Our markets

Located in Saint-Mathieu de Rioux, in the Bas-St-Laurent region of Quebec, Basques Hardwood Charcoal has been producing natural lump charcoal for over 35 years. Over the years, we’ve come to know the industry like the backs of our hands so that we can offer a high-quality, sought-after product, loved by chefs, grill masters and grill amateurs, as well as caterers in major North American markets, such as Boston, Toronto, New York, Hartford and Washington.

Our products are now distributed in Atlanta, Georgia and in southern Ontario, in Brantford and Windsor. They are now also available in the states of Washington, Oregon, Ohio, Michigan and Idaho and provinces of British-Colombia and Alberta, where sugar maple charcoal is an exotic, high-end and unique product.

Our Philosophy

Maintaining our high standard of consistency and quality isn’t inexpensive, but it’s the only way we know how! Our production is focused on customers who appreciate the difference between Basques Sugar Maple Charcoal and ordinary hardwood charcoal.

Our charcoal, the first to receive FSC® certification in North America, offers grill enthusiasts an incomparable flavour and an eco-friendly BBQ experience!

Faced with the increasing competition of large-scale charcoal producers using varied ingredients, production methods, content origin and quality standards to augment their market share, we chose to use a consistent material, and only ever use FSC®-certified sugar maple hardwood. Basques Hardwood Charcoal stands alone in being quality driven, not market driven.

Our team is quality driven, and this is reflected in our choice of transport suppliers. With our logistics partners, we can deliver charcoal and briquettes in no time, by the truck-load or in small quantities. We can deliver on time so that your client can enjoy their next grill event. Contact us if you want to know more about our loyal customers.

We receive many testimonials from happy customers and retailers who say there’s nothing better than Basques Hardwood Charcoal!
