Since I bought the fire pit, I was looking for different types of firewood to burn. My cousin who is an expert in grilling uses olive wood for BBQ. I was looking for different suppliers for wood in Kuwait and I was able to find a good one. Of course there are high quality firewood options at Ace Hardware, but it is pricey. I bought a decent type of firewood from Lulu Hypermarket, but it burnt really fast. I was looking for an option that doesn’t burn so fast and doesn’t take forever to burn. I found a supplier called Ministore_ws and they sell the following options
Olive Wood (2.5 KD per 10 KG)
Citrus Wood (4 KD per 10 KG)
Berry Wood (4 KD per 10 KG)
African Wood (2.5 KD per 10 KG)
There are other options such as Beech Wood, Oak Wood, Artificial Charcoal, and Natural Charcoal.
I contacted them on Whatsapp and bought Olive Wood & Berry Wood. They charge a 2 KD delivery charge and they delivered the same exact day. After testing both Olive Wood and Berry Wood, I really liked the Olive Wood, because it burns and stays for a good amount of time. The smoke smells nice as well, so smoking some lamb chops or tikka is great. I also used it to cook chestnut and it was perfect as well. My next experiment will be using a different fire starter. The fire starter cubes doesn’t work well all the time, so I am planing to try Looft Lighter.
