Sawdust Briquettes, Sometimes referred to as Japanese Charcoal
Comprised of 100% pure sawdust compressed into briquettes. This form of charcoal is ideal for most industrial kitchens. A high-quality sawdust briquette will have a low ash content similar to that of hardwood lump, but its high calorific value allows for intense heat. Due to the process in which it is made, sawdust briquettes have no smoke and sparks, generally the two most irritable parts for chefs, especially when grilling in small spaces. Depending on the quality of the briquettes there should be no smells. High-quality manufacturers stay away from the addition of chemicals to speed up the ignition phase. Furthermore, Sawdust briquettes allow for a much longer burn time, lower quality products pushing the 5-hour mark and the higher quality brands like Bravo BBQ charcoal, pushing the 7-hour mark. All these properties make sawdust briquettes the ideal choice for catering and restaurants, but can also be excellent for use at home for a long summers day BBQ. With sawdust briquettes as there is no smoke, we recommend adding a few smokey coals of wood chips to really get that BBQ flavour in the food, otherwise, it really does rely on the flavour of the ingredients.
