BURN HOTTER & CLEANER.
ECO BRIQUETTES AVAILABLE FOR SPRING 2023 – PERFECT FOR FIRE PITS.
PICK-UP ONLY FROM OUR SHOWROOM WEEKDAYS FROM 9AM – 3PM.
Against the Grain hydraulically compress our timber sawdust into sustainable briquettes for use as fuel in fireplace, wood stove or firepit.
Our briquettes are densely compacted and super-efficient, containing less than 12% moisture. Customers use less fuel to heat their homes and achieve a hotter fire with less ash or creosote build-up in the flue.
Regular firewood has a moisture content of up around 20-30%, moisture that reduces heat output while increasing smoke emissions and creosote build-up.
So give away the axe and reduce your carbon footprint – switch from firewood to our briquettes today.
Lignins – timber's organic polymer – provide all the bond required to form our sustainable briquette.
Additive and glue free, all you burn is pure hardwood sawdust.
60 x BRIQUETTES

AGAINST THE GRAIN
TURNING WASTE INTO WARMTH
A decade ago, Against the Grain invested in German machinery to transform the timber sawdust produced in our factory into highly efficient, clean burning cylindrical briquettes.
This was achieved through hydraulic compression alone... no glues, no additives, just pure sawdust.
The briquettes proved popular with Blue Mountains locals for use in wood burners, fireplaces and outdoor fire pits. Speaking with our regulars, we soon learnt of a multitude of alternative uses including compost, mulch, chicken coops, garden paths and more.
In 2017, Against the Grain teamed up with Cleanaway to successfully apply for a Bin Trim rebate through the Environmental Protection Authority. The rebate went a small way toward purchasing a more sophisticated machine capable of producing the larger, rectangular briquettes we offer today.
