If, like me, you like nothing more than sitting out on a sunny afternoon, lighting the barbecue, grill some deliciousness while drinking a cold drink of your choice, then this deal is for you.

This is the cheapest lumpwood charcoal around at the moment and in 5kg bag so more practical than heavier (sometimes cheaper but not in this case) bags.

They also have charcoal briquettes for the same price but I personally prefer the lumpwood as it gives a better taste IMO.

Happy Barbecueing peeps !

yes if you are after briquettes but no lumpwood charcoal

lumpwood is much better

I prefer briquettes as I cook most things oven style or on rotisserie so I like an even heat. When cooking over a long period I use heat beads or cheap stuff for burgers, sausages etc

Aldi or Lidl had 2 for 1. A friend used and said only really good for short cooks or burning off fat, loads of smoke and lots of ash left. I am interested in trying this stuff though, may be ideal for quick, short cooks in the evening.

Do you have a link for the 2 for 1 offer ? I have been in Lidl (not Aldi) and no lumpwood charcoal and no 2 for 1 offer even on the briquettes. I also previously checked Aldi's website and no sign of charcoal on sale yet.
I know sometimes you can get good deals at the end of the season but so far at this time of year this is the best deal I could find (hence sharing it here)

What make is it?

It says "The Original BBQ Company" on the bag

£2.99 for 5 kg briquettes in Lidl!!

lumpwood is usually at least £1 per kilo so this is red hot!!!!!!

Lumpwood burns too quickly for me, can't cook enough. I prefer brunettes, they last longer.

briquette not brunettes, hukd app won't let me edit my last comment.

​I have same problem it's very hard to keep the bbq hot enough for extended period of time. So if I am cooking chicken I've got to constantly top it up with lump wood but with the charcoal bricks it's very easy. Lump wood definitely burns hotter though so it's better for charring food fast.

What lump are you using? I have cooked a butterflyed lambs left and spatchcock chicken over lump no problem and no top up. Also used a Cuban wood and got a 4/5hr smoke on some ribs back in March. I find cheaper lump isnt very good for long cooks and for them I use Oxford Charcoal. If I am smoking a porkbutt, I use briequets and the minion method to get a long slow burn.

As I said this is perfect, for short cooks ~1.5hrs
