Our charcoal is produced using a British designed and manufactured retort kiln.
High quality charcoal can be produced and at a much more efficient rate, 75% fewer pollutants and minimal smoke than that using a traditional ring kiln method.
It does this by having a separate kiln to the firebox, where the wood is baked at over 500 degrees C. Moisture and gases are driven off and the gasses re-circulated to fire the kiln until these are exhausted. The kiln then cools down leaving only high quality charcoal remaining.
You will notice Birchwood bags of charcoal are larger in volume for the same weight in comparison to much of the imported varieties. This is due to the high quality, extremely low moisture content making lighting easy.
Local Delivery around Herefordshire can be arranged.
Pallet Delivery is available 24 or 48 hour service.
We use pallets and cardboard pallet boxes to minimise on plastic usage.
Minimum order of 18x3kg or 12x6kg.
