Birch charcoal really is a thing of beauty.

It has a mirror-like finish, with growth rings hardly visible. It’s a very dense charcoal that will have hardly any shakes, so the burning quality is great.
Responds really well to changes in air flow for controlling cooking temperature.

Birch has a subtle sweet, but kind of minerally flavour profile.  Really works with grazing animals, we can’t help feeling sad if someone grills lamb with anything else…

  1. James Stockley

    “Before finding Oxford Charcoal, we only really used basic charcoal for our grills. Then we ordered Birch, and it has absolutely skyrocketed our business. Customers love our beef dishes, and almost everyone leaves a great comment afterwards. Brilliant.”

  2. Graham Johnson

    “Well, if you are using any other charcoal for your lamb, you are doing it wrong. The way it cooks and leaves the most beautiful flavours is fantastic. Long-time customers in the making.”

  3. Vincent Taylor

    Loving the Birch Charcoal, first time buyers and it has been great for us.

  4. Jake Carter

    “Charcoal-grilled food is a staple of our work. Oxford Charcoal has shown us that there is only one clear winner for beef dishes, birch charcoal. Absolutely gorgeous flavours, every time.”

  5. Ben Lister

    “We needed something to spruce up our dishes, and the birch charcoal we got made us go from an 8 to a 10. Truly incredibly charcoal, with such a beautiful, smoky flavour.”

    Lamb chops are a favourite of mine, and with this new Birch Charcoal they tasted fantastic, really happy.
