If you are finding strange things like this in your charcoal...that you can see.
I wonder if there might be smaller things in there; that are to small to see,
and may be contaminating your food.
Just a thought.

Always is and always will be sadly.
I use lump for the most part and have found some nice prizes in there too but nothing like pictures some folks have posted pictures of.
Hey, I wanna see all those pictures again. :cool:

I had a patch of insulation (looked like a burnt up wig) fall out of a bag of R/O once. I posted the thread about it here, but from an other computer... Ended up being a well commented on thread, lots of folks had lots of similar experiences...

Can't remember the name so I'll have to go look at the bog. It's not any of the top name brands though.

Guys, that is specially engineered to keep the bqs from fallin thru the grates so they cook longer...

Guys,,My son used to work for a Tree Removal place in Florida, He worked in the yard where they ground up trees and branches into wood chips, these chips were then sold to Kingturd to be added to briquettes. he said that it was hard to pay attention to what went into the Big grinder besides trees...
