Hopefully it should arrive tomorrow, although I'll have to confirm that in the morning.

 

Had a chat to a local BBQer tonight and got some great info for a good source of charcoal and cheap, local, plum wood - so not all bad news!

Belated welcome to the forum Paul!

 

You're definitely in the right place for everything Kamado! I too only just got my Kamado Joe recently and my experience with the KJ so far has been nothing short of life changing. Everyone here is great and there's a lot of experienced Kamadians(?) here who are always happy to help out and give support  :)

 

Out of interest, what's your source for coal? So far I've used two 10kg bags of ['Premium grade' charcoal] which has been decent. I've still got a couple of bags left but I picked up a 12.5kg bag of 'Restaraunt Quality' charcoal from Bookers which was only £10 (£12 inv VAT) which is meant to be decent. I'll let you know what it's like.

 

I hope you enjoy it and I know you will! I'm looking forward to seeing some of your cooks!

Thanks for the welcome!

 

Due to a rather unfortunate set of circumstances I haven't had chance to light the Kamado yet! Very much looking forward to the weekend, although given the current state of the weather I'm a bit concerned it might be a wash out.

 

I bought a couple of bags of Weber lump from here: http://www.wowbbq.co.uk/products/weber-lump-charcoal-10kg--17610.html

 

The charcoal source is a local cash and carry, which I haven't investigated yet, although he did say he has a better source in the works...

Hi Paul. Welcome, I'm new on here too, picking up a Kamado last month. I'm just up the road from you in Walsall, so I'd be interesting in hearing about your supply of wood.

For charcoal, I've been using Big K lump which is on offer at Morrisons at the moment, for £5 for a 5kg bag.

As for meat, if you struggle to get the meat joints lots of low and slow cooking requires and is talked about on here, then let me know as there's a year local butchers that has brisket, all kinds of ribs and "Boston butts" readily available, which seems pretty rare in the UK, from what I've read.

I'll ask my wood guy if he minds me passing on his details.

 

I'd be interested in your butchers. I've not found a source for meats yet but saw a farm with it's own butcher last week which I was going to check out this weekend. One of my colleague's dad is a butcher too, so I'm hoping he'll be a good source!
