  • Grown in Britain - always
  • One of our two native Maples in the UK
  • Once a staple of coppice woodland and found in hedgerows and field margins
  • A fairly dense charcoal that has plenty of cracking for air to penetrate
  • Lights very easily with little fuss
  • Loves to get hot but also great for low and slow due to its high density
  • 100% natural, burns cleanly with very little ash residue
  • Adds a very light sweetness to the cook – perfect for sticky Texan style barbecue
  • No chemicals, ever
  • Made from regeneratively harvested wood
  • Sustainably produced in the UK

*The purchase of each bag of British charcoal secures our forests, woodlands and the beasts that live within for future generations.  We do this together, one bag at a time.Unnecessary charcoal imports are damaging tropical ecosystems and polluting the planet, not to mention the humanitarian impacts in some territories.  We need to burn British!

  • Great with beef

  • Great with fish

  • Great with pork

  • Great with chicken

Field Maple charcoal is fairly dense, but will tend to be fissured along the grain. This gives it a burning habit of intense heat in an open grill, but will respond to control of airflow to moderate its ferocity.

Flavour Profile

Presents well for a sweeter, mild smoke addition to sauces and rubs for the traditional US style BBQ. Subtle though so works well with any cook where you are looking for a gentle, sweeter flavour – amazing for a roast chicken!

Origins & Production

Working from their yard in Cornbury Park, Oxfordshire they use trees felled as part of a whole-woodland management plan. Their focus is on regenerating biodiversity and vigorous healthy growth ensuring a future for these essential habitats.
