Charcoal options in Australia

Recommended Posts

Hi All,

 

While I wait for my BB 32" I need to source some charcoal in Australia.

Where I live I don't have any local options, so I either have to buy online, or possibly get from Adelaide. This is fine, but it will be hard to restock quick if I run out. 

So, any suggestions on brands to use here ?

 

Thanks

Cheers

Jamie

Wilson look out for Gidgee large lump charcoal. It’s the third hardest timber in the world and burns clean with little ash.
I’ve tried the mangrove charcoal and think it’s rubbish. Iron bark is pretty good. Some of the Bunnings charcoal is rubbish- I haven’t tried what Aussie suggested.
There is a guy locally here who sources it from south west queensland- Pretty close to SA.
A 20kg bag costs me $40 and 5 bags would do you for a year. I cook with it 3- 4 times a week. Sometimes more.
Ask Fenwesco in Adelaide. Pretty sure would know some suppliers.

THanks so much for your replies. Gives me a good starting point. 

 

Knowing that 100kg of charcoal would last about a year is good info too. One of my biggest fears is running out.

Couldn't find much in the way of Gidgee large lump. But sounds great. Will keep an eye out.

 

Thanks again!

Mallee Root is also a pretty good option if you can't find Gidgee. In a pinch, I would use a brand from Bunnings called something like CharGriller. It came in a box with a white plastic handle. Was not bad, but I did prefer Gidgee or Mallee. This was in my Weber...
