Not voting either way but got two bags of this the other week and really disappointed as the heat just doesn't seem to last long enough to do one proper round of BBQ. Smells lovely and lights well but you have to be on it to finish the job if you are cooking for several people. My second attempt I ended up dumping most of a bag on and then dropped sausages down to nearly the level of the coals which got the fire raging for just long enough to raise up again and char grill a handful of items. I'm probably doing something wrong but never had such issues before even with rubbish petrol station charcoal. I'll stick to lumpwood for now.
I buy this when on offer just fire it up after a long cook to finish things off and it's ideal 👌
Can you recommend an alternative that is same as this please? I agree, Weber name = higher price (but they are quality too). I'm waiting on restaurant grade lumpwood charcoal to be delivered but all I want to do is quick burgers and hot dogs for a few of us, so something like this will be perfect for me. I plan to experiment with slow cooking so can always use the other stuff for that.
I had that problem ordered loads of bags of Pellets for my grill and Weber briquettes and Big K Lumpwood for my Smoker with the offers there has been over the last couple of months, ran out of storage and ended up buying some big nestable storage trunks from B&Q done a great job over the last 2 months & kept everything dry. Cost me more than I've saved on all the fuels, but hopefully they'll pay for themselves over time.
