Product Description

Real Lumpwood Barbecue Charcoal.

Product Information



Keep in a cool dry place, out of reach of children!

Prepare & Use

Barbecue cooking is easy, fun and safe as long as common sense is used!
To Light!
Place several Big K charcoal lighter cubes on a bed of Big K charcoal
Heap more charcoal over and around the lighter cubes
Light the cubes with a long taper or match, wait for the flames to die down and for the charcoal to take on a greyish appearance about 20-25 mins. Start to cook.
Heap charcoal onto BBQ grate and spread out over cooking area.
Using Big K lighting fluid, squeeze approx. half a cup of fluid over the charcoal. Allow to soak for 1 min. before lighting.
Light the charcoal and wait as described above.
Cook over Heat!
Not over flames.
How Much Charcoal to Use
Normal Grilling
Cover the cooking area of your BBQ to an approximate 2" depth of Big K charcoal.
Spit Roasting
You will need more charcoal than for grilling because of extended cooking time.
It is always better to have too much than too little charcoal.
(Big K Charcoal Products do not 'go off' if kept dry)
The bigger the BBQ Grill the bigger the bag of Big K Charcoal required.
Never Use indoors.
Never Allow children near or leave a lit barbecue unattended.
Never Attempt to light using petrol, methylated spirits or other flammable liquids.
Never Try to move a lit barbecue.
Never Pour any flammable liquid, even proper barbecue lighting fuel onto a lit or warm barbecue - it can cause a dangerous flash flame.
Never Place hot ashes into a dustbin - wait until they are cold or douse with water before disposal.
Never Try to cook over flames - it burns the outside of the food without properly cooking the inside.
Safety First
Take care and enjoy your barbecue
Under no circumstances burn charcoal indoors without adequate & effective ventilation since an accumulation of fumes can be harmful

Didnt burn well

We tried to burn this charcoal in a Weber grill. What we found was a preponderance of really small pieces, which fell through the grates and were lost. The larger pieces, upon igniting, quickly broke into smaller pieces as well. Finally, I added more charcoal to the hot coals and, 45 minutes later, found that not all of the new pieces had ignited. Maybe I am just short of barbecue skillz, but I have had much better results from briquets, multiple times in the past. I am unsure of this lump charcoal.

I have bought and used this brand for ever. Usually comes in a paper bag. This came in a plastic sac and the lump wood was crushed, completely unusable.

Thank you for your review. We're sorry to hear that you weren't happy with this product and have passed on your feedback to our supplier.
