Since we live in an apartment and don't have any covering outside, would it be safe to keep a bag of kingsford in the closet until ready to use. Just want to make sure there's nothing that would make us sick or anything. Thanks

It will be fine. I have 260lbs in my finished basement as i type this. Also 10 lbs in my kitchen.

Yes - even if it is matchlight their is no problems, however I wouldn't suggest storing it next to the baby crib or a fireplace :)
The only thing I would worry about is if it is stored for a while it might collect the humidity in the air and decrease its effectiveness. To combat that you could always seal it in a plastic trash bag.

The only danger is if you light it on fire.

I've got 300 pounds of KBB in my basement along with 100 pounds of lump. 200 pounds of Stubbs and another 300 of KBB in the crawl space. If charcoal in the house was bad for you I would have been gone long ago. :biggrin1:

When I read the title of your post I thought you would be asking if it's ok to cook on charcoal inside, and was expecting to see replys like "sure if you want to die". I'm glad that wasn't the case. Since you live in GA I would imagine your apartment is air conditioned, air conditioners tend to de-humidify air so you shouldn't have issues with the charcoal picking up humidity. In fact, I find that when I buy kiln dried bagged wood from a store that keeps it inside, like Academy, I find it much dryer and quicker lighting than when I buy it from a store that has it stacked on their patio.

The thread title made me think of that thread a while back where that brilliant woman tried to smoke a brisket in her bathtub......

That's almost as bad as the project that Walter White and Jesse tried to do in the bathtub early on in Breaking Bad.
