Eggcrate/Japanese/marine charcoal

I can't find this anywhere, though I used it once during a charter in the BVI. The issue might be my search terms so if anyone has an actual name please let me know.
It's charcoal that's shaped like it was molded in an egg crate, and you can break off sections of it as per your need. It's plastic wrapped and stays dry on board. In the BVI it was called Japanese charcoal, but that only brings up high end charcoal made from the wood on a single sacred mountaintop in my searches on Amazon and Google. Thanks for the help; it really is great stuff and I'd love to put it on board!

Sadly that's not it, either. But it does look like a useful alternative! I'll look into it more, thanks!

Re: Eggcrate/Japanese/marine charcoal

How about this idea? Get a food sealer. And at many thrift shops you can find one for $5-10 already with a plastic roll inside. Measure the charcoal what you figure is enough for each BBQ and seal. Probably will last you a long time without getting moist or damp.
