Default Charcoal briquettes

Thanks to Sparky we now have our fish sauce, so next on the shopping list is charcoal briquettes which seem to be very rare in Mallorca. There is lots of lump wood charcoal available, but we prefer the briquettes as they give a longer and more consistent burn.

Last time we bought some from Bauhause, but it the original Weber brand and so expensive.

Anyone know where else we can get them?

Aw Sparky, after your great success today I was counting on you! Dinner tonight is all down to you.

Briquettes seem to be very uncommon. I have tried all the obvious places including our new fabulous supermarket (which is now a secret)

The big Eroski on the carretera usually have briquets in the front by the ice cubes. Also, you could try the Cooperativa a couple doors down.
