Searching for Briquette Charcoal

Hola! We are searching for Kingsford charcoal. Apparently Sam's is the only place that carries it and only sometimes (not last week). Has anyone been there in the last day or 2 and seen it?

Hate to waste a taxi trip only not to find it again. Thanks!

Briquettes Are Dead

There are now officially NO charcoal briquettes in Playa. Went to virtually every store in the past 2 days, including Sam's, and they are nowhere to be found. Rest in pieces, briquettes! :-((

I have a couple of bags but I have had them for months (my ex and I broke up and he was the one who grilled). Don't know if they are still good, but you are welcome to have them if you'd like them.

Did you go to the hardware stores on 30? If you go up to 30th and CTM area there are stores that sell grills. They also sell bags of charoal. You have to ask because I think they keep them in back.

Yes, please, Heather

Heather, I would like to take you up on your charcoal offer, but don't know how to contact you directly to make arrangements.

Hi Keith, I'm out of town for a bit, but shoot me a PM with your phone number and I'll send you a text when I can put the stuff together and give you directions to my place.
