7kg bag of lump wood charcoal for £2 this weekend at B&Q. :thumb:
brilliant martin just what we need xxx many thanks
all sold out at 9 am despite website saying 300 available!
It's worth checking with your local store. Ours had approx 50 bags on display late this morning. Taking mine to Stratford so all we need is that weather that Jim ordered. :Cool:
another one who uses a "proper bbq" I know where to come to then if we run out :Rofl1::Rofl1::Rofl1::Rofl1:
Bring wine and a big smile :thumb:
For a charcoal barbie..
buy proper fuel for it.. charcoal briquettes..
they burn evenly and much longer than lumpwood.. :thumb:
completely agree with you, but at £2 per bag compared to £8-£12 we are hoping to slum it
I got 2 bags from our local B&Q, contents are a bit bitty but so are the bags I get at £8 - 10 for 7kgs, so a good buy:thumb:, I disagree about the briquettes, I find the lump wood gives a better heat and aren't as smokey during the start up:thumb:
Anyway thanks for the tip off Martin
well B&Q north circular road near Hall Lane Chingford has stacks and stacks of the stuff.
Probably because they are limiting each person to 3 bags each
bahhh bahhh humbug
at least we got some :thumb::thumb::thumb::thumb::thumb::thumb:
I happen to know one of the last remaining charcoal burners and on his advice I always use lumpwood.
Charcoal briquettes are £2.89 or so at Aldi for 4kg. Get them all the time.
Got some briquettes from Lidl two weeks ago, £2.89 for 7kg, bit smokey on light up and you need to keep stirring them up a bit as they are heavy on ash which chokes the heat down, ok for a fire pit though. If you can afford them, Aussie Heat Beads take some beating, had them wrongly priced in the Range in April but they’re about £6 for 4kg now.
