Most Australians are familiar with charcoal briquettes that are made from compressed blocks of coal dust or charcoal saw dust. Briquettes contain chemical additives to help them light and remain alight, so they often produce unpleasant odours and tastes.
Lump charcoal on the other hand, is simply carbonised wood, a by-product of burning wood in the absence of oxygen. Lump charcoal lights faster, burns hotter and leaves very little ash compared to briquettes.
