Hardwood Charcoal

  • b

I have run out of hardwood charcoal and was wondering if any of you knew a good source for this in the Boston/South Shore area?

I really like sugar maple charcoal, but any will do.

Thanks in advance.

      They are the best, the cheapest and they are open 24/7.

    2. Trader Joes sells hardwood charcoal, it's mixed woods though.

        Actually, I haven't bought it there, but one of my friends says that Trader Joes buys it from Brookline Ice and Coal, too.

      2. Read the replys and just wanted to add a few things.
        I usually buy Cowboy Charcoal, real hardwood charcoal, for $4.99 (8.8 lbs.) at Market Basket for convenience. I was at the Ashland location Sunday, found it mismarked at $1.99 and bought a few bags. Brookline Ice and Coal (not open 24/7 as another poster suggested) sells a 20 lb bag for $10, plus they also sell mesquite and hickory in both blocks and chips.
