Yes, but it smokes and doesn't light as easily. Yes. Don't use very much (About a teaspoon full) any more than this and you might run into some trouble. You'll get a very hot flame, and quite a bit of black smoke which makes anything it touches sooty and black, not recommended for smokers (contaminates your smoke a bit) but ok for campers and BBQ people (Australians).
