"Our charcoal briquettes offer long burn time and high calorific value"

Cooking with 100% Organic Charcoal Briquettes

High heat output: Charcoal briquettes can reach higher temperatures than other fuel sources like wood or gas. This allows for more efficient cooking, especially when searing or grilling meats.

Even heat distribution: Charcoal briquettes provide a more consistent and even heat source compared to wood, which can be prone to flare-ups and hot spots. This allows for more precise cooking and better control over the cooking process.

Long burn time: Charcoal briquettes typically burn longer than wood, allowing for longer cooking sessions without needing to constantly add more fuel.

Low ash production: Charcoal briquettes produce less ash than wood, which makes for easier cleanup and less mess to deal with after cooking.

Organic Charcoal Briquettes Manufacturing Process

Collecting charcoal fines: Charcoal fines are the small pieces of charcoal that remain after larger pieces have been used or processed. These fines are collected and stored until they can be used to make briquettes. We only use Quebracho Blanco charcoal fines.

Mixing charcoal fines with a binder: Charcoal fines are mixed with a binding agent. Our briquettes are 100% organic as we only use yuca starch to hold the briquettes together. The binder helps to improve the structural integrity of the briquettes and makes them easier to handle.

Forming the briquettes: The mixture is then fed into a briquette press, which compresses the mixture under high pressure to form uniform pillow shaped briquettes.

After the briquettes are formed, they are cooked in an industrial oven at a high temperature of around 200-300 degrees Celsius for a period of time. This process, known as carbonization, removes any remaining moisture from the briquettes and converts them into a more stable and combustible form of charcoal. The length of the carbonization process can affect the final quality of the briquettes, such as their burn time and ash production. Once the briquettes have been carbonized, they are then cooled and packaged for distribution. .
