Rated 4 out of 5 by from This gas helps you light the charcoal in your grill, you don't need to add a lot of liquid to your charcoal and the best thing is that the smell of gas is not impregnated in food

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It’s helps light stuff on fire, what else does it need to do. Have to get to 120 characters so again it’ll help light your charcoal on fire.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I suggest using the Orderless Charcoal Lighter Fluid. Compared to the other brands, you don’t get that after taste if someone has used too much lighter fluid. It’s not expensive so you can afford to have have a couple of bottles on hand. #Kingsfordlighterfluid #Influenster
