Rated 5 out of 5 by from Tried and true. These ALWAYS work. I've tried other brands and there is no contest. Kingsford lights quick and easy. The coals are long lasting. They arent as smokey as other brands. They cook food evenly. All my requirements are met with this charcoal.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Very Dangerous Product Bought a bag to cook some steaks at home to try out this product. Light the bag and had 5 ft flames shooting off of it for over 20 minutes. Glad it didn't light my fence or house on fire, also surprised the neighbors didnt call the fire department. Tried putting the cover on and waiting and take it off and flames shoot up again. Waited until it finally died down and coals turned white and food tasted light lighter fluid. Careful storing this product and beware when lighting it. Would be useful if camping during a raining weekend is all I can think for this.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Do NOT use this in a smoker I just got a new smoker as a birthday gift along with a couple of bags of the easy light. The smoker directions said not to use anything with lighter fluid in it. I looked all over the internet and read the entire bag and couldn't find anything that said this product had light fluid in it. After using the the first time in the smoker all I could taste on the food was lighter fluid. I wish they would put warning on the bad somewhere.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from HELP!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I bought this for a science project and i needed to know the chemicals in the charcoal products. It doesn't say them on the bag so i went to this site and it still doesn't say. The project is about which charcoals have a better qualities, with less chemicals.
