This excellent charcoal is produced in larger chunks so that it is ideal for use on a wide range of bbq's from the typical garden barbecue to larger, professional grilling and BBQ equipment. Made from lumpwood charcoal, these pieces burn hotter and for longer than ordinary charcoal and are popular with restaurant professionals and garden chefs alike.

CPL Restaurant Charcoal produces a high and stable heat for long periods of time, enabling you to create the perfect BBQ or grilled food. Restaurant charcoal is extremely popular in exotic cooking as it gives you perfectly flavoursome results.

I have personally ordered a load of this and can confirm it's a quality product, some of the chunks had to be broken with a hammer as they were so big!

But what about factoring in the £200 shed to store it all in ? Reckon if you had a barbecue every nice day that would last you a good four years in this neck of the woods .

£39.96 for me? the code showing under your post doesn't work.

Not sure that truck would fit in my garage . May have to move the bikes out

Big lumps of charcoal at not necessarily better unless you're cooking a hog roast! They take ages to fully light and cover in ash. By the time you've got your BBQ fit to cook on I'll have had my medium rare steaks beautifully cooked over instant lighting charcoal, (about £1 a kg at Aldi) had desert, washed up, put the BBQ away and on my way to a hangover!

....hence me breaking it up with a hammer....this enabled me to place it into the chimney starter.
I dont like the instant lighting stuff as it's impregnated with chemicals, this is natural and burns hotter.

Just what i need on September, start of the traditional British barbeque season ...

The chemicals burn off very quickly and only a hazard if you add instant fuel mid cooking IMO. More hazardous cooking meat with very hot uneven charcoal due to carcinogens in burnt bits of meat

48 Kg was just an example, fairly sure you'll get a better discount if you call them and negotiate (_;)

This deal is a slow burner !

This is a deal for a BBQ hobbyist which clearly many of you aren't.

Those in the know will know that this is good gear and at less than a £1/Kg is pretty good.

This is proper charcoal not the consumer sh1t you find in DIY stores.

Good find OP.

Cheers Stu

Probably like yourself Monkeybumcheeks I use a lot of charcoal and only use restaurant grade. (Bookers Blue Bag or Big K usually or BGE's own if I'm feeling flush :p)

I have a BGE Kamado cooker and this stuff is ideal, the bigger the chunks the better. Some cooks can be 12 hours in one go for a Brisket for example. Nothing is wasted as when the cook is finished you simply close off the air, the fire goes out and the coals remain in the cooker ready for lighting next time.

This won't be for everyone, if you are just burning some burgers or sausages on a Sunday afternoon I doubt you'll see the benefit.

I'd love a BGE, but will have to settle for my Weber until my numbers come up!

I'm starting to get into the low and slow and indirect methods as well as adding different types of woods to enhance the flavours......my jerk chicken is pretty awesome these days, but there is always room for improvement.

A little tip....just order enough to qualify for free delivery....I got sent a booklet with a 15% off voucher for my next order.....this will be the mother load (_;)



Voted coaled...

Mmmmm nice, heat added

Nice, apart from the fact that it's crap compared to this.

Better than Weber?

This or Big K?

This or Big K?


Big K restaurant grade is better but this stuff is still good.

I've been through 4 bags of that this year. Good charcoal at a good price, heat added!

Fair deal.

Mate if you are using instant light charcoal then you clearly are not a serious bbq fan. The have impregnated chemicals that allow the charcoal to burn, this gives off flavours and they also typically use softwood charcoal so it doesnt burn for as long or as hot as hardwood. The restaurant grade charcoal is significantly better than anything you will get from a supermarket which is typically **** and junk they can offload to the public.#

Saying all that I am not a massive fan of CPL as some of the bags are reduced to rubble, but generally burns very very well and unlike the poster above, does not actually produce nearly as much ash as the junk you get from the 3-5kg supermarket bags. We run 5x smokers for 14-18hrs at a time and this will be be with 7-8kg of hardwood restaurant grade charcoal (typically the blue bag cpl stuff or bigk).

Its similar to BigK restaurant grade, it will be a good fit for your UDS

Soul-2-Soul

I agree BigK is better, but unless you have a discount or buying massive bulk expect to pay £1/kg + shipping. so it will be about £20 more.

This is hot, the people comparing this to instant light supermarket stuff is madness.

This is niche granted, but these are the people who know the true value & quality of this product.

Great deal for Kamado grillers

10% discount is not working anymore when making an account. Also the link on the offers page on the website is broken.

Nice deal have some heat from a kamado joe enthusiast

Definitely stocking up on this for my BGE. Will keep me going forever! Good quality lump wood makes such a difference.

Can't work out how to get the discount applied

then you're doing it wrong because it doesn't actually take that long to get glowing if lit properly.
but you wouldnt know that anyway because if you did you would never use instant light as that stuffs coated in nasty chemicals which ruin the flavour. this coal is for the real grillers
