To start your fire we recommend following the steps below while keeping in mind that if the full log is too long 

for your indoor fireplace, stove or heater, that you break each log in half and continue to stack them step for step. 

This will allow you to use the logs at your own discretion.

Step 1 Draft

Step 1

Place 2 Eco Logs between 10-15cm apart from each other on a clean and stable surface. Place a firelighter in the middle of the logs. Light your firelighter.

Step 2 Draft

Step 2

Place 3 Eco Logs on top of the first layer with enough space between each log to allow for the flame to burn through.


Step 3 Draft

Step 3

Stack 1 more layer of logs as per Step 2, on top of the second layer to create a small tower.

Step 4 Draft

Step 4

Allow the Eco Logs to reduce to coals as you would using traditional wood or charcoal, and add half logs as needed.


Eco Logs are eco-friendy logs produced from the compressed grape seeds, a by-product of the cold-pressed method of extracting grapeseed oil for cooking and beauty applications.

No it is not charcoal or wood, but rather an eco-friendly alternative.

You can use any firelighter, however we have found that the Greenlight Firelighter (a paraffin free eco-firelighter works very well.

Eco Logs are ideal for both BBQ and heating. They also work well in pizza ovens, closed combustion heating systems and Weber-type kettles.

One Ecolog can hold coals for approximately 2 hours and longer. Just as Firewood, Charcoal and Peat, any juices from your meats, marinades or other fluids that drip onto the logs/coals will interfere with the coals heat and lifespan.

No – they are produced purely by compression of the remaining grape seeds after cold-pressing them to extract the grape seed oil.

Our Ecologs that are packaged in 5kg boxes, are equivalent to a single bag of traditional wood for BBQ purposes. Just as with wood or charcoal, you would need to determine how much to use depending on what you are BBQing and or Heating, how many guests you have and bearing in mind any wind conditions.

Instructions are provided on the back of the box, but you can also see them on our How To Section Above

Ecologs are 100% organic and must be stored in a dry place away from any moisture to prevent mould and crumbling of the logs. They are perfectly shaped, they may be easily packed and do not take a lot of space.
