It's horticultural charcoal.  I wouldn't use the charcoal briquetts use for
grilling they probably have harmful chemicals in them.

Just wanted to ask if a book says uses one part charcoal in a planting mix
what charcoal are they talking about?  Are they talking about the ordinary
charcoal one uses to start a fire?

Sorry if it is a stupid question but here we are still a bit behind the rest
of the world and I was always intrueged as to what charcoal they are
