King of the Grill 4x 1KG instant lighting lumpwood charcoal £4.49 or £2.69 after 40% discount voucher @ Lidl

I've managed to pick up three bags of these since the offer came out a little while ago. When you arrive at the store, head to the back where the tills are and there should be some Lidl magazines. There are paper magazines, and then thicker paper/card magazines. The thicker card magazines have 4 vouchers in the back. I didn't pay any attention to any of the other deals but the charcoal at £4.49 is already good value, so reduced to £2.69 after the 40% discount makes this cheaper than buying in bulk at Makro with the added bonus of being self lighting in 4 individual 1KG bags. Obviously 1 per customer per transaction but I generally go for lunch to Lidl so managed to stockpile three bags

good find op, heat added
good stuff, generally no problems getting BBQ going
Good price. Ok so I'm new to the charcoal BBQ game, been using a gas BBQ for years but have got myself a charcoal oil drum BBQ now as I like the smell n taste of the food cooked on one of them compared to the gas BBQ. Can anyone tell me what is the difference between lumpwood charcoal and charcoal briquettes? I've got both and realise the briquettes burn slower so last longer hence use less amount compared to lumpwood which catches alight much quicker but I realise I have to always top up more frequently. Apologies if it's an amateur question to ask.

Currently Home Bargains in Beckton sell both types in 5kg bags for £2.99 and today I also saw Wilko have 5kg bag of briquettes for £3.50

The lumpwood charcoal is better than standard charcoal as it burns that little longer. Instant like makes it easier to light I guess the briquettes burn for a lot longer but can be a pain to light at times. Easiest suggestion for a noob would be to cover the necessary area with instant light lumpwood (for an oil drum bbq) presumably 2 x 1kg bags, once that's almost fully lit, chuck on the briquettes, that way they'll light much easier without any additional lighter fluid necessary, that way you'll get a good burning hit for a couple of hours. (you could break some fire lighters and sprinkle over the briquettes, but it's really not needed, unless you're running late

Hope that helps
Also remember, these bags are 2 for £7 which I noticed a couple months back, but ever since, the sign has disappeared from the store, but I verified it week before last.

Thank you ever so much for the tip. Yes I realised yesterday briquettes are very difficult to set alight and used a lot of fluid so this will certainly help, will try it out today

Can you still get the 40% off with 2 bags? Post mentions one per customer.
Forget instant lighting charcoal. Too many chemicals in there. Get some lump wood charcoal and use a Weber chimney starter. http://www.weber.com/weber-nation/grill-skills/mastering-smoke/using-a-chimney-starter/using-a-chimney-starter
If you don't want to spend £20 on it, Tesco or home base sell the same type for a fiver. Best way to start a real BBQ without any chemicals.

Indeed the better and more economical method however by the time your BBQ coals are ready any lighting fluids have burnt off. Briquettes however I'm always unsure about because there not natural pieces of charcoal.
