What kind of charcoal is the best for outdoor barbecue?

At present, the common barbecue fuels on the market can be divided into four categories: natural trees, log charcoal, machine-press charcoal briquettes, and wood pellets. These four types of fuels are very different in terms of composition, production method, burning time, and burning heat.

  • Among them, natural logs are suitable for barbecue dishes with special flavors, but the raw materials are scarce, the use environment is relatively limited, and they are smoky and prone to sparks.
  • logs after carbonized are easy to ignite, but the burning time is slightly shorter. Moreover, there are few log resources, which is not in line with the concept of environmental protection.
  • Machine-press charcoal briquettes are pressed from charcoal powder under high pressure. Therefore, they have high density, high calorific value and long burning time, which can meet the needs of roasting food. It is the most ideal fuel for barbecue at present, and it is very convenient for commercial and household use.
