Royal Oak Briquettes?

My DH asked whether there was any filler in these things, since he wasn't sure how they could form them into briquettes without something added. Since they say 100% natural wood, I'd think not, but then how do they do it?

    natural corn starch is used as a binder

    So he was right. Wonder why it doesn't say that anywhere - or nowhere I saw with a quick look. What if you're allergic to corn?

    its a very small percentage and thats the only ingredient other than hardwood

    Unless you eat the briquettes :S there wouldn't be too much of a problem.

    Good point. I don't think that's on the menu.
