Lump charcoal and charcoal briquettes are both popular among grillers, but each offers distinct properties you should be aware of the next time you stroll down the fuel aisle at your local grocery store. Fortunately for you, Chef Tony has plenty of experience with both types and is your go-to when it comes to choosing charcoal. He here’s to run down the pros and cons of both lump and briquette, starting with how cleanly they burn. That’s only scratching the surface, though. You should also consider how fast they light, how quickly they burn, and how hot they burn, along with their composition, shape, and reusability. Once you’ve wrapped your head around the differences between briquettes and lump charcoal — gasp\! A mysterious third option appears\! We’ll leave that shocking revelation to Chef Tony, whose final piece of advice covers why it’s important to stay consistent with a single type and brand once you’re done choosing charcoal.
