Do these coals burn hotter than other Kingsford® charcoal products?

Yes, Kingsford® Competition Briquets do burn hotter than Kingsford® Original charcoal. Grillers should pay special attention to temperature control inside the grill, arranging briquets and adjusting grill vents accordingly. The new briquets provide grillers with maximum versatility in cooking methods – whether grilling, searing or slow cooking.
