Benefits of using our products

Smoking with our wood briquette is not only an energy benefit. It is also a clean glass in your fireplace, even after repeated smoking. Make sure that the flame in your fireplace is visible through a clean glass! See the comparison below.

How to use our innovative Grill Chips

    1. GRILL CHIPS must be fired first. What does that mean? Place the plates in a stack and set them on fire, preferably using ECO-PAL ECOSTARTER (do not use liquid ones!!!).
    2. Wait until the flames disappear, even approx. 30 minutes and this time can be used to bake the sausages over the flame – like over a fire.
    3. After the flames disappear, gently spread the burnt GRILL CHIPSA on the bottom of the grill (as required).
    4. Place the food on the grill and start grilling the food.
    5. It’s important not to touch the heat too much while grilling.
    6. If flames appear during the barbecue, we can only spray them with water mist.
    7. If we want to add another portion of GRILL CHIPSA, we have to repeat everything from the beginning (points 1-4).

How to light up our ECOMAX wood briquette?

  1. You will need: ECOMAX, ECOMAX Premium or ECOMAX Profi wood briquette, ECO Lighter, ECO Starter and our long matches to light all up.
  2. Start by building a stack. Place 4 rollers on the bottom as shown in the picture.
  3. Place 2 more rollers on the base.
  4. Place our ECO Starter between the rollers.
  5. Place 2 ECO Starter slats on both sides of the ECO Starter.
  6. Then set the ECO Starter on fire and you’re done.

Currently top firing is the most effective method of smoking. Just put a portion of briquette into the fireplace and place the ECO kindling on it. The embers will move from the top to the bottom, so that the volatile substances do not escape with the smoke, but burn in the fireplace and translate into an increased amount of heat.

Few helpful tips on how to smoke in the fireplace and heaters with a briquette

Use top firing, the most effective method of smoking.

Just throw a portion of fuel into the boiler and place the kindling on top.

The heat is transferred from top to bottom, so that the volatile substances do not escape with the smoke, but burn in the furnace and translate into greater heat production.
