This makes me a bit sad.

Charcoal is an Item which is obtained by burning down a Tree or by killing Krampus. Charcoal burns at the same rate as Logs when used in a Campfire or Fire Pit; however, it can stack up to 40 rather than 20. Though, it is usually less than ideal as fuel, because a Tree only produces 1 Charcoal versus multiple Logs.

Charcoal can be used to construct a Drying Rack or a Crock Pot, and is also used to craft Fire Darts, Boomerangs, and Gunpowder.

In Don't Starve Together, Charcoal is also dropped by Klaus when it is killed the second time, and can be found in Bundled Wraps dropped by the Loot Stash.

Gathering[]

Charcoal is made by setting a tree on fire using a Torch (or any other source of Fire) and then chopping the tree down once it has finished burning. Except for the recently planted trees (sapling size), each burned tree yields 1 Charcoal when chopped regardless of how big it is. If a tree stump is burned, it will only yield Ashes. Sapling-sized trees will also only yield Ashes.

For efficiency, multiple trees can be planted close together, given time to grow into a small tree, and then ignited. The fire will jump from each tree in close enough proximity, but to prevent the unwanted spread of fire, care should be taken to clear away any other flammable objects beforehand. After the fire dies out, the entire grove can be harvested.

Extra Pine Cones will sometimes drop from burned trees, but, unlike chopping down larger trees, they are not guaranteed. Burned trees require only one axe blow to chop down.

In the Adventure Mode world "King of Winter", Charcoal can be collected on the first day due to the burnt trees at the spawn point.
