  • Ready faster. Burns even longer. New, sure fire grooves. Better BBQ flavor than gas. Lasts the same as a 20 lb bag. More edges and surface area to catch the flame quickly. Grooves provide air channels for fast heating and even burning. Made in the USA.

    3/5,
    "i only have it casue it was cheap"
    Pros - it works enough to get my smoker box hot enough to burn my wood
    Cons - lots of ash, tons of filler, odd taste
    I really am not a fan of this charcoal. as soon as my last bag is used, i will be going back to lump

    "One step above dried cow patties."
    Pros - Sam's always has a twin bag set in stock
    Cons - Briquets seem lighter and don't burn as long as a Royal Oak. Loads of fly ash.
    This was my Dad's go to for charcoal, cause ol'Dizzie recommended it. AND I heard the tale of Henry Ford every time a bag was poured. I didn't know there was anyother brand for years and years. Then they came out with that Mesquite impregnated coal, I started looking and decided for ease of convienence to use Royal Oak. I admitt at the time I had no idea again there was others available. Then they came out with the new and improved briquet again, the ones with the cross on the briquet. That completely ended my use of Kingsford. Fast burn, ash flying all over the pit, really ruins a good cookin.

    Totally unimpressed now.

    Pros - Cheap, widely avaialable
    Cons - briquettes with mystery filler, too much ash, odd taste
    As a last resort I will use Kingsford Blue bag for smoking or grilling.  I dont like all the ask it generates, the taste it gives off, or the mystery fillers they use to form the briquettes.  I prefer lump hands down.

    Same here, never detected a strange taste. But comparing Kingsford to Lump is apples and oranges.

    Not sure where this "odd" taste comes from. I have used this for years and have never detected the slightest "odd" taste from using this charcoal. However, I never put food on until the charcoal is completely white and when I have to add more charcoal I have already anticipated this and use my chimney starter to get the charcoal white before adding it. I also won't buy this except when Lowe's & Home Depot have their usual sale a couple times a year (4th of July - Memorial Day) where I get a bundle of 2 - 20lb bags for either $5 at Home Depot or $10 at Lowe's. Then I buy enough to build a bunker.

    Awesome and hilarious review Foam. I've ONLY used kingsford because... Well. I guess I don't know why. If you're a Royal Oak fan then that good enough endorsement for me my friend. I'll give it a try.
