Rated 5 out of 5 by from These briquets were really good! In full transparency I don’t know the difference between a lot of types of charcoal, but it was fun trying one that is different. I made steak and it was SUPER good! Don’t mind the paper plate 😂

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Grill master necessity Kingsford low and slow charcoal briskets is it slow burn charcoal that’s great for using in a smoker. I love how these charcoal briquets are 100% natural and burn for way longer.  The key to knowing how to use. This is understanding that it is going to stay at a low, slow temperature. This will help you feel like a real grill master. You can use it in ceramic grills and smokers. I used it in a smoker to cook out brisket. Loved the experience.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Slow burn that lasts These charcoal briquets burn hot and slow which is great because you don’t run out of heat while cooking before your food is done. Easy to light and they stayed lit while slowly burning. I was impressed that I could actually tell the difference in comparison to the old kind I used.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Briquettes for Tasty Barbecue These charcoal briquettes are great! Made my barbecue a delicious treat for my family and friends. They retained just enough heat to cook everything slowly and evenly. Very impressed and will be buying over and over again.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Low and slow I received Kingsford Low and Slow Charcoal Briquets VoxBox and we added ribs to the meal line up to try them out. The ribs came out great. Had a nice smoke ring and were still tender and moist. I’m thinking we will try out using them for carnitas next!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Decent for some food items These take a very long time to get going. I tried cooking with them twice, the first using the directions on the bag of how to use them and it seemed to take over an hour before they got anywhere near hot enough to cook. The second time i used them as i would normal coals and it seemed to heat up slightly faster but still took a long time. After cooking the coals stayed warm/hot for a good while after. I imagine if you are cooking something that may take an hour or so it would be a good product. It did give good favor also

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Low and Slow is the way to go! Our family has always been a traditional charcoal fan. This is no exception! It heats pretty evenly and the low temp was perfect for smoking meat for our game day tailgate. We loved how easy it was to use. Not to mention the slight smoke flavoring of the food! It’s a good mix up to add to our game day!
