Cowboy CharcoalFor my family grilling just wouldn’t be grilling without the charcoal. Unfortunately, traditional charcoal isn’t that great for the earth. Luckily we can opt for eco-friendly charcoal.

Eco-friendly charcoal includes lump charcoal, which is made from charred wood that’s harvested from sustainably managed forests, & pillow-shaped briquettes made from scrap wood without coal dust or unhealthy additives.

Buying green charcoal means less deforestation, fewer greenhouse gas and soot emissions, & healthier barbecue eating!

    Another source of environmentally favorable charcoal is the wild cattails and reeds that clog the world’s waterways. Our cattail sloughs are a serious part of our dustbowl problem- they should be lakes. In Africa, the problem is even worse, and the potential charcoal market much larger. Charcoal making can be done low-tech, with a near zero start up cost; or hi-tech, with a higher efficiency of utilization. These plants are also good ethanol feedstock. These plants are dessication and siltation machines, so each acre you clear is an improvement in your water supply. If they didn’t have the habit of collecting pollutants, they would also be a ready solution to the world food shortage. With some work, they still could be.

    I was wondering how cooking with this charcoal is healthier. It specifically says in the description that this allows for healthier BBQing?
