I've found that it gets to temp faster but I don't think hotter.

I haven't come out of the closet. ... but I'm fumbling with the doorknob.
Not to get technical, but according to chemistry alcohol is a solution...

I wouldn't say our charcoal necessarily "burns hotter" than anyone else's........it's just consistently a higher carbon content. This allows it to get to temperature faster and be more responsive to O2 changes. Something that has a bunch of wood fiber in it, still burns from the outside in and cannot reach those high temps until the wood burns out of it. Not sure if that makes sense.
The only downside (from a marketing aspect), is that because of the higher carbon content, the charcoal very brittle--it breaks down in to smaller chunks during bagging, palletizing, shipping, stocking, etc. But it still burns the same as the big chunks, but we still field complaints.
