A Fuel Block can be crafted with 8 Dirt and 1 Flint.



Fuel Blocks can sustain a permanent fire, similar to netherack or coal ore, when lit with a flint and steel. They can also be placed in furnaces, blast furnaces or smokers to power them. They are equal to coal or charcoal (80 seconds - up to 8 items per unit) but 1/10th as long-lasting as coal or charcoal blocks (800 seconds - up to 80 items per block). However, all materials used to craft fuel blocks are nearly infinite and easily found or produced, as well as often being considered a waste or limited use resource, so represent a relatively cheap and easy alternative to coal for smelting.
