Brand new in store – Weber Briquettes and Charcoal!

By March 27, 2018Uncategorized

At Drakes, we believe that it’s important to use the right tool for the right job – and our friends at Weber agree! That’s why they have developed two premium barbeque fuels to suit every style of barbeque cooking!


Weber Red Gum Charcoal is the perfect fuel for hot, fast cooking. It lights quickly and consistently in 10 to 15 minutes and burns hot. Weber Red Gum Charcoal is ideal for direct cooking (grilling) and suitable for indirect cooking (roasting) food for up to 1.5 hours. Because it’s all natural and lights easily, additional charcoal can be added to extend burn time at any stage.

Weber BBQ Briquettes are a char briquette fuel that is designed to burn long, hot and consistently. Weber BBQ Briquettes have been shaped to light faster than other char briquettes, without compromising on burn time. Because of their shape and grooved surfaces, Weber BBQ Briquettes are ready to use in approximately 25-30 minutes, but will still produce heat over 180 degrees for over three hours. Weber BBQ Briquettes are brilliant for indirect cooking like roasting and baking. As their performance is so consistent, they’re also the perfect fuel for long, low and slow cooking.

Weber BBQ Fuel is a perfect partner for our exclusive Slow BBQ Meat range, and is available in Drakes stores now!
