Ben Short, Sustainable Charcoal

Ben Short, Sustainable Charcoal



Inside each bag you will find charcoal made from a mixture of species, most typically: oak, ash, hazel, beech, maple and thorn. This blend heats fast and is ready to cook on almost immediately. It also lights freely – a match and a few twists of newspaper are all you need.

Ben makes his charcoal in the spring and summer from wood cut two years previously. This allows the material to season, producing a better charcoal yield. Most of the wood he garners from hedge laying – small diameter material such as hazel and blackthorn. This is excellent as it carbonises whole and does not require splitting.

With so natural a provenance, it should come as no surprise nothing artificial lurks inside these bags.

This incredible charcoal is made by charcoal burner and woodsman, Ben Short. Ben swapped a busy life in London to relocate to West Dorset where he now lives and works in harmony with nature.
