      Charcoal is made in a kiln, it get very hot and is a good insulator

      Sometime when it is taken out of the kiln it contains red hot coals

      Hello Malcolm,
      I saw that. I was inclined to agree with you as charcoal is shipped
      and sold in paper bags until I noted the statement "Freshly prepared
      charcoal can be pyrophoric even when not powdered and it must be allowed
      to stand for a day at least before it is used in any compositions." It
      doesn't jib with then articles on this page
