- Oct 9, 2009I can't remember or find where I read it, but I think I saw some doc mentioning that compressed peat brick "Bord na Mona" doesn't smoke like a cut peat turf. I had seen these guys, but shied away from them for that reason.From the BNM.ie website:Bord na Móna Peat Briquettes are made from 100% natural products with no additives or binders. They are produced using a complex and energy efficient process. Each briquette is a small block of highly compressed dry peat.Because Bord na Móna Peat Briquettes are much drier than turf they are easier to light. They produce more heat when burned and less smoke. Modern technology has been used to ensure consistency of product.

US Irish peat source...http: //www.irishpeat.. com/purchase. php I've never used them, but it's another option at 10 lbs for $30 shipped.

> Wal - I can tell you that the bale of peat I bought at my local (U.S.) Lowe's garden center, from Florida, sure didn't come out well as peatreek! I did find a source in Ireland that will ship here. I have ordered a few pounds of his hand-cut Irish turf (peat), I will let you folks know how that turns out. There's a guy in California that sells it, getting $125US for 25 pounds. That's a little too pricey for me just to experiment with. If my first attempt with a smaller quantity works out, I will order some from him and split it with anyone here on the list that wants some.
