Trivia

  • Charcoal has the same texture as coal
  • The only difference in functionality between coal and charcoal is that coal can be used to craft the coal block while charcoal cannot.
  • Charcoal requires one piece of fuel to be made, however it smelts 8 items, meaning it smelts more than it costs to make.
