what's charcoal briquette?

I might seem dumb to you but here in New Zealand we have nothing with that name?

Its "artificial charcoal", if you like, its made by compressing powdered charcoal BACK into little bricks with a starch binder.
Best Answer.
Also (if I may) briquettes are highly inferior to regular charcoal for every conceivable purpose.

Briquettes may have up to 30% clay to help bind the powdered charcoal. Usually 15% to 20%. This reduces the heat available and increases the ash.

While I won't disagree with steve's comment, there's probably more than charcoal in them. Or it's compressed first from wood-chip and then "cooked".
Burns fast and tends to be high-ash.
