BBQ coal?

Hi all.
So its that time of year to get the bbq's back out and i need to stock up on charcoal.
Last year i bought 4 x 4KG bags of Heatbeads and they were great, lasted a long while and didnt burn out too quick but they are quite expensive.
I dont mind buying the same again, but wanted to see what others are using be it charcoal or lumpwood or briquettes.

Thanks

Always lumpwood charcoal (Big K normally), never briquettes unless that is all there is left.

Weber briquettes here also.

They don't break down for ages, keep the heat within them and are easy to light.

Weber briquettes here too. I've tried different brands, but have found the weber to burn hotter for longer.

Cheers

I’ll have to try those Weber ones. I have a weber kettle and lighting ‘chimney’ which I love.

Highly recommend the Webers. Our first one lasted 15 years.

I usually use lump wood for regular bbqs and heat beads if I’m doing a long cook like a whole chicken or roast

Are the webbers not impregnated with chemicals either so they burn cleaner and don’t taint food?
