Saw charcoal there in a Brazilian shop in the Moore St Mall there, so might be something that they have year round. Check if there's one local to you.

In season, I was able to get Weber chips in Woodies, but not at the moment.

I'd like to get the larger chunks myself...but the chips seem to do the job too.

A couple of the fancy Garden centres had wood specific webber charcoal chunks, pricey but the mesquite smelled amazing

Were they chunks, as opposed to chips? I've never seen chunks available here unfortunately.

The Weber chips are good - I got the Hickory and they add a great flavour to beef or chicken. Would like to try the mesquite though.

I've gotten weber apple/cherry chunks from Newlands garden centre , definitely prefer them to chips. They're a bit expensive.

wood logs chunks and chips I get of ebay.cheaper than garden centers.

Got some NamChar Namibian charcoal from woodfuel.ie

I would recommend the medium size as the small domestic fell through a Weber rack without a smaller wire mesh to hold them. Good prices. He was delivering to restaurants in Dublin so I meet him & collected a few bags from him.

There used to be a guy back of the iBIS hotel at red cow selling that stuff, it's like an iron bar and calorific value is nuts

Try Polish shops, I got the tip from a Polish lady a while before Xmas and was able to find it no bother in a Polonia I think.
