    Pros - Lights Quick
    Cons - Bad Smell, Bad Flavor, Overall Just A Bad Product For Grillers
    I refuse to use this lighter fluid soaked charcoal.......if you're at a tailgate just making burgers n hot dogs, sure you can use it. But personally, it goes against everything I stand for when it comes to grilling and smoking.  All natural lump charcoal or even just your standard Kingsford briquettes are the only way to go. (Stubbs Charcoal also top notch)

    "OK if you use it for what it works for"
    Pros - starts very easy
    Cons - saturated with starter fluid that takes forever to burn off
    I like to use this as a base to start other charcoal. I'll take 6-8 brickettes and use them to start a fire that I'll then add something (either charcoal or wood) to cook over. If, for some reason, I don't have good coals for the top of a dutch oven I'll put a layer of these on and light it.  just don't ever use it to cook directly over and please don't add it to an already burning bed of coals, it can explode

    I've had good luck with Kingsford "Competition" Charcoal & a Weber chimney.  Starts quick, burns good & no fluid smell.

    I exclusively use Stubbs Charcoal Briquets with a Weber chimney and Weber starter cubes. I've been grilling for over 30 years and it's never been as easy to light the coals as it is with these three items. What I love about Stubbs is that there's typically enough briquettes left to use for another grilling which saves me money. I just put new briquettes at the bottom of the chimney and the leftover charcoal on top and still get more than enough heat and flavoring.

    Sometimes I use these under a chimney to get some coals going (if I am out of weber starter cubes).  After the bag of match light has been open a couple weeks, even with the top of the bag rolled closed, the lighter fluid in them evaporates.  They will no longer "match light".
