How to Use BBQ Ash For Plants and Projects
Is BBQ Charcoal Ash Good for Plants?
BBQ charcoal ash is good for plants if you use Natural Lump Charcoal. It is made from hardwood scraps, which makes it a great source of nutrients for the soil. However, ash from Charcoal Briquettes should be avoided as harmful additives are used to manufacture it.
Before you start collecting the ash for disposal, you should wear a face mask so that you don’t inhale the ash. Also, get a pair of fire-resistant gloves to avoid burning your hands.
Don’t use sand to extinguish the fire, as it will make it difficult to remove the ash’s saltiness. This could damage the plants. Avoid using water to cool off the charcoal if you have not thought about how you can collect the runoff.
