No, Napoleon Blackstone Lump Charcoal is not made up of black stones. It's a question we're often asked (no, it's not), and we respect you for asking it (no, we don't - it's a silly question). Napoleon Blackstone is actually made up of sugar maple, birch, and beech hardwoods.
This charcoal from Napoleon is relatively new on the scene. We test out all of our charcoals before we bring them in, but we can't be the only ones with an opinion. Try a bag of this one and leave a review. But, you should know that our store manager at our Ontario location LOVES it!
