Unfortunately allegedly
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:

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

started when I was 11 with my parents-forgot to stop!been real one since 1980!
I happen to know one of the last remaining charcoal burners and on his advice I always use lumpwood.

Virtually none ! :)
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.
