Fuel Finder – Try our new feature


Feeling a bit overwhelmed with the choice? Try our new feature..

Wood fuel isn’t really a ‘one size fits all’ product. People all over the UK have so many different types, sizes and styles of fires and stoves.Our new feature makes sure that:

1: You get the best quality briquettes available

2: You get a fuel that’s right for your fire and your needs

3: You get the best performance and results that you’re happy with.

4: You get the right fuel at the right price

5: You go away a happy customer!

With years of experience in the industry, we are always working hard to source the very best quality fuels, at the best prices. Customer satisfaction matters to us. We will always do our best to help you find your perfect fuel.

I never know which one to go for……

When it comes to briquettes, it can be hard work to trawl through descriptions to find out what’s right for you.

We completely understand that. We do, however, want to continue to offer a large range, so that we can cater to everyone’s needs. That’s why we came up with the Fuel Finder feature. This simplifies the process for you, the customer, and helps you to find the most suitable fuel for your particular circumstances.

We’ve categorised fuels that are perfect for open fires, woodburners, large or small stoves and then split them up depending on your needs. We focused on the questions we get asked a lot and the things people look for in their fuels.

So, no more generic briquettes for you.

I’m new to Briquettes, will this new feature help me?..

Yes! That’s one of the reasons we created it. As well as helping our existing customers to navigate the range and narrow down their choices, it’s perfect for those who are new to briquettes.

We’d be really disappointed if someone had a bad experience simply because they had tried a product that wasn’t right for their needs. We want you to love briquettes as much as we do!

It’s also a brilliant way to discover new products and get some ideas and suggestions for fuels that you might not have tried before.

Don’t forget your Add-On products!…..

Quick guide to choosing the best Wood Fuel for your stove and lifestyle.

Wood Fuel Co-operative

*Break - We strongly recommend you break these briquettes in half (or less for very small stoves) because they do expand whilst burning and you don't want them to overfill the fire.
*Easy to light - We always use a Firelighter and Kindling Sticks to start our fires. Most briquettes are graded four stars to light because they are quite dense and require kindling.


  • All stove and flue combinations tend to have different burning characteristics. Fuel that works well in my stove may not work so well in your stove, and vice-versa.
  • Most modern stoves are more efficient than most older stoves, meaning a modern quality stove will burn fuel more economically and generate more heat over a longer period.
  • Always try to burn fuel with a 'lick of flame'. Smouldering fuel to try to extend burn time is bad for your stove, flue and the environment due to unburned particulate matter in the smoke.
  • Be prepared to break briquettes into smaller sections to fit into your stove comfortably. Many briquettes do expand whilst burning and you don't want them to expand onto the glass.
  • The chart above indicates which briquettes are easy to break. Some are small enough so they don't need breaking. This makes for a cleaner environment around your stove.
  • All briquettes, except Everyday Value and Hotmax, benefit hugely from using kindling to light them. I suggest five kindling sticks will be sufficient, meaning a net should last 30 days.
