Marabu charcoal: discover the perfect fuel for your Kamado
When using a barbecue, quality is essential, and so is the charcoal. Our selected charcoal, Marabu charcoal, is known as the best fuel for Kamados because of its purity, efficiency and long-lasting burning power. Hailing from Africa, Marabu charcoal is made from the Marabu plant and guarantees an exceptional barbecue journey.
- The story behind Marabu charcoal
In the history of Cuba, which fell into an economic crisis after the removal of Soviet financial support, the Marabu plant was given free rein to grow en masse. This plant, with its aggressive growth, has played a vital role in charcoal production. Marabu charcoal is characterised by its almost pure charcoal content, resulting in a smokeless and odourless fuel with a longer lifespan.
- Marabu charcoal: quality and environmental friendliness
The distinction between Marabu and 'standard' charcoal is clear. Whereas cheaper charcoal may still contain volatile substances that are sometimes released during combustion, Marabu is smokeless and odourless. In addition, Marabu lasts on average three times longer than standard charcoal, thanks to its higher carbon percentage and fire value. Moreover, Marabu charcoal is healthier as it does not contain any liquids that can be absorbed into food during combustion.
Although Marabu charcoal is more compact and contains no liquids for easy ignition, lighting it requires some patience. Once ignited, Marabu charcoal burns for hours, making it ideal for long BBQ sessions, whether on open or closed barbecues. To keep it completely natural, we at BBQ Flavour offer special lighter cubes, with no toxins, that have a burn time of 8 to 10 minutes.
- Why natural charcoal is important for your Kamado
A Kamado is sealed airtight, which is why using natural products is crucial. When using synthetic firelighters or briquettes, unwanted flavours and odours can get into your food. Therefore, we always recommend using 100% natural charcoal for the best results. Pay attention to the density of the charcoal blocks and their size, as higher density ensures a longer burn time and a higher achievable temperature in the Kamado.
- The difference between Kamado charcoal and standard varieties
Charcoal available in supermarkets or DIY stores is usually made from lighter tree species and is not suitable for use in a Kamado because of its lower burning power and less controlled origin.
By investing in high-quality, natural charcoal like Marabu, you will get the best out of your Kamado. A crucial step for the most flavourful barbecue experience.
