No one near us seems to sell charcoal for a BBQ and we used our last lot last weekend for a BBQ. Tried all the usual suspects and nought. The sun is shining and no one is selling charcoal for BBQs. The recession is worse than I thought! :D

Hi Surfer,

I was in our local B&Q and they had mountains of the stuff,

Regards,

Is it lumpwood charcoal you are after or the bbq charcoal briquettes? i would agree that the lumpwood charcoal is getting harder to source now that everyone seems to want to use gas.

 

Why not make your own - only a thought.

We normally use the briquettes as they seem to last longer.

Hi Surfer

 

i find that they last longer but they are a b*****r to light (and stay lit) and the heat is less than the lumpwood.

I got somelumpwood charcoal from Sainsburys this weekend just gone. It was the light in the bag ones but I do love the flavour of the food that lumpwood charcoal gives. Why dont you try your local supermarkets??

Yep, there are lots of new fangled gadgets that some call barbecues, but the original is still the best, good quality sirloin, medium rare over charcoal lump wood. mmmmmmmmmmmm

Spent about an hour visting the few supermarkets in the area but nothing. Tried Focus but all they had was the instant lighting fires at £4-70 each. Unfortunatley not that desperate yet. Probably go down to Gloucester on Saturday to see if I cna find anything. Just means no BBQ tonight! :(

Most DIY stores will have plenty of it, it's usually shrinkwrapped and put in storage over the winter to come back out in the run up to the new season which starts around Easter.

Eventually managed to get a 7kg bag of lumpwood charcoal from B & Q in Glooucester for the grand sum of £4. 95! Briquettes were a lot more expensive. Anyway managed to have a BBQ last night and then did breakfast on the BBQ which was sausage, bacon, kassler ribs and egg washed down with a cup of coffee. Tasted great at 8 am this morning! :D
