The Perfect Coal for Christmas

The Perfect Coal for Christmas

Posted on 10 Dec 2018 By Coal Hut

It’s the most wonderful time of the year and, for a limited time only, Coal Hut are applying festive discounts on each of our amazing coal products. Now, we know what you’re thinking: “How am I ever going to choose from Coal Hut’s seemingly endless list of coals?” Well, in this post, we’re going to compare a list of contenders for the perfect coal for Christmas, helping you make the right choice.

Before we begin, let us first take a look at Coal Hut’s Christmas deal that is sure to make spirits bright. Until Friday 14 December, Coal Hut are offering £10 off all 40 bags of coal when you enter ‘COAL40’ at checkout. Don’t get your tinsel in a tangle with rising fuel costs, instead, save money on high-quality coal at!

Ok, with that out of the way, let’s take a look at some coals, shall we? The products to be reviewed in this post are as follows: Five Star Coal, Singles, Surelite and Wonderco Smokeless Fuel.

Let’s begin with Five Star Coal. Living up to its name, this premier grade house coal is favoured by those who long for a traditional roaring fire. In our heat output and fire life ratings, this coal performs adequately, achieving an above average score in both domains. And what’s more, this cheap house coal won’t break the bank, either.

Next, our Singles coal will be reviewed. The perfect choice for small and medium open fires and pot-belly stoves, this coal can be paired with other fuels to extend burn time, tame a roaring fire and maintain heat. Singles coal achieved a good fire life rating from us, however, its heat output left a little to be desired.

Thanks to its sleek ovoid shape, Surelite sits neatly in the grate of any fireplace or multi-fuel stove. Perfect in terms of burn time and with above average heat output, this coal really is the perfect all-rounder. In addition, Surelite burns to a fine, easy to clean, tight ash. It is, however, one of the more expensive coals on our list.

Finally, let’s investigate the only smokeless fuel on our list. Wonderco smokeless coal is a petroleum coke product suitable for use in smoke control areas. Want to heat your home fast? This is the smokeless fuel for you. It produces flaming fire-bed temperatures and we therefore recommend blending it with other ash bearing fuels, such as our kiln dried logs.

But, what coal wins the title of the perfect coal for Christmas? For us, it’s Five Star Coal - a cost-effective fuel that performs well in every domain. Five Star Coal really does give you a good burn for your buck!

Maybe Five Star Coal isn’t the perfect coal to suit your requirements - that’s ok! At, we have a range of fuels for open fires besides those mentioned in this post. Have a look through and choose your perfect Christmas coal, today. And remember, enter code ‘COAL40’ at checkout to get £10 off all 40 bags of coal. Merry Christmas!
