Tips On How Best To Use Night Briquettes

Night Briquettes are an excellent way to keep your home warm through the winter months.

Whether you have a traditional fireplace, a log burner, a chiminea or a wood-burning stove, briquettes can provide long-lasting heat in an environmentally friendly way, but what is the best way to use them?

Here we have a closer look at the frequently asked questions and provide some useful tips on Lekto Night Briquettes


How many Night Briquettes should I put in my log burning stove?

For the longest burning time, we recommend placing 2-3 night burning briquettes on your fire, just as the flames from your heat logs are going out. However, it does depend on the size of your appliance. This is specifically important if you’re looking to keep the fire going overnight.


Do I have to spend all night tending to my Night Briquettes?

That’s the beauty of Lekto’s night burning briquettes. All you have to do is place them in a pre-heated stove – due to their extremely high density and the nature of natural bark, it’s not so easy to light them on their own.

Before they are lit, leave the air intake open and, once they are alight, create a minimal airflow into the stove. This will allow a longer burn time, meaning you can sleep easy, knowing your home is safe and sufficiently warm.


Will I have to use any other heat fuel to get my Night Briquettes alight?

As our all-night briquettes are not as easy to light as our Heat Logs or Firelighters, we would suggest using one of these items to start your fire – our briquettes are the perfect compliment to Hardwood Heat Logs. In fact, if you are planning on using the briquettes overnight, you can use the dying embers of a heat log to light them.

A pre-heated stove can be greatly beneficial, as the chances of its interior turning black during use will be greatly reduced.


I have followed all instructions and I still cannot achieve a good burning time. What can I do?

If this is the case, we recommend that you add another briquette to the fire.

Before use, your briquettes should be stored in a dry place, so that they will burn more effectively. During use, we strongly suggest you do not move or try to rearrange the briquettes once they are on the wood burner.


Made from softwood bark that has been sourced from sustainable forests, Lekto Night Briquettes are designed for a slow, long burn that can last up to 8 hours and are perfect for wood burning and multi-fuel stoves.
