RUF Oak briquettes are a top of the range, extremely dense and very clean hardwood RUF Block. They’re made from pure Oak sawdust which is by-product from a furniture manufacturer. These are the best RUF Briquette we have ever found.
Because they’re square, RUF Oak Blocks don’t roll in the hearth, so they’re easy and safe to use in an open fire.
These easy-to-use briquettes give out a steady heat with a nice flame. They burn for around two to four hours depending on airflow and they give off good heat for the duration of their burn time.
RUF Oak are best used as a ‘heat sink’ in the back of the fire, where they will glow for several hours and help create a really good heart in your fire. Having said that though, many people use RUF Oak as a sole fuel throughout the burn. They are a handy size so they’re excellent on a smaller stove or open fire, but they’re still chunky enough to give a really good burn time.
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 work constantly with our suppliers to improve the sustainability of their packaging by encouraging the use of cardboard in place of plastic wherever possible.
