Have you wondered how to correctly store briquettes? 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 correctly store briquettes 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

Purchase a Bucket

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.

Put Briquetts into Bucket

Poor the Briquettes into your bucket, and seal the lid.

Tip: keeping them in a sealed container like a bucket will help prevent moisture as long as they are stored in a cool, dry place.
