years that we've switched to gas and electricity which have no flavours and are bad for the earth. Charcoal is a locked system. The trees give us oxygen and they store the carbon, we cook it and release it but it's a circle. It's how it always was and will be.

Cooking on gas and electricity releases hydrocarbons which have been buried in the earth for hundreds of thousands of years. They are just warming up the earth. Use charcoal. Use locally made charcoal. Oxford Charcoal cook their woods at lower temperatures to retain the volatiles that can impart wood note flavours to ones bbq. Or make fresh charcoal. Cook on wood.

"Just get cooking. Go outdoors and light a fire"
