Carrefour MOE has some, so does every Union Co-op store.
Look around, you will find what you need.

Thanks.

•will stop cooking halfway through when something breaks and return the meat back to where you started.
•will have all the switches upside down and the gas knobs will turn the wrong way to open the gas flow.
•will not let you run the flame at maximum even though you opened the tap fully and the meat is still not cooking.
•will try to cook your meat a different way to what you want, without telling you.
•and if two people are trying to cook on it at the same time, one won't be able to tell what the other is doing with the meat.

If we're talking meat... Remember that it's the Boeing BBQs that have to add something a little extra between the legs!

Sorry to interrupt the AvB battle brewing but back to the topic:

Anyone know if you can buy a big green egg, or a Kamado joe, in Dubai? Thanks.

Ace did have stock of the Kamado Joe a couple of months ago - but I'm pretty sure they're all gone now. Inshallah they'll get some more.

Now on that topic - Anyone know where to buy some good smoking wood chunks? Not the rubbish Weber chips that Ace sell.

Lighting the fire was a delicate process for sure..!! If we didn't have two sticks to rub together, we would scratch around the house looking for an old box of Lion Matches, hoping at least one was left in the box.

Then it was a case of lighting the rolled up newspaper in three or four carefully chosen spots so that the fire would start evenly throughout the drum.

Lightning..?? Ja man... depends on whether we had a man of color standing next to the unlit braai when the rains were coming...

If you are looking for proper charcoal in DXB you will struggle.

However, if you are bothered to drive just past the 7's rugby grounds, you will come to an Eppco garage next to Exit 37 (goes to the Camel Souk and Al Lisaili model aircraft flying field). At that Eppco you will see they sell bags of Namibian firewood..!! Decent sized bags for AED 27.00 per bag...

Well worth the drive in my opinion - if you want to create the perfect bed of charcoal to cook on...

Many thanks DD,

That's what I'm looking for. It's worth the drive. I heard the Namibian stuff is pretty much same as what we have back home.
