How cheap? I need to do another bulk buy of Maple Leaf lump as well, if you're interested. If we can each take 10 bags or more then we can get it for $12/bag.
Let me know if you'd like to go halves.
I guess it depends on where you live also. This deal is near the GTA.

We were at the Supercenter yesterday near Grimsby ON and they had Kingsford briquettes for $10/18lb bag and Royal Oak lump on clearance also (sorry I can't remember the price) about a 1/2 pallet of each.

I can't remember if taxes were included in price or not, BB. I'll check and let you know. The bags are the 18lb size. I think last time I got it we picked it up at ~ 400/407. Is that okay for you?

Roger and Buttonbone, I've spoken with Nella and the price is 12.50 + GST (6%) for a total of 13.25 per bag, if we get more than 20 bags. I'm in for 10, so you guys decide what your needs are and we'll go from there. There are several Nella Cutlery outlets, but the one I spoke to was in Mississauga. It's closer than the 400/407 option, for the same price. I'm off in a couple weeks, maybe we could set something up for then?
What are your feelings about that?

Trev, how's it going? btw, gst is 5%, not 6% :D When the harmonised sales tax kicks in next year, it'll be 13% :( :evil: Also remember the Mississauga location is opened Mon-Fri only. Take care.

Hi Gary, thanks for the correction. I've heard that they want to get rid of the HST ( :lol: )
I guess it's an election year, eh?
I called the Nella, on Finfar, and they said they had a good supply of charcoal there too, so I'll see who has it before we make the trip. I'm almost out, that's why I want to get it on my week off, the week after next. I guess we'll see how it works out. Great to hear from you, Gary. How's your summer going so far?

Trev, hope your summer was good, sorry I didn't reply sooner. So you're all set for ML till next year? My supply is good till spring or early summer. It's been a wet and busy summer so I didn't get to Q as often as I'd like. Fortunately, it was wrapped up nicely on September 19 at the first Canadian Egg Fest http://www.niEGGarafest.com . Have a great Thanksgiving.

Hi Gary, I'll be good for ML until at least the spring or summer now.
The eggfest sounds like a blast!
Happy Thanksgiving
