Also called charcoal. Charcoal can be made without using a charcoal kiln, but it is usually grilled in an air-tight charcoal kiln. The main characteristic of charcoal is the distinction between hard coal and briquettes.There is no law that white coal is necessarily hard coal and black coal is briquette. Hard charcoal burns well when used in small amounts, so it is necessary to collect several pieces. The black charcoal of oak tree is rather hard, but it splits well vertically and shows the shape of a chrysanthemum, so if you use it standing up, it is a lump of charcoal with good air circulation.

Charcoal must have played a major role in metallurgical technology as we entered the Bronze Age and the Iron Age through the Stone Age. In Korea, it is estimated that charcoal has been used since about 2,600 years ago.
