Kingsford® charcoal is made from locally sourced wood, and other natural ingredients. To minimize our environmental impact, we convert more than one million tons of reclaimed wood that would otherwise go to landfill into high-quality briquets every year.
The shelf life of Kingsford® Original charcoal is indefinite as long as the product is stored in a cool, dry place. If the briquets become damp, they will not light efficiently.
Most gas grills are not designed to work with charcoal. However, some gas grills have an optional charcoal tray accessory, which replaces your grill grates and allows charcoal to be placed over the burners. Just be sure to follow the manufacturer’s user manual.
Yes, you can use a Kingsford Pellet Tube or DIY smoker pack! Here’s how to create your own DIY smoker pack.
Tip: Minimize crinkles in the foil as much as possible by folding carefully and working on a flat surface.
Place a 12" x 14" piece of heavy duty aluminum foil on a flat surface, shiny side up.
Fold in half to create a crease.
Unfold and place around 2/3 cups of pellets on one side of the foil.
Re-fold in half and fold the top and bottom edges over, repeat with the rightmost edge.
Flip over the pack and, using a sharpened pencil, poke a few holes in the side with no visible folds to allow the smoke to escape.
Place on your gas grill for added smoky flavor.
