Rated 5 out of 5 by from BBQ gone right I love the fact that I was able to use this for our bbq. We had a time where it was warm outside, so we were able to grill for at least a day. I definitely plan on using this brand more for the summer when we are out there often.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fun in the Summertime! The Kingsford Charcoal Briquets has been a staple in our home for years! The new Bourbon BBQ were a nice addition to the briquet selection. We grilled chicken using them and it smelled and the flavor level was perfect - not too much, not too little. They were the same great quality when lighting and duration of heat.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Kingston Bourbon BBQ charcoal! Kingston has always been our go to for charcoal grilling. The new favors they have recently introduced have added enjoyment to grill! The Bourbon BBQ flavor gives a hint of bourbon, without it being too over powering. They burn evenly & the aroma while grilling chicken, steak or veggies is heavenly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great flavor Finally weather warm enough to grill today and cooked pork steaks . Kingsford Bourbon BBQ charcoal briquettes were easy to light and burned well. The smoke while they were cooking also smelled great. These briquettes added extra flavor to the meat and will be purchasing more when this bag runs out.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Same great product with a little smell I was very excited to try this, as Kingsford has been my go-to charcoal brand for years. And it works well, just like regular Kingsford. I gave it only 3 stars because the aroma of the bourbon is almost undetectable and I didn't find any difference in either taste or aroma in the finished product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Kingsford excellence Kingsford is synonymous with grilling. Kingsford is the gold standard for charcoal briquets. These Bourbon Barrel and oak wood briquets and flavor boosters are no exception! This is time released deliciousness. The flavor boosters are not overpowering, just the perfect amount of added flavor! They are easy to light and burn well. The aroma coming from the grill is amazing and now I will have a hard time going back to my gas grill!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Product Kingsford always has great products, but this Bourbon BBQ charcoal is one of the best. The smell was amazing while burning and the briquets burned evenly. The flavor of the food was complimented by the subtle flavor of bourbon BBQ and everyone loved it. We use it with steak, chicken and burger.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Yummy!! We tried the Kingsford Signature Flavors Charcoal Briquets and Flavor Boosters - Bourbon BBQ flavor and it was delicious. The briquets burned well and evenly (as always with Kingsford). While the steaks were grilling, I could smell the bourbon BBQ. The steaks tasted great. We will be using more of these briquets!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great bourbon flavor The Kingsford Bourbon charcoal briquets add a nice flavor without the work and expense of a large smoker. The briquets come premixed for the perfect amount of flavor. I used the briquets to make chicken and they were easy to use and gave a great bourbon flavor. The chicken tasted just like the chicken I bbq with my large smoker. I will definitely be using Kingsford briquets when I’m bbqing away from home or when I don’t want to heat up my large smoker with expensive pellets. I highly recommend Kingsford flavor boosters and can’t wait to try them all.
