I am wondering if anyone knows where I can get Sugar Maple Lump Charcoal for smoking? Where I can pickup somewhere in Michigan? Any help would be great.


Thanks!

Make it.It's not hard to do.During the summer months I make my own charcoal.Get an open top drum,the type that the lid can be removed and replaced.Burn that sucker until there is no paint or other material left and then wire brush the heck out of it.Load it up with dry seasoned wood of your choice put the lid back on and remove the bung to vent off gasses.Build a very large and hot fire.Roll the drum into the fire.Keep the fire very hot until smoke no longer comes out of the vent.Roll it out of the fire and allow to cool off.Open drum the next day and you have charcoal.Always vent the gasses and always use dry seasoned wood.If you don't vent the gasses the drum will explode.Very bad situation.Dry wood chars alot faster than green wood.
