    I don't think BBQ charcoal is suitable for horticultural use...I seem to recall some toxins in it, although I can't say for certain. It's better just to use rocks or clay pot shards.

    I'm talking about wood charcoal, sorry. I forgot you use barbeque (brisque??sp) (forgot how to spell the word), in the west. Wood charcoal is much easier for me to obtain than the other two. Rocks almost impossible, maybe bricks. I have to go and pinch a couple from the construction nearby .

    Thanks for the reminder, Jmoney.
