Barbeque lovers know that lighting traditional lumpwood charcoal and charcoal briquettes is not always easy. The SIDERIS company, with more than 40 years of experience in the field of solid fuels, suggests the ideal ways to light your coals and briquettes with ease and safety above all.
First of all, the difference between traditional lumpwood charcoal and sawdust charcoal briquettes lies in the fact that the briquettes require a little more waiting time until they light up properly, while also lasting more than traditional lumpwood charcoal.


Our RED EVOLUTION briquettes consist of 100% pure, compressed sawdust, which makes them more compact than charcoal. Thus, their calorific value is very high and they allow reliable, high-heat grilling for more than 5 hours.


In addition, they do not emit odors, and are free of additives or chemicals, making them a safe, tested and certified product that is trusted by the most demanding grillers.

The most ideal way to light them up is the following: In a lighting chimney, first place 2-3 pieces of firelighter (solid firelighters in cubes, gel firelighter etc.), light them and place the traditional lumpwood charcoal over it. Wait until the charcoal ignites and place RED EVOLUTION briquettes on top. When the briquettes are red, spread them out evenly on the grill and as soon as a light layer of ash is created, you are ready to grill!
For easy lighting of SIDERIS traditional lumpwood charcoal, first place a few pieces of charcoal on your grill. Place the ignition chimney on top, then add 2-3 pieces of firestarter, then fill with charcoal up to the top of the chimney and and light your fire. When the charcoal becomes red, remove the chimney and spread the charcoal on your grill. Let a light layer of ash form and you are all set to start grilling! Bon appetit!
PRECAUTIONS: Traditional lumpwood charcoal, as well as charcoal briquettes and related products should always be kept out of the reach and sight of children.

Always supervise your fire and have a sufficient amount of water and sand near you. Indoor combustion of charcoal products can cause death, due to the emission of carbon monoxide, which is odorless.
