Where to buy "good" charcoal - hickory, mesquite etc.

Moved into a place with a big patio this weekend, and I'm picking up my Weber performer tonight. I usually use regular kingsford briquittes. Any places that have real lump wood charcoal?

A Queens location is also an option, if you know of anyplace.

  1. Look around starting in mid-April, lots of stores have it. Western Beef stores have lump charcoal at a good price. Lowe's and Home Depot as well. I get mine in Red Hook Fairway, but that's probably too far for you.

      Home Depot will also order it for you before grilling season, as will Gracious Home.

        Didn't even think of home depot. Thx all, I'm there after work.
