This summer I've changed from grilling with charcoal briquettes to using lump charcoal. I'm also no longer using lighter fluid but using a chimney. So no chemicals. What do I do with the ashes. I knew I shouldn't use the old charcoal briquette ashe in the garden, but do I have more "organic" ashes now? Is there anything I can do to recycle them? I'm not putting them in the compost as I don't want to kill my worms. Is there something else I can do with them? Mix them with dirt or something? I did a little googling but got mixed results. I think some don't distinguish between briquettes and lump charcoal. Can I dispose of the ashes as if it was wood ash from the fireplace? I don't grow lilacs or lavender so not sure what plants would benefit from the ash as a fertilizer.
