WHAT IS IT?
Charcoal for BBQs. This is a 9kg and contains 6 individual 1.5kg bags. You just take a bag out and place it in your BBQ, light the corner of the bag and wait 20 minutes for the charcoal to burn and start glowing. You do not need fire lighters and the bag will burn slowly enough to heat the charcoal.
IS IT ANY GOOD
I like this charcoal because it saves me having to mess with fire lighters. The bag ignites very quickly and easily and you get a large flame and lots of smoke to start with. Once the bag has burned away you'll see the coals are burning and starting to glow, they glow white ready for you to put your food on the grill in 20 - 30 minutes. Before you put your food on you should move the coals around because they will remain all bunched up where the bag was located.
The coals glow strongly and food including meat cooks quickly and evenly. When the fat drips out of the meat there is sometimes a small flame that pops up but this is usual for this sort of coal and it goes down again quickly. When you're finished with your BBQ you just tip the coals away as usual and wash your BBQ. You don't get any bad smells or tastes on your food from using this charcoal.
The 9kg bag costs about £25. I bought mine from the garden centre and it works out to just over £4 a BBQ. It's worth paying that bit extra because lighting the bag is much easier than trying to light fire lighters and force the coals to catch.
