Hardwood Charcoal

baruch Mar 18, 2002 02:38 PM

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.

    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.

      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.

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