Foods from Canlok Stone
2010 Jul 27
Dropped by Canlok to pick up a few more bags of Basques maple charcoal and the price has risen considerably, as follows:
4 kg - $9.95 + HST
8 kg - $18.95 + HST
It's still worth buying instead of the ubiquitous Kingsford/Royal Oak stuff, but now only because of superior quality rather than superior price. :-)

Thanks for the tip FF ..I will have to give it a try for sure. Just as an FYI, here is a link to a pretty good database of lump Charcoal that you can buy. Mostly in the USA. I have done a trip across the border and went to several stores in New York State - ACE hardware seems to have pretty good selection of what is on the link:
The Duraflame bag can be bought at Food Basics - very good for the Price. But stock up soon since they will be hiding them in the back before the end of Sept.

The Grateful Griller got me hooked on this awesome sugar maple lump charcoal from Basques (
Canlok Stone is one of the official distributors for the Ottawa area. They sell stone, bricks, and this specific brand of lump charcoal. Go figure. ;-)
At $8.15+GST per 4 kg bag, it is really worth getting. I find it to be very noticeably superior to Kingsford, both in its willingness to ignite and in the flavour it imparts to the food.
