Chunky Mix Pallet
- Dr. Heat Firelighters are made in the UK from dried chopped miscanthus grass soaked in scented candle wax waste from a candle manufacturing factory.
- Hotmax are made from the waste fines (bark and wood) left over from the manufacture of horse bedding shavings.
- RUF Oak is a clean dense square briquette made from pure oak sawdust from a furniture factory.
- Eco Nestro is a solid briquette made from softwood forest thinnings.
- Blazers are made in Wales from softwood forest thinnings.
- Envirobrick are made in Ohio from mixed hardwood shavings generated as a by-product from the manufacturer of stairs, panels, doors and many other timber products.
- Beech Nestro are made from fine ground pure beech sawdust generated as a by-product from furniture, floor and house frame manufacture.
- Dr. Heat Firelighters light easily and burn for about ten minutes, easily setting light to any good dry kindling. We like the fact they are a UK product and a highly effective, easy to use lighter.
- Hotmax can be used as a kindling to light or revive any fire. Being quite small they also make an ideal main fuel for small stoves under 5kw. They can be variable in density with the harder denser briquettes being best for using as a main fuel whilst the softer lighter ones are best for use as a kindling.
- RUF Oak are best used as a ‘heat sink’ in the back of your fire where they will cook away for four or five hours. I use two or three, depending on stove size, stood on their long edge in an open ‘V’ with a good firelighter in the centre of the ‘V’ and a pickle of kindling (Hotmax or Cut Pini-kay) in the centre. Place half of any other main fuel briquette across the top and you will maximise heat output and fire longevity together with minimising cost per kWh generated.
- Eco Nestro are a solid briquette without a hole making them suitable as a main fuel for larger fires. They do expand when burning, so best cracked in half before test burning them. Do not overload your firebox.
- Blazers are another UK briquette made in Wales from softwood forest thinnings. They are very dense with a hole down the centre to aid combustion. They can easily be broken in half and used as a main fuel on any stove from about 4kw upwards. Their claim to fame is that they are used to power the steamboat on Coniston Water in the Lake District.
- Envirobrick are the highest quality oblong sharped briquette we have found. They are so dense you will not be able to break in half, so not best for a small stove (use RUF Oak instead). For a large stove where you need a long slow tick-over briquette, these are great. Don’t expect the wonderful flame you will get from the likes of Beech Nestro or Energo Top, but they will create a good ‘heat sink’ for you and generate low heat for many hours.
- Beech Nestro are acclaimed by many to be the best briquette in Europe. They are made from pure beech hardwood ground to a fine particle size and densely compacted into 4 x 2.5kg briquettes per 10kg pack. They are exceptionally clean to handle, even when broken, making them popular with asthma sufferers. Burnt whole or cracked into smaller sections they generate a good flame and burn for several hours with a lovely hot glow. Truly the best main fuel briquette you will ever experience.
This mix is ideal for medium to large stoves, which can be greedy to feed. The main fuels are large enough to fill a big stove and give good long-burning times, but the Blazers are also a very flexible briquette that can be used to light or in large sections for longer 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.

All these briquettes come in a plastic outer. Please check with your local authority for recycling facilities.
The briquetting industry uses plastic to wrap wood briquettes in order to ensure they stay dry, as damp briquettes break up and are 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.
