Large Quantities of Charcoal - Baltimore Area
I have a Kamado grill and go through charcoal pretty quickly. The bags I buy at Lowe's or Home Depot (Cowboy Coal) don't last very long.
We just moved to Maryland and I am wondering if any of you know of any place in the Baltimore area that sells lump charcoal in large quantities - anything larger than the usual supermarket sized bags.
I would also consider ordering by mail from an east coast distributor but can't find any leads.
Kamado makes a good charcoal but shipping costs are too high from California for me to consider this if other options are available.
Have you ever used wood in your grill? Makes a great long-lasting fire and the flavor beats charcoal six ways to Sunday. Don't know if the manufacturer of your grill advises against it but I use it in my Weber and in another big custom-made grill I have. I cut regular firewood into usable chunks for the smaller grill so they fit and burn down to embers faster.
Mixed in with charcoal, the flavor is wonderful.
Firewood is pretty inexpensive. Just don't use those fake logs.
restaurant depot sells charcoal (kingsford, etc, some places have other brands & lump charcoal) by the pallet. . .there is one in baltimore i believe-- you might have to get it thru someone who has an account there if you don't own a restaurant
