What is the difference between lump charcoal and briquettes?
Briquettes are made from sawdust and leftover woods that are burnt down the same way as lump charcoal. Unlike lump charcoal, additives are in the process of making briquettes, unlike lump charcoal which is pure wood. Although briquettes burn longer, they do not burn as hot as lump charcoal.
