    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:

    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:


    Cheers Martyn

    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.
