Natural Lump Charcoal
Saffire’s lump charcoal is made with 100% natural hardwoods, including Mesquite, Oak and Hickory. It contains more dense hardwoods than most others, so it is not only great for flavor, but will burn hotter and longer than a similar volume of other brands. That’s especially good when roasting or slow smoking for many hours.
Because the natural chunks (lumps) of charcoal are not compressed into briquettes, they light much easier. Only 10 minutes for low temperature smoking and 15 to 20 minutes for High temperature grilling. Most briquettes sold today contain up to 70% coal! Coal is a fossil fuel out of the ground. Good for heating and blacksmithing, but not the pleasing aroma of hardwood charcoal. The byproducts of coal burning will produce sulfuric acid in damp environments. The wood used in natural lump charcoal is also a renewable fuel source. Coal is not. Neither is Gas!
