Rated 5 out of 5 by from I switched to these and like them Been a long time user of a certain oak lump charcoal. Decided to buy a bag of this to try and liked it so much I got some more. Has a fantastic smell, burns hot and noticeably less creosote than regular k blue.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I bought two swans I bought two swans by accident and they make a charcoal I just didn't really care for this brand because it added a little bit of a flavor to my meat that I didn't care for and I know some people say hey this is delicious so maybe it just depends on who you are but for me personally I didn't care for it I prefer the original brand

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love grilled food I love grilled food it makes the food taste so much better. And Kingsford makes it so much easier. Plus you don't have to buy the lighter flood so I think it's cheaper this way. Plus I feel it's also safer and I feel it doesn't take as long to get the grill ready for grilling. I've tried the cheaper charcoal but nothing compares to Kingsford.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from These bricks are so These bricks are so great! When I go to the store my fiance always requests this brand. The different types of woods are great for different types of meats. These are adorable and worth the price. I recommend these to anyone who grills.
