Charcoal is a created through a slow burning process called pyrolysis, where wood is burnt in a low oxygen environment. Without oxygen the wood doesn’t actually burn and instead everything in wood is removed except the carbon. Leaving a black, carbon rich, lightweight, piece of fuel ready to cook with. Once up to temperature charcoal will turn white meaning it is ready to cook with., so make sure you have the grill, burgers, sausages and kebabs to hand ready to cook up a storm.
Charcoal is essentially carbonized wood, that is wood that is free of most of the components that do not contribute to a better burn. This is achieved by 'pyrolysis', put simply this is burning wood in a very low oxygen environment, permitting the removal of almost everything except carbon itself.
The resultant charcoal is incredibly carbon rich, and ready to burn. We have all seen the distinctive white glow of charcoal, this indicates the charcoal is a high enough temperature to cook with. So whip out the buns and the baps, and chuck in a sausage for good measure - now you're cooking!
We also offer a selection of charcoal barbecues, perfect if you are looking to bring the kitchen outside and into the garden. The smoky taste, the novelty aprons, the unmistakable scent of summer; these are the hallmarks of a charcoal barbecue, the original outdoor oven. This selection of charcoal barbecues puts you in the driving seat, replete with latest technology for precise temperature control and high end cooking. Choose between stone, cast-iron and stainless steel models from some of the world's leading designers.

Your garden will quickly become the place to be, a fresco kitchen and you're the head chef (just don't let the power go to your head). Entertaining guests has never been easier, or more enjoyable, your summers will never be the same again.
