Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ease Kingsford I just want you too know what a wonderful product y’all have in your 4lb bag of ready to go charcoal (not the match light) this is my first time using this even though I have been a very long time user of your products and I was saying thank you for another wonderful product So easy to use no mess no fuss just light and go and no heavy starter fluid taste like I’ve had when I tried your match light Thank you again and keep up the great work and Ingenuity this is why I will not use anything else but Kingsford products.

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.
