A lot of lump charcoal is made from offcuts and waste pieces from other industries. Briquettes were invented to make money from a waste stream of wood at Ford, right? Both are saving something from a landfill. I guess the hardest thing is getting past the noxious gasses released during burning. Propane and Natural gas have dramatically less different types of chemicals in the exhaust than you get burning wood, but certainly don't taste as good.
But you have to cook beef. That way you can say that you are aiding in the termination of one steer's worth of methane releases...
