GTA Coconut Charcoal Briquettes 4 Kg Bag $4

Deal Link:
Price:
$4
I saw this post on Kijiji this morning - Coconut charcoal briquettes. 4 Kg bag $4.

I tried the product (many years ago when someone posted on RFD that a grocery store on Jane Street in Toronto carried the product and I picked up a couple of bags to try).
The price is competitive with other brands -I found the main difference is that coconut charcoal burns very hot, low ash and you can get 2-3 cooks out of the same briquettes if you smother them vs good old Kingsford briquettes.
Here's a review I found:

No scent at all - I wouldn't use them in a Kamado (lump is preferred) but I am going to try them in limited amounts mixed with regular briquettes and wood chunks in my bullet/water smoker

That place looks familiar. Clicked thier website and I recognize it. It is at Denison & Victoria Park. As a matter of fact Victoria Park ends there. I always pass by there all the time so when I saw the webpage and the store front I knew it looked familar.

Never been inside before as I always thought it was some importing warehouse of goods but now I have a reason to check it out. Seeing as the charcoal runs hot I may have to split the briquettes in half then for my use as I use a Firebox Stove ( for the curious https://www.fireboxstove.com/5%E2%80%8B-g2-firebox ).

I've been inside. The place is a like a hoarder's warehouse with crap everywhere - it's almost like going into a smaller version of that Closeout King Liquidators warehouse. Have no idea how these places operate.

Would the burning hot part be a disadvantage? I normally use briquettes in my smoker for the low heat... wonder if this will impart a new aroma to whatever food I smoke...despite the review saying low smoke....

I found them to have no aroma whatsoever - so not wonderful for cooking something where you want that "charcoal taste".
I figure if I mix a few of them with regular briquettes and wood chunks they will keep the regular charcoal briquettes burning (I often have an issue with my El Cheapo Brinkman heating up and maintaining heat despite all the mods I did) and I figure the water soaked hickory chunks that will smolder will impart the Hickory smoke flavour.

Can probably just get away with using less when smoking. But the hot burning would be great for when I make marinated korean short ribs. Too bad I don't live near Markham.

I would imagine they wouldn't give off very much flavour. Just add some wood chunks.

Ahh...well never been to Closeout King before but have seen the commercials. I'm guessing it is like the store to the right of the Pickering Market/Antique Market? They take cash only or VISA??

Maybe in the summer but in the winter it will would help with some extra heat to while it's freezing outside.
