Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great taste without the addition of a bunch of wood Really love the added flavor using the Hardwood Charcoal. As with all Kingsford it has great burn time and usually has more than enough left when cook is finished. Bags are very durable and I’ve never had one with a tear or hole. All around great product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great mix Why decide between lump or briquettes if you don't have to? Burn great and add good flavor.
