We recommend storing your briquettes indoors only.
Storing Your Briquettes – The Basics:
DO store your briquettes in:
- Watertight shed
- Dry garage
- Porch or conservatory
- Inside house
- Dry outbuildings
- Some plastic garden stores, as long as they are watertight
DO NOT store your briquettes in:
- Traditional log stores
- Uncovered, outdoor areas
- Buildings that are damp or have high humiditiy levels
Traditional log stores are open or vented. This is because logs require airflow around them to keep them dry. Briquettes are already dry so if they are exposed to moisture they will start to expand. This makes them useless for burning. Storing your briquettes the right way is really important.
A damp briquette will just turn back into sawdust!
