Beech Nestro are made in Germany from pure beech grindings, which are very fine and so produce a dense, dust-free briquette. The beech sawdust comes from a company producing high-end beech products and structures. These Beech Nestro are quite simply the best briquette we have ever found.
Each chunky log weighs around 2.5kg, so they’re great for bigger stoves. For smaller stoves, just break them into pieces before using. This is easy to do, – break them by sharply tapping two of the heat logs together a couple of times. They’re very highly compressed, so they produce no dust and this density helps them burn for several hours. Best of all, they also produce huge amounts of heat with an attractive flame. They expand by about 20% as they burn, so place them across the firebox and just use small amounts until you’re confident with their burning characteristics on your particular stove or fire.
We think these are the best briquette we’ve ever stocked – they give great heat, very clean burning and are dust free, so they’re much better for people with asthma.
Great for both stoves and open fires, Beech Nestro are best used on an established fire because they don’t light easily and need a decent air flow to get going. For most stoves we recommend breaking them in half, as they will expand a little while burning.
None of our briquettes contain additives or chemicals. They are made from pure, untreated wood by-product and are held together by compression alone.

Plastic is widely used for wrapping briquettes, in order to ensure that they stay dry, as a damp briquette will break up and be unsuitable for burning. The environmental impact of our products is important to us, so we are constantly working with our suppliers to improve the sustainability of their packaging by using cardboard in place of plastic wherever possible.
