I'm gonna say ... seasoned hardwood. Take your pick.
Check the sticky at the top of this section.
The bag of lump charcoal should state what wood it's made of. Maybe not. Confused

I have never made lump charcoal,
but, the following thread has interested me since first reading it.
It's just a real bugger trying to find a 30 gallon drum up here in Canada. Crying or Very sad

Hi Mark.

My reason for asking what the best wood for making charcoal is: I'm getting ready for the smoker I am going to get.

I plan on looking into the guys who make charcoal in my area and see what they use.
When I find someone using the best wood/charcoal with a great reputation, I will make an offer on a large load and store it in my barn in large containers and bring a usable supply to my house/deck for use in BBQ'ing when I need it.

And besides, it doesn't spoil

Sounds good, Changeling!
With all the info you have gathered in the past 6 months,
I expect you should smoke/grill/cook like a champ when you get your cooker. Very Happy Wink

Hell Fire Grill put together a nice thread regarding lump charcoal.
Lots of great information. If you're interested.

Thanks for the link Mark, yes I have gotten a lot of great information here on the forum. I print out everything I believe I will need and will eventually make a "Smoke Ring BBQ manual" that I can refer to.

Some of the guys have given me recipies that I already use in the kitchen.
