Briquettes – How to Correctly Store Them
Have you wondered how to store briquettes correctly? There are a couple of reasons why Heat Beads won’t work properly, and moisture is a big one. The other one is that you are not letting them get fully hot before using them.
It’s important to make sure you store your Heat Beads correctly so that you don’t have problems with them when you go to use them next.
Once they get a bit wet (say over 10% moisture), then lighting them and getting them hot will become really difficult.
How to correctly store your briquettes:
When you buy your briquettes, it is recommended you store them in the unopened in a cool, dry place.
Once they are opened, keeping them in a sealed container like a bucket will help prevent moisture as long as they are stored in a cool, dry place.
Get a suitable container with a tight fitting lid, I’m using a 15-litre bucket from Supercheap Auto. For your reference, a 15-litre bucket will hold just over two 10kg bags of Heat Beads.
