It has been windy lately. Really windy.
Charcoal briquettes, not my first favorite ingredient for adding into the urban garden. It made me wonder, "What exactly is in a 'charcoal briquette'?"
From the California BBQ website:
Some claim that Kingsford briquettes have an unpleasant odor, especially when they are first lit, and many wonder if they contain any petroleum products. After an investigation, it has been determined that neither Kingsford Brand nor any other known commercial charcoal briquettes contain any petroleum products.
- wood char
- mineral char
- mineral carbon
- sodium nitrate
Per the MSDS, Kingsford lighter fluid is 100% alaphatic petroleum solvent. Again, not my first choice for an addition to the urban garden.
Sigh. The urban garden, always a work in progress.
