Default can wet briquettes be saved?

I cooked burgers last night and like a genius, left 2/3 bag of kingsford on the porch. It rained a good bit today, and when i got back to the house and realized what i had done, the bag was wet. I have used lump after it has gotten wet (just waited a while to do so) but didn't know if this was worth hanging on to, or if it wouldn't burn the same now. Thanks for the help.

The ones in the bottom of the bag are likely toast, they have probably already turned to powder if you dump the bag out. If you can feel moisture on the charcoal when you handle it, the bag is ruint. I did the same thing last weekend (only rain we've had in 5 months!) and I saved about 2/3 of the bag.

In my experience, if charcoal has any appreciable moisture in it, it won't burn worth a flip.

I've burnt it before, but it may take some drying out. Might get some white smoke for a while. Charcoal is pretty cheap. You might not want to be bothered with it.

Not really, but I'm sure others will tell you it's OK.

Thanks guys. I'll throw it out in the morning. I still have a ton from those $6 off coupons back in 09. Which brings up another question, does charcoal go bad? I have it stacked on a pallet in my workshop.

If it's dry, it should be good to go!
