Cooking with lump charcoal


Well-Known Member
I thought I would try some lump charcoal from Bunnings it is real charcoal in big pieces cooked my first thick cut Porterhouse last night I used mostly charcoal but some small pieces of old Redgum, great result as per pic Redgum adds taste.

Dessert it is easy to cook too.
Beautiful. Charcoal is the bomb for cooking all meat. I have a rotisserie that often has a good chunk of pork spinning on it with some good charcoal.

I've been doing similar, only sous vide then onto the charcoal (dry well after taking out of the bag).
Bunnings' lump charcoal works really well for Japanese on the Hibachi. Small enough to take on weekend trips, too.

Interesting. I have used charcoal in a BBQ before, but I never considered taking it camping. It would take up less space/weight than hardwood and still give a great cooking result although I do like my hardwood coals.
