The Marabu wood that grows in Cuba is seen there as a kind of weed. The tree multiplies quickly and makes native crops disappear, making it necessary to cut down this tree to give native plants and trees room to develop.
Charcoal of the wood type marabu has a calorific value of 7000 Kca/kg. The product looks completely different from other charcoal types because the marabu is a kind of shrub. So the shape of the charcoal will be long and round. (stick-shaped)
Black Ranch marabu contains about 6.7% moisture and so will ignite with very little smoke.
Compared to Black Ranch quebracho, there will be slightly more ash because the production process in Cuba is not as advanced as in South America. The ash content after combustion is approx. 6%.
We recommend Black Ranch Marabu for all grilling, but especially for use in the kamados or in an open grill, this is an extremely good product because it has a long burning time and a very neutral smell and taste.
Because the product hardly splashes, this ensures pleasant user experiences. Black Ranch Marabu is also suitable for smaller barbecues due to the smaller selection of charcoal.
