  6. Hi Fire in the forge where are you? The endevour foundation in Bowen bags coke and sells it in 20 kg bags, they have different sizes ,10-20 mm , what is refered to as nut coke. as well as larger sizes. they ship it to an endevour store near you lets say Cairns or Mareeba and the freight is not expensive as they have their own trucks. try them out. Cheers Hans
