Saffire’s mesquite lump charcoal is 100% natural and made without additives, like coal, etc. Not only is the flavor great for grilling, it will burn longer than a similar volume of most other brands, which is especially good when roasting or slow smoking for several hours.
These natural chunks of wood light much easier than charcoal briquettes. Just use a small grill-safe fire-starter square or an electric charcoal starter. Start time is only 10 minutes for low temperature smoking and 15 to 20 minutes for High temperature grilling.
