Sustainable Braai Briquettes

July 14, 2019

Be the first to try our latest product; easy light, long lasting BBQ or for our South African market, Braai, briquettes. These nifty little coals eliminate the need for a firelighter, and they are grill ready in just 10 minutes!


Why Braai Charcoal Briquettes? Quite simply we solved an issue that the men in our lives face too often. Sunday afternoon, standing around the grill, a few beers down.... when a voice calls over "Honey are the steaks ready, the children are getting hungry". A mild look of panic as the charcoal in the grill is barely lit yet alone "grill ready". Another 30, 45, 60 minutes happen and the relaxed afternoon braai has morphed into screaming hungry children and unhappy ladies.


So we came up with a solution. We designed our charcoal briquettes so that they not only consist of a high grade charcoal, ground down and then recompressed at high density to create a product that burns for an extended period, but that is also easy light.


No more using a firelighter just to get your coals alight and burning. Our specialized charcoal briquettes are easy light, and they stay lit.


No more waiting for hours for those coals to be ready. Our specialized charcoal briquettes are ready in just 10 minutes. 



Quite simply, we've created the perfect product to take the waiting and hassle out of Braai-ing. So you can sit back, open another beer, and relax with the boys, knowing that those steaks will be ready just as soon as you need them.




These Braai Charcoal Briquettes are produced right here on our Kowie Bamboo Farm, in South Africa's Eastern Cape. Contact us for wholesale delivery.
