    Could you put up a pic of the biochar? The brats look good.

    Also - just fair warning, but you may want to check in with Craig. Any kind of solicitation should get his stamp of approval first. (I don't even know if you are soliciting, just throwing it out there if that is the intent).

    Looks pretty fine to be used as grill fuel.

    Looks like it's in a plastic tray. does it light with a match? can it be used for heat or just cooking? does the tray burn and give off toxins?

    Hi Biomass burners,
    I thought you might be interested in this summary of Biochar soil technologies I posted to another Bio-char thread on this form

    Clean burning pyrolytic and gasifying cook stoves are just the small-scale, tip of the iceberg, of the vast array of applications for closing the nutrient and energy loop on farms to industrial scale thermal conversion of biomass for carbon negative transportation fuels.
