So my friends and I are renting a vacation house near Baamonde for a goodbye bash Saturday night on the Norte. The house has a bbq. I would love to bbq some chicken and steaks “American style” for my friends. The host says we are welcome to use the bbq but we need to bring the charcoal. Where do you find this in Spain?

Greetings friends.

Any supermarket, "carbón de barbacoa", even the smaller ones, not to mention big ones like MERCADONA or DIA, you might be able to find it even in a ferretería (hardware shop).
Buen provecho! I love the alternative way out of Baamonde, it is a beautiful stretch of forest by the river, absolutely fantastic!!!
