Lumpwood is made from 100% totally natural wood that has been burned down to charcoal. It is generally the chefs choice for cooking as it offers a totally natural cook with high intense heat. The pieces of our charcoals range from 3cm -20cm in the bag to allow for the home BBQ to the professional kitchens. The species used are generally dense hardwoods to ensure the best quality of lumpwood with a longer burn and more intense heat. We offer our lumpwood in 10kg & 5kg bags.
Briquettes our compressed from natural wood and binding agents to give a steady and consistent cooking heat. Our briquettes are very good quality and will last between 180-210 minutes. Briquettes offer a more consistent heat making it easier to cook over and as they last for so long they are used both for the home BBQ and the professional kitchens. We offer our briquettes in 10kg & 5kg bags.
Our BBQ cooking wood chunks are meant to be used for cooking over. They can be used in conjunction with charcoals or on their own. Barbecues using wood have been popular for many years in Mediterranean & African regions where they proclaim the added benefits and flavours of cooking over natural wood. We offer White Oak, Alder & Olive wood as our cooking woods due to the density and flavours of these woods. Our cooking woods are cut to smaller chunks like coals, but equally you could purchase certain firewood logs to cook over also, if your fire-pit, bowl or BBQ is big enough. Our smoking wood chips are ideal for flavouring your food, experiment with our range of smoking wood chips and find your favourite!
Our smoking chips are the last piece in the BBQ puzzle as they should be used over charcoals or cooking woods. These can be soaked and they sprinkled over the coals or woods, or even better put in our smoking box and placed directly on the coals or woods. The chips will crate instant smoke for your food, and with the different flavours of chips this will give a distinct smoky flavour to your foods.
What better way is there to spend your evenings surrounded by family, friends and neighbours than with a few drinks and a delicious feast of grilled meats and vegetables?
Food brings people together and cooking with a BBQ gets us feeling back in touch with nature. Whether you’re a fan of gas cooking or prefer to go back to basics with charcoal, we’ve got just the thing to make your BBQ the star of the show.
Here at The Green Olive Firewood Co we believe in supplying only the highest quality of wood to our customers to ensure you receive the best results possible. Our Natural Alder Wood BBQ Grill Planks are ideal for creating mouth-watering, smoke infused food that will wow your guests and have them coming back for more. Generally used to smoke consumables such as coffee and salmon, Alder generates a high-quality charcoal making it the perfect tool for outdoor cooking. The alder tree is native to most of Europe and Northern Africa but has been known to grow globally - hence it being one of the most popular choices for smoking food.
Suitable for both gas and charcoal BBQs, these planks are simple and easy to use. They have the ability to liven up your food and take your grilled dishes to the next level.
To use Alder wood planks on your BBQ:
- Soak the plank in water for at least an hour before use
- After preparing your meat, fish or vegetables simply place your food straight onto the plank
- Simply place the plank directly onto your BBQ and cook the food over the heat (take care when turning your food during cooking)
And voila! Beautifully tender and scrumptious food that you'll be proud to serve to your guests. Our 3-pack will see you through a few family gatherings.
