I was wondering if you knew anything about cooking over Lignite/Brown Coal? Not CHARcoal. :lol:
I used to burn it in my woodstove when I lived down east, it took up less room then wood and didn't harbor a lot of critters and you don't have to cut it. ;) It takes a little more to light but burns great with no smoke. It seamed like it was one step removed from charcoal.
