THE BENEFITS OF
COCONUT SHELL BBQ BRIQUETTES

   
 
   
  Our briquettes are high-density (compacted) with no chemicals. This gives a longer and more consistent burning time than traditional wood based charcoal. Consistent heat makes cooking more manageable and the food is grilled evenly – as well as being economical as you don’t have to replenish the BBQ with new coal during cooking.
   
   
  Furthermore, the burning is clean and leaves a minimum of ash residue (which by the way can be used as garden fertilizer) and this makes cleaning up a lot easier.
   
   
 

To guarantee the highest possible quality, safety and burning duration, we perform three types of tests for our products - three times every day:

The first is an analysis of the smoke, carbon, moisture, volatile matters and ash residues to ensure that the result is in compliance with standards as defined by EN-1860-2.

The second is the T-180 test and based on parameters set by the Danish FORCE Technology. It is a burning and heat test that has been devised to determine for how long the charcoal holds a constant temperature of +180° C, the optimal temperature for continuous cooking on the grill.

The third test is a ‘Self Heating’ test to ensure the briquettes cannot self-ignite, either during the shipping process, in retail warehouses, shops or at the homes of end consumers.

   
   

 

   
 

THE BENEFITS OF
COCONUT SHELL BBQ BRIQUETTES

   
   
 

FLAMOUS BBQ briquettes are of an extremely high quality and are 100% natural. We do not use any artificial chemicals or harmful additives in our briquettes.

The granulated charcoal is mixed with our all-natural tapioca starch to bind the charcoal briquettes - a 100% food grade product made from the plant Manihot Esculenta.

In other words, you can enjoy the food safely without the need for any health concerns - FLAMOUS is safe!

   
   
 

Not only is this good news for the environment, but it also ensures flame-, smoke- and odourless burning. The result is healthier, deliciously roasted and much better tasting food. Our briquettes are not only ECO-friendly, they are taste bud-friendly and help preserve the natural health benefits and flavours of the food.

Based on our high quality carbon granulate from carbonised coconut shells our BBQ briquettes offer a superior green alternative to regular wood charcoal and fossilised coal.

   
   

 

   
   
 

AS A MATTER OF FACT, USING COCONUT SHELLS
REDUCES THE OVERALL NEED FOR LOGGING

   
 

The use of coconut shells offers a sustainable, fully renewable and highly ECO-friendly alternative to regular wood charcoal and fossilized coal as it is a reclaimed product from the coconut production process.

Harvesting coconuts does in other words not put any strain on the environment – on the contrary it eliminates the need for the cutting down of trees to produce traditional charcoal. As such it is instrumental in improving the overall state of the environment.

   
 

100% FREE OF CHEMICALS

   
 

Once received at our factory the carbonised shells are pulverised into granulate and mixed with water and a specially formulated all-natural starch binder 100% free of any chemicals.

Aside from the obvious ECO-friendly aspects of this, it means that our briquettes actually result in cleaner barbecuing and better tasting food.

   
 

ADAM RETORT CARBONIZATION
AND TRANSFER OF KNOW-HOW

   
  FLAMOUS is involved in an ongoing program installing modern carbonization ovens (Adan Retort kilns) and educating the local farmers in their correct use. This ensures a uniform carbonization and a higher yield from the coconut shells, thus, allowing for a better price to the local farmers. Furthermore, being a closed system pollutants in the traditional way of carbonization is now avoided.
   
 

BSCI-CERTIFICATION

   
  Via our BSCI-certification we are deeply committed to our social responsibilities. We consider this a substantial win-win situation for both the local community and FLAMOUS’s suppliers.
   
   

 

   
   
  Coconut shells are arguably the best raw material for high quality briquettes. They burn hotter and longer which means that less briquettes are needed – that makes them both practical and economical to use. They produce less smoke which results in a cleaner, more natural taste, and furthermore, they are a reclaimed product both eliminating the need for the felling of trees for wood-­briquettes and creating a whole new ECO-friendly job market.
   

   
 

FLAMOUS briquettes are 100% natural with no chemicals added. This ensures a cleaner burning which again results in a more natural taste as well as healthier and ECO-friendly grilling.

   

   
 

FLAMOUS briquettes are based on the superior Adam Retort carbonization techno­logy. The advantage of this technology is its closed carbonization procedure burning all natural gasses fully without producing waste – neither smoke nor ash. The only output is water vapour. Furthermore, it is gives a higher yield meaning that we can pay the local farmers a higher price for the granulate used to make the FLAMOUS briquettes because more granulate is being produced from the same amount of shells.

We are committed to and known for producing and supplying coconut charcoal products of the highest quality. Furthermore, caring for environment, society, suppliers and employees is of the utmost importance to us. Maintaining a good working relationship with the local community in general and the coconut farmers who supply our raw material specifically is of the utmost importance to us.
