OUR CHARCOAL IS CRAFTED WITH CARE
In 2018 the UK used 100,000 tones of BBQ charcoal of which 95% was imported, what may not be obvious is that overseas charcoal manufacturing techniques only attain 5-8% efficiency meaning about 2 million tones of trees were used in the process. On the other hand our manufacturing efficiency is 28-40% thereby using less trees to give you a much better quality product.
At the Oxford Charcoal Company, we craft our charcoal in small batches to give you the best BBQ experience possible. Easy to light and ready to use in just 15 minutes, we like to think of it as Gourmet charcoal, adding superb flavours to your cooking using a variety of different woods.
And because it’s pure, there are no nasty chemicals spoiling the taste of your food. Quite simply, we think it’s the best charcoal in the world!
WHY DO WE SAY ‘GOURMET’?
– BECAUSE THE ONLY STUFF THAT GOES INTO OUR CHARCOAL IS LOVE –
PURE ADDITIVE FREE CHARCOAL
High fixed carbon, no nasty added chemicals, no tainting or paraffin odour. No petrol smells or odd flavours.
BURNS BETTER, LASTS LONGER
Our charcoal is graded for consistent lump size for an even burn and controllable temperature.
FROM SUSTAINABLE FORESTS
80% of our wood is from Forestry Commission approved woodland and is all certified by Grown in Britain.
FAST AND EASY LIGHTING
Our charcoal is quicker and easier to light. You will be able to add our charcoal to your BBQ during cooking.
CHOOSE YOUR FLAVOUR
Charcoal from different woods gives subtly different flavours for the ultimate gourmet BBQ Experience.
Low grade charcoal has a much lower fixed carbon content which makes it smoke heavy during cooking. Our’s doesn’t!
