Charcoal is an all-natural, man-made product, made by heating wood at high temperatures in the absence of oxygen.
CHARQUEEN Mesquite Charcoal is made of 100% pure, natural wood with NO Fillers and NO Additives. We use mesquite wood because the mesquite tree has hardy wood that packs a strong, intense flavor and provides an earthy, smoky taste.
Creating carbonized wood or charcoal is an ancient and traditional technique that involves all-natural components. A pit-like furnace, which uses earth to isolate the firewood from oxygen, is used in the elaboration process of the charcoal. The firewood is placed in an excavated well or pit, and the well is then covered with a metal lid to completely isolate the wood from oxygen. The pit is designed with an air inlet and outlet at each end. Finally, the fire is lit at the air inlet or in a furnace corner. The partial wood combustion process is performed in closed, controlled conditions at temperatures ranging from 400˚C to 700˚C. The air absence is of utmost importance to prevent the wood from burning completely, and turning into ash, as happens during a conventional fire.
CHARQUEEN Mesquite briquets, lumps and chunks burn hotter, longer, cleaner, and more consistently than regular charcoal.
