So I m planning on having a little get together this Friday with some friends on a local beach where we re allowed to have bonfires. I got the permit and it says only charcoal allowed in a hole dug in the sand.

I have no experience with using charcoal to make a bonfire, I m only used to cooking with it.


Does anyone have experience with this? Especially in a beach setting? Any tips or advice would be greatly appreciated.
