If Kingsford® Competition Briquets burn hotter, should I grill with fewer briquets?

The number of briquets you use should be based on the size of your grill, what you are cooking and how you are cooking it. Because everybody’s grilling experience is unique, we recommend that you control the amount of heat you need by adjusting your grill’s air vents. In general, if you want equivalent burn time compared to Kingsford® Original charcoal, use the same number of briquets.
