Popped in Lidl in Thornaby today for some bits and pieces and invested in some bbq charcoal. This cost £2.89 for 7kg which should give around 4 bbq's worth of usage.

Will be hot I suspect
The charcoal I mean

decent enough but doesnt stay hot too long decent enough for burgers sausages but if your wanting to do anything bigger for longer stick with the webber coals

Great deal. Average price seems to be a £1 per kg or a bit less if it's briquettes. Heat.

Used the briquettes. Very hot and a bargain.

Where can you buy these 'webber coals' you speak about for £2.98 that last longer?

Aldi seems to be selling bbq charcoal as well

price and quantity, no idea, doesn't seem to be on there website for some reason

used them last year and it was great

Great price

I will check to see if they are in my local lidl

lol cute. Let me provide a more accurate comment.

Lumpwood charcoal is great for fast cooking items. It gets up to temperature very quickly, but will of course burn out considerably faster. If you want to prolong cooking time add more coal as necessary. In theory you'll get less bang for your buck doing this instead of using Briquettes, but at this price that's a moot point.

Briquettes charcoal is great for long cooking times. It takes about double the time to get to cooking temperature (and I've found trying to be conservative with the amount of charcoal is a false economy) but you get a much much slower burning coal with slightly lower temperature. If you're cooking for a group or something slow cook (like a whole chicken/spatchcock) then Briquettes are the best bang for your buck.

Short version, at this price, stock up big time.

I bought the briquettes from Aldi for £2.50 for 5kg, they lit fine and lasted for about 2 hours

RomfordTom is that the aldi on the A12?
