Yard Slack

Yard Slack

Yard slack is made up of the small pieces of coal and coal dust that settles at the bottom of the heaps of coal in our yard. If you put it on a fire that's already burning, it settles into the gaps between the larger pieces of cobble or doubles, damping down the air circulation around the fuel This slows down the burn rate and for a while it can look almost as if the fire's gone out. Eventually, though, it catches light and gives a steady, long burn. It's the stuff you put on the fire to keep it lit through the day while you're out, or to make sure the fire keeps burning slowly overnight.
