    Only if there's not enough oxygen to make carbondioxide

    Only if the the burning is done in some place that that does not have enough air, such as indoors.  It not just charcoal, anything that burns is subject to the same caution.

    Very little IF there is enough oxygen.

  • Some CO will be produced, but it's mainly CO2.  However, you don't need a lot of CO or CO2 in order to cause problems, which is why you shouldn't burn it unless you're in a well-ventilated area (i.e outdoors)

    Ummm…fire produces carbon monoxide so yes. Gas grills also produce CO gas.
