NUGGET BRIQUETTES are produced from recycled English Woodland oak sawdust which comes from local saw mills around the UK. The nuggets burn efficiently, have a higher heat output, low carbon foortprint and are a very cost effective and clean effective alternative to using kiln dried or seasoned logs.

As for the comparison between the seasoned logs and briquettes, here are a few things that set them apart.

- Briquettes burn cleaner with a high heat output, are cheaper and easier to store and handle.

- The burning capacity and heat output of the wooden logs is comparatively less because  the moisture content of briquettes can be as low as 10% while the moisture content of the seasoned logs can be +/- 22%. Evidently briquettes burn quicker and provide a better heat output and burn cleaner and emission free too.

- The time taken by the briquettes to heat up is also shorter as compared to the seasoned logs.

- The residue left behind is also comparatively less.
