Charcoal Grill

Look – it's time you tried it. Time to scratch that itch. You've been smelling it waft around your neighbourhood more and more over the past few years. The "young people" are excited about it. You've been curious about it since college. It's legal in LOTS of places now. Even your spouse thinks it might be ok to give it a try so ... spark it up: get that charcoal barbecue burning.

There's no doubt that cooking over a charcoal grill, especially in the summer, is a must. Or at least the idea of it is. Your backyard better. Your food better. And it's fun – you get to play with fire while you cook your dinner. For those of you out there who haven't done it before, don't worry, you're not alone.

Grilling with charcoal can be really intimidating. While you, in a way, have control over some things (the type of charcoal you use, for example), you have less control over others (THERE ARE NO DIALS OR BUTTONS and you actually have to get things 'lit'. WITH FIRE). It's time to get over the intimidation and just get grilling; after all, there's no replacement for that unmistakable flavour that charcoal imparts. Don't have a grill? Check out our huge selection – there's something for every person, price range, and preference (try saying that three times fast!). As for picking out the best charcoal, we've got everything from Jack Daniels Whiskey Barrel Charcoal Briquettes (BBQ and whisky go together like... BBQ and whiskey) and good old Canadian Maple Leaf Lump Charcoal.
