Which briquette to choose?


Which briquettes is right for me? Customers often walk into our depot and are amazed at the number of different fuels on display, particularly briquettes. There may be up to a dozen different types at any one time.

Why so many? Because of their high performance, briquettes are rapidly taking over from traditional logs as the preferred fuel of many people. They are cheaper and more eco-friendly than coal, hotter than logs and on average deliver, weight for weight, more kWh than other fuels.

Stove manufacturers recommend them because, with their low moisture content, they cause far less tarring up of flues, and also far fewer chimney fires.

As you can see from the image here, briquettes come in a variety of shapes, colours and sizes. At the Wood Fuel Co-operative we have the briquettes laid out in categories: ranging from those most suitable for fire lighting or reviving your stove, through shorter, medium and longer burning fuels, to those recommended for keeping your stove in overnight.

Every stove is unique and often it is a case of trying out a few different types to discover which briquette works best for you. If you’re local to Dumfries it’s well worth coming in and asking one of us to talk you through the fuels to help you choose.

Still not sure which briquette is right for you?
