Frequently Asked Questions:
What are Flaming Coals HotRods Charcoal Briquettes made of?
Flaming coals hotrods charcoal briquettes are made from bamboo. The process of making the charcoal briquette is as follows: The bamboo is ground down into a powder, from there it is put into a briquette manufacturing machine that dries the sawdust before it is compressed under extremely high pressure into a bamboo log. From there the bamboo log is placed in kilns and burnt for 1-2 weeks depending on the charcoal briquette grade required. All our Hotrod charcoal briquettes are "Japanese grade" so they are kept in the kiln for the longest time possible.
Are there any chemicals in the Flaming coals Hotrods?
No, The Flaming Coals briquettes do not have any accelerants, whiting agents or filler. They are 100% natural.
What is the best way to light the Hotrods?
Because the Flaming coals charcoal briquettes do not have any additives and are extremely high density, they tend to be a little harder to light. The best way to light briquettes is to place them upright in a chimney starter with 4 firelighters underneath. Leave them in there are until you are happy with how hot they have become. 20-30 is usually more than enough depending on how many you use.
How did you test the different charcoal briquettes?
The briquettes were tested using a "real use" test. What that means is we placed the same weight in briquettes to the side of a kettle bbq and had a temperature logger on the opposite side. Just like you would do if you were cooking a roast. For more information on the test, you can look at our Charcoal Briquettes comparison test
