Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great burn and great flavor I have no photos to take because I use this way too fast. It adds great flavor to your cook. I would have liked if it just had a little more wood but this overall is a great product and the heat and burn time are balanced perfectly. Great product along with the cherry wood variation

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great flavor Love using this charcoal as it is easy to light. I am allergic to hickory so it is nice to be able to get another flavor to savor. The coals got red hot rather quickly and stayed as so for the duration of my grilling experience.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Apple wood provides a great flavor! The charcoal lights up fairly well and lasts for a decent amount of time. The real star is the apple wood infusion in this though as it really adds a lot of great flavor to whatever you are grilling.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Trusted Brand for many years to come Fiance and I love Kingsford that's really the only brand we buy. It's trusted and offers great variety. Flavor is amazing to add that extra hint. Burns forever, and smoke production. Is Nirmal as expected. And heat distribution is just fine as long as you know what your doing and don't over crowd the grill.
