Where to buy good hardwood charcoal (Belmont/Arlington/Watertown vicinity)

PinchOfSalt | Jun 20, 2009 11:15 AM

I used to get my supply of hardwood charcoal (not briquets, lump charcoal) at Russo's. They had a variety of brands over time, always at a good price. Now they seemed to have stopped carrying any. I need another source! There's always the Barbecue Barn in Arlington, but you pay full price there. Perhaps some Hounds know of other sources. Someplace near Belmont would be very nice but anyplace near or inside route 128 between the Mass Pike and I-93 would be fine.

Yes, I know Whole Foods sells charcoal, as does Trader Joes. TJ's sells Cowboy brand, which I have used only as a last resort. It burns very quickly. According to a website that reviews charcoal by brand, WF Charcoal is actually Cowboy. So while those sources are convenient, I am hoping to find something better.
