there was a business on Ebay or somewhere selling them. ? can't remember. But, I think you can buy them online, they just have to ship UPS ground I believe.
You can use matchlight type charcoal also, that what a lot of us use. I break it up in to smaller chunks, wrap some schredded paper in with it, some coal and roll it with newspaper into a small ball/bag. Put it on the grate, with some coal on top, and light it.
