Powdered Charcoal

By: Terry on 05/10/2017 02:04:19 PM

I switched to powdered charcoal from Mt. Athos years ago. I don't want to go back to briquettes. Powdered charcoal is no mess for me; it lights easier; it burns for the time I need it; it melts the incense perfectly; it's less hot than briquettes, and it's smaller in size. I have tried cutting the briquettes into quarters, but that's a mess, and they are still to big. I don't have any trouble with powdered charcoal. I hope the monastery gets some soon.
