Jim, I am interested in using lump charcoal as a gasification fuel source to run a generator. Multiple posts YouTube etc suggest fuel consistency is a big factor. Have you looked into this aspect?

You will find that lump charcoal works just fine, but if you plan on
using it for long periods of time, lump charcoal will get rather
expensive to buy very quickly.
