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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from These are the only These are the only hardwood pellets my husband will use in our smoker! The provide the BEST flavor, especially with chicken. We smoke whole chicken for shredding at least once a month, and we always use Kingsford. You won’t be disappointed!

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.
