Lokkii charcoal bricks Sat, 08/30/08 12:37 PM (permalink)
I just had to share this with other BBQ'ers out there. I first
read about these in "Chili Pepper" magazine and decided to order them.
They were a little on the pricey side because of the shipping fee.
I put a few videos on youtube and was contacted by the people who make
this product. They said they will be available in stores around Texas, where I live, in 2009. They work really well, has anyone else used them?

Here's one of the videos I filmed firing up one of these bricks.

You can now order them from amazon.com
http://www.amazon.com/Lokkii-Organic-Instant-Charcoal-Bricks/dp/B001ETYHGO/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=home-garden&qid=1220110428&sr=8-1
I think the amazon price is better than the ones I bought online somewhere else.

    Gotta ask - what makes them worth the fuss?

      What fuss, you take it out of it's package and light it.
      Within 15 minutes or so you're ready to cook.

        Let's rephrase the question then. What makes them better other charcoal?

          Well, they light really quick without lighter fluid. Two bricks are the equivalent to 5lbs of regular charcoal. Each brick is sealed and is waterproof. They burn hot for up to 2 hours.
