The Best Wood for Wood-Fired Cooking

The Best Wood for Wood-Fired Cooking

I've have been asked a few times what is the best wood for live fire cooking on an Argentinian Parrilla style Grill, so I thought it would be good to share my thoughts. 

The main thing is to make sure that you're using hardwood logs with low moisture content, keep away from softwoods or wet wood you won’t get the right heat. 

For a local supplier, the best way is to find a local pizza restaurant with a wood-burning oven and have chat with them, they will know the best local suppliers.

To get you start here are few great suppliers: 

Love Logs

If you’re looking for sustainable fuel then Heather and Paul at Love Logs are a great option. Love Logs stock a huge range of specialist fire cooking woods predominantly sourced in the UK, and ship in 100% plastic-free packaging.

Use discount code somerset15 at checkout for 15% off your first order. 

They offer an Asado Fuel Kit, which you can set up on subscription for regular deliveries.

Log Store Group 

For local wood I tend to use beech or ash from a local company called the Log Store Group who supply restaurants in the south west, they do a 12" ash pizza oven batons that burn really well and makes amazing embers.  

They delivery to post codes BH and DT postcodes as well as some BA, SP, TA and EX 

Check if they deliver in your area with the post code checker on there homepage.


London Log Co

Lord of logs at the heart of wood-fired cooking in London supplying most live fire cooking restaurants, London Log Co is a great option if you are London based.

For Charcoal there are many local suppliers all over the country who provided an amazing product below are a few companies we would recommend:
