Reuse half burned charcoal

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Probably a stupid question but thought I would ask. Does anyone save partially burned charcoal for their next use or just let it burn out? New to charcoal (and cheap) so thought I would ask. If you save it, how do you extinguish it.

I reuse it all the time.

 

I use it in my chimney to start the next fire.

 

I put the partial burnt to one side and new next to it.  

 

Start your smoke with the partial burnt and let it burn to the new stuff.

When done, I Close off vents to snuff. Next cook, shake out ash and small pieces, top off and mix in new, light and go.

Same here. I shut all vents to snuff the fire. On my mini-WSM I pull the charcoal basket out Shake out the ash, add more if ended and light.
