Lighting Instructions 


To ignite insert a few Olive Briq Briquettes into a Charcoal Chimney or use Electronic Charcoal Starter when they reach a light greyish colour carefully place at the bottom of your BBQ surface and apply more Olive Briq as required. Once the added briquettes also reach a light greyish colour, you are ready to cook.


I started using Olive Briq in my Big Green Egg last summer and immediately fell in love with the product.   Imagine a charcoal that imparts great flavor, burns longer, cleaner, hotter (or slower) and comes from a sustainable source!


I particularly like to cook meats “low & slow” and Olive Briq makes that easy, just set things up before turning in for the night and you wake up to perfect Pulled Pork or Beef Brisket every time.

I've used Olive Briq, and they are wonderful. First cook was a high heat steak sear, the briquettes temperature clocked in at 953 degrees Fahrenheit  ( 512 C )


Last night I did a meatloaf, the temp was stable for the whole duration, about 2 hours. An hour in, I put a surface thermometer on the cooking grate over the coals, 560 degrees Fahrenheit ( 293 C ) 


Truly impressive ! Keep producing your excellent product.
