Mesquite Charcoal production

Charcoal Production
Mesquite charcoal is currently being produced in a series of dirt based underground kilns, each with capacity for 5 cubic meters of wood yielding an average of 1.1 metric tons of charcoal per load.

The entire process requires an average of 13 days, including:

1.0 days - Wood collection and hauling
0.5 days - Kiln loading
2.5 days - Kiln burning process
3.0 days - Kiln cooling process
0.5 days - Kiln unloading
0.5 days - Charcoal ventilation period
1.0 days - Charcoal selection and packaging
5.0 days - Packaged charcoal resting period

Mesquite charcoal is then shipped worldwide to clients in 10, 20 and 40 lb. bags in containers of 44,000 lb. Please use our Client P.O. Form to place your order or, if you are a new client, to request a quote.

Rancho Lobos is a founding member of the Asociación de Productores Forestales del Estado de Sonora, A.C.

Advantages of "lump" Charcoal

* Lump charcoal is an all-natural, 100 percent hardwood product with no additives.

* Natural charcoal heats faster than briquettes, so food can be cooked over natural charcoal within 5 to 7 minutes after lighting.

* Lump charcoal can be lit sans lighter fluid and with just a match and some newspaper which means no off-flavors.

* One pound of hardwood charcoal produces the equivalent heat of two pounds of briquette charcoal.

Process byproducts

Mesquite charcoal making generates several byproducts that can be marketed to improve the use of natural resources. The following is a list of some of the byproducts that we are currently marketing:
