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.

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.

I see nothing wrong with that..........the zip tie is there so you can attach the briquette to the coal grate!

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...

zip ties like that are common briquette "binders"
