finding coal for BBQ!

If you are planning to have a BBQ at your home with your family or friends have fun but there is always a problem when you have to find wood or coal to make do it. I have to face trouble when ever I go to get coal for it. Wander around in whole city to find a place where I can get it.

Few days back I found a place in Rawalpindi, after 2 hours drive from one shop to another, the shop where I got the coal was in commercial market. Today we were planning to have BBQ at home and there was no coal in the house. I had to go out and look for it. First I had to go to Peshawar Moore because I heard from some one that I might get it from there. When I reached there I could not find a single shop where I could get it. After a long search a restaurant cashier gave me a number of a coal storage place.

I called at the number and they told me the address. It was behind the Zari Taraqiati Bank. At the end of the road going beside the Bank there is a big storage area of wood and coal.
People there are very hospitable. They offered me with a chair and later asked me to have a cup of tea.

The rates are quite reasonable, coal per kg is 20 rupees, and wood per kg is 6 rupees. If you order large amount of it they also deliver it in their own van.

Now I hope you would not have any problem and any second thought before starting a BBQ.

Their contact number is: 051-2202133
