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.
