I could do that but I prefer to take recommendations from people that have had good personal experiences.

try and get something that is at least 15mm across, get 25mm to 30mm if you can find them , also work out what length you need , nothing worse than having them too short
they are also called kabob or Turkish skewers

Brioche jobs - most places do them. High butter content so they'll sear off nicely and won't be as dry as regular fresh buns.

low and slow - Weber charcoal briquettes
grilling - good quality lumpwood, pro quality if you can get it

Lumpwood or Aussie heat beads?

I've never used heat beads but I saw them for sale the other day, £7 for 4kg.

Thanks chaps.

I normally use a Sainsbury's briquette which is Ok but just thought I might be doing it wrong as I don't seem to get a high heat but they last for ages. Will try lumpwood again but maybe a more expensive on this time.

I've only ever used the briquettes, can you light the lumpwood in chimney starter, in the same way you would the briquettes?

Yup, lumpwood goes in the chimney too.

TBH, even for very long (12+ hour) smokes, I use catering grade lumpwood only now. I use Green Olive branded stuff (£12 or so per 10Kg bag from a garden centre near me) for all smoking, grilling etc.

Heat Beads and stuff like that have an amazing burn time, but carry a heavy smoke smell with them (IMO).

Bun? You dont want to be filling up on bread.

Get a lamb chop or something on there instead.

We had burgers today. 20% fat beef, lovely brioche buns from Morrison’s, sharp cheddar, pickles and yellow mustard, with coleslaw and sweet potato/polenta/paprika chips.

Still hungry.
