Hardwood from a non-toxic tree only.
Natural with no chemical treatments.
Make sure that you know both of these to be absolutely true

The glowing red in a fire is an ember and will ash away to nothing in short order.
You can make actual charcoal by depriving wood of oxygen and cooking it for a very long time to carbonize it. If you are using natural, lump hardwood charcoal in your fires then you can use that quite effectively.
