The Best of British Woodfuels, all in one place….

With everything going on in the world right now, it’s never been more important to back British business. We’ve been working for a long time to source some great UK woodfuels and we’re extremely proud to present our new collection. With some fantastic new products from England, Scotland and Wales to add to our range, there has never been a better time to buy British!

The great thing about these products is that they are all excellent. Our team have tested them all and we’re really impressed with the quality and performance. As an added bonus, they are all made from UK sustainable materials and are Woodsure Ready to Burn Certified.

The Woodsure certification is a high standard and takes into account quality, materials, composition, chemical analysis, emissions and much more. You can read more about this standard in our blog post.

Try the full range of UK Products to help you make the switch and see which works best for you. We’ve put together a British bundle which contains a full pack of each fuel and is delivered straight to your doorstep.

Woodlets release a new briquette…

We’ve been waiting a long time for this one! Safe to say, it did not disappoint during testing. Before we commit to any new product, we always test it first. Our team have a range of different stoves between us, so we really put each product through it’s paces. Here are some of the best things about these briquettes.

  • Made in Scotland, entirely from sustainable, renewable Scottish timber products
  • 100% Additive Free
  • Woodsure Ready To Burn Certified
  • Easy and versatile to use – can be broken easily – great for every stage of the fire
  • Square shape means they don’t roll in the hearth, ideal for open fires.
  • Very clean burning with minimal ash residue
  • Long Burning – Expect between 1.5-2 hrs per log
  • They comply with the Clean Air Act – in fact, they exceed it!

Wales produces a long – awaited UK RUF Block

Another great product on the shelves this year is our new, Welsh RUF Block.

‘Dragon’s Teeth’ are a significant new stock item for us. Especially as the majority of timber from RUF blocks sold in the UK comes from Eastern Europe and Russian sources. Finding an alternative for this has been of real importance to us.

Dragon’s Teeth are manufactured in Wales and made entirely from British timber products. They are 100% additive free. They’re Woodsure Ready to Burn Certified too so can be used in smokeless zones with a DEFRA approved appliance.

We’ve been really impressed with the quality and performance of these briquettes. They give a fantastic, consistent heat output and are really versatile. Use them to create a heart to your fire or as a main, long burning fuel. They can be used on most sizes of stove and are great for open fires too. The burn time is very similar to that of our usual RUF Oak, expect an average of 2hrs per block, depending on your stove.

Quick guide to choosing the best Wood Fuel for your stove and lifestyle.

Wood Fuel Co-operative

*Break - We strongly recommend you break these briquettes in half (or less for very small stoves) because they do expand whilst burning and you don't want them to overfill the fire.
*Easy to light - We always use a Firelighter and Kindling Sticks to start our fires. Most briquettes are graded four stars to light because they are quite dense and require kindling.


  • All stove and flue combinations tend to have different burning characteristics. Fuel that works well in my stove may not work so well in your stove, and vice-versa.
  • Most modern stoves are more efficient than most older stoves, meaning a modern quality stove will burn fuel more economically and generate more heat over a longer period.
  • Always try to burn fuel with a 'lick of flame'. Smouldering fuel to try to extend burn time is bad for your stove, flue and the environment due to unburned particulate matter in the smoke.
  • Be prepared to break briquettes into smaller sections to fit into your stove comfortably. Many briquettes do expand whilst burning and you don't want them to expand onto the glass.
  • The chart above indicates which briquettes are easy to break. Some are small enough so they don't need breaking. This makes for a cleaner environment around your stove.
  • All briquettes, except Everyday Value and Hotmax, benefit hugely from using kindling to light them. I suggest five kindling sticks will be sufficient, meaning a net should last 30 days.
