100% Natural Wood Lump Charcoal

Our 40 lb bag of 100% All Natural Wood Lump Charcoal

Lump Charcoal is produced by placing wood in an airtight shed, igniting the wood and taking away the oxygen. The results after it burns down is 100% All Natural Wood Charcoal.


The leading manufacturer of briquets uses only 13% charcoal. The majority of their briquet composition consists of sawdust and chemicals.


For an All-Natural grilling experience without chemicals or additives, use 100% wood charcoal, and instead of lighter fluid, use a chimney or electric starter.
