lighting process.
Now light your fire lighter. Once the fire is burning vigorously you can close the door fully and add logs or oak briquettes as you need them.
