Beech Briquettes

  • Designed for use in a Pizza oven. Each box contains 6 x 25cm 100% Beech briquettes that have been extruded from sustainably sourced Beech hardwood.
  • Great value alternative to using regular hardwood logs. Each Briquette can give out the heat equivalent of 3 Kiln Dried Logs.
  • Ultra-low moisture content – only 8% so each briquette burns hot and long with a consistent ember that helps take the variables out of cooking.
  • Ideal for use in commercial kitchens, pizza trucks, or a home garden pizza oven. Each compact box takes up little room, so easy to store.
  • Perfect size box to easily cook over a dozen pizzas in a single cooking session. Simply break a single briquette into two pieces and place on top of kindling to ignite. Feed more briquettes as required to the fire until desired temperature is achieved with a good ember bed.

Speciality Smoking Wood Chunks

All our speciality smoking wood chunks are a selection of different smoking wood we carefully source from countries around the world.  We spend a long time building relationships with other wood suppliers who can meet our high quality standards.   When we import the wood, it is carefully quality control checked and then kiln dried again  before packaging to make sure they arrive in the best condition possible.

They are the perfect size for use with grills as they do not instantly combust and provide a good long smoke if used in a smoker, Kamado style or kettle BBQ.  It is down to your preference if you soak them or not, experiment and find what is best for your cooking methods. Our speciality smoking wood chunks come in a large 15 litre box and weigh at least 5kg (for the wood, not the packaging) giving excellent value for money.

Our Customers have to say

I rarely leave feedback, but I thought my smoking brethren deserved to know that I highly recommend this product. I live on a small Island so have to order pretty much everything I need for grilling / smoking. I ordered a box of cherry and the wood itself looked to be of a very high quality. Tried them out smoking 4 chickens for a gathering at a friends and not only did I love the flavour, but so did the other 15 people there. I’ll definitely be ordering this product and the others from these guys in the future.

Amazon Customer

Brilliant wood smoking chunks. There are plenty different sized chunks in the box which makes it easier to arrange them to get more or less smoking through the cook. 
I have used them on my weber kettle bbq to low n slow smoke a 6lb pork loin which turned out to be amazing as did the 12lb brisket and the two chickens that I have smoked.

Definitely worth the money and I will be trying some other wood chunks from this supplier.

David B

Fantastic quality chunks that burn well and produce a fantastic smoke. Have used these to smoke both pork and beef with great effect.

I thought the price was a little high when I first ordered but to be fair, the box seems to just keep going after several all day smokes…. and I use a LOT of wood when I bbq.

Would buy again.

SCOOB

My main impression with this deal was the quantity of wood for the price. 5kg for £20 is pretty good compared with most of the items on offer that I have seen.

Used one chunk, not soaked, straight on the charcoal in my water smoker and stuck a medium chicken in the top section. The chunk eventually flamed but produced a fair amount of smoke and the chicken was a pleasant light golden colour with a not-overpowering smoke aroma. For a longer smoke I will soak these, but all in all a nice flavour of smoke and a good quantity of wood for the price. Recommended.

I bbq regularly and finding affordable wood chunks is brilliant. This offered excellent value compared to other options online – and I’ve looked far and wide!

I ordered the hickory chunks for my Weber kettle. The chunks are good quality and it’s clear that they’ve been stored well. Some hickory chunks are hefty, which will lend itself well to long low and slow smokes using the minion method.

Bbqing in the UK can be challenging, as the products are often US based and prices and availability can be a nightmare. ‘Grilling Wood’ is a small British company and it’s great to support that in the world of bbq. Also, when I’ve contacted them with a query the customer service has been top class and they went above and beyond.

I’ve ordered olive, oak and orange from them. The quality across these different species has been high and the company will be my ‘go to’ for a product that I go through a lot of.

Kindle Customer

Very good value. So far I’ve used them on a 10 hour smoke and I was very happy with the results. You don’t need to use too many pieces and they give a long slow burn.
