Don’t be expecting us to make this too often, Sweet Chestnut is a particularly tricky charcoal to make well…
When fired it fractures both radially and concentrically exposing lots of surface area. This makes it keen to burn hot and fast, just what you’d want for dirty steak night.
If your cooker has good air flow control you can close the lid and slow it right down. It will reward you with bags of sweet, light flavour. It won’t make life easy for you, but then who wants an easy life anyway?
