Can I use charcoal in the BioLite CampStove or BaseCamp?

You can, but we do not recommend it as an ideal fuel source.

Charcoal will glow like embers but will not promote complete combustion and you'll be left with a lot of leftover ash and mass at the end of your burn. If you are looking for a standby fuel to have on-hand for your CampStove, we recommend wood pellets or wood chips which you can find easily at your local home improvement store. For your BaseCamp, a split piece of firewood works great.
