Where to Buy Smokeless Charcoal for BBQ?

Are you tired of battling billows of smoke every time you light up the grill? Whether you're a chalet warrior, East Coast Park pit master, condo cookout champion or a restaurant BBQ boss, this little secret is the key to a smokeless and stress-free grilling experience.

What is smokeless charcoal, you ask?

Introducing smokeless charcoal, a game-changer that lights up with a clean burn instead of emitting excessive dirty smoke or odor that taints the air and food while the charcoal is igniting.

Why do I need smokeless charcoal?

In cozy little Singapore where we love to cook up a storm in close quarters, being able to light up charcoal without a noxious cloud of smoke is quite literally, a breath of fresh air!
It makes the cooking experience less stressful, and let’s face it, who likes clouds of dirty smoke or funky smells that stick to your clothes and food?

But will my food lack that wonderful smoky flavour?

No, the putrid smoke emitted when igniting traditional charcoal is very different from the glorious aromatic smoke that infuses food during grilling - or the burst of smoky goodness when the fat drippings from your chicken wings or beef ribs hit the BBQ, sizzle and rise up.

With smokeless charcoal, you’ll eliminate the bad smoke, and keep the good!

I bought smokeless charcoal - but it still gave off lots of smoke!

Smokeless charcoal should not give off plumes of bad smoke during ignition, as long as you fired it up right. But, if you're using fire starters and accidentally crushed them with the charcoal, you might raise a smoke signal! To avoid that, make sure you stack the charcoal in such a way that the starters and charcoal get enough air around each piece to burn, just like in science class where we learned that fire needs oxygen.

But, hold up. What if the charcoal wholesale you bought wasn't as smokeless as advertised? Stay tuned to find out!

Where do I buy smokeless charcoal in Singapore?

While smokeless charcoal can be easily found locally, it's important to be discerning when selecting a product. Don't just grab the first box you see with the "smokeless" label. Due to the absence of regulatory labeling guidelines, sellers may market and sell charcoal as smokeless even if it's not.

Holy smokes! Scouring Singapore's biggest supermarkets like FairPrice, Giant, and Cold Storage, we were struck with a concerning realization: smokeless charcoal was nowhere to be found! We tested every type of charcoal available (at the time of writing) but they all seemed to be a bit too smoky for our liking.
