When necessary, we may substitute products with equivalents. Substitutions will always be of equal or greater value, and be suitable for the purpose required.
RUF Oak are a dense RUF briquette made from oak sawdust.
Blazers are a very high quality softwood briquette
Pini-Kay are made from hardwoods
Extralong are made from washed bark and pine
Hotmax are made from the waste fines (bark and wood) left over from the manufacture of horse bedding shavings.
Dr Heat are made from miscanthus soaked in wax.
Hotmax are easy to light, producing a quick heat with an excellent flame. They make a great kindling, but also last several hours.
RUF Oak briquettes are a top of the range, extremely dense RUF block.
Blazers are long-burn briquettes with an excellent hot glow time. They need something like Hotmax to build a good hot base before placing one (or preferably just half of one) on top. This will produce a good flame and extend the life of the fire.
Pini-Kay are easy to crack into smaller sections, but are small enough (9″or 23cm long) to be used whole in most small stoves. They light easily and produce an excellent flame, but only for about 30/40 minutes or so, after which they settle down into a hot glowing ‘rod’ in the base of your fire. Baby Beech, which we may substitute for Pini-K at times, is a dense, hardwood briquette that gives a lovely flame and good burn time.
Extralong are specialist bark and pine logs, designed for overnight burning and for long, slow daytime burning. They produce more ash which helps keep the heat in the fire for longer.
Dr Heat are an excellent non-toxic lighter. They contain only miscanthus soaked in candle wax.
Everything you need to run even the greediest of stoves, using pure wood products. The combination of briquettes generates intense heat over several hours.
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.
