Forno1889® Beechwood Pizza Briquettes

Crafted for professional wood-fired pizza ovens 🇮🇹

Forno1889® marries the sustainability of modern high-performance briquettes with the heritage of traditional Neapolitan pizza making.

As the story goes, on arriving in Naples, Queen Margherita of Savoy and King Umberto I invited Rafaele Esposito, Napoli’s most esteemed pizza maker, to prepare dinner. Describing the traditional garlic topping unfit for royalty, Esposito created a pizza topped simply with tomatoes, mozzarella, and basil—the Italian flag's red, white, and green. The year was 1889.

The consistency of the heat produced and the flames makes my job so much easier. Before I had to poke at the fire all the time to make sure I could keep the right temp, as some the timber wasn’t dry enough or the logs sizes were irregular.
I don’t have these issues anymore as soon as the temp starts dropping a little I throw in a new log and I'm good to go for 45min without having to worry about anything but the pizzas.
I've noticed as well that with a constant temperature my pizzas come out beautifully 100% of the time.
— Valerie Tirmant, The Fire Slice


Made from 100% virgin Beechwood, Forno1889® pizza briquettes are our food-grade cooking logs that will reach the required 500-degree Celsius temperature in Neapolitan-style oven whether cooking in a professional setting or at home. Due to the consistent burning, there has been a particular appeal from professional chefs who need reliable results every single time.

In our most recent DIN EN ISO/IEC 17025:2018 laboratory tests at AH Knight, which often are referred to as Chemical Analysis tests, the Forno1889® briquettes are shown to produce energy output with a gross calorific value of 5.37 kWh/kg. The moisture content ranges between 5.4 – 6.6%, with the ash content 0.5%.

By design, Forno1889® briquettes are octagonal in shape, and one can say they are custom-made for Neapolitan-style cooking where the fuel must be burned on the left side of the oven. The high and consistent temperatures will guarantee consistent and reliable results. This high performance also makes these briquettes suitable for stoves and fire pits, where a great flame and high heat output are important.

Each 15kg box measures 30cm x 24cm x 24cm and contains 9 octagonal briquettes, each measuring 24cm long and 8cm in diameter.

Packaged in a recyclable cardboard box, Forno1889® Briquettes are easy to handle and store. The box requires minimal but weatherproof storage for safe storage. Direct contact with water may result in the total loss of the briquettes or reduced or poor performance.
