Rated 5 out of 5 by from Long lasting and burns completely My whole adult life I have used Kingsford Charcoal to grill. It has never failed me. lights fasts, last long, burns clean and completely. This makes clean-up a breeze. Someone gave me another brand to try, I gave it away! I love your product!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Incredible Burn Time This past weekend, I did a 12 hour smoke for pork shoulder on my original PK Grill. I was amazed that I never had to refill with charcoal, particularly since I only started with 8lbs -- half of a 16lb bag. That is astonishing performance by any measure. The flavor was great, and the temp consistency (I ran it at about 240 degrees) was also very good. Can't wait to use the other half of the bag!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from No one can cook No one can cook better BBQ than with a charcoal grill. I like the Kingsford Charcoal with Applewood because the aroma and the extra flavor it gives all of the meat is out of this world.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Heat! Superb flavor! We grill on a BGE almost daily and have used this product for everything from high heat steaks to slow smoking. The product is great for fish, chicken,pork and beef. Provides great flavor when smoking thick steaks and chops and the temp increases quickly for the reverse sear.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Horrible I have never been more disappointed in Kingford as I'm now. The apple briquettes crumble and won't get hot. With the lid open on the grill on a windy day the still won't get hot. It's been 45 minutes grilling hamburgers and hasn't even been able to flip the meat once. Had to drive back to the store and buy a different brand. Now problems Now with crumbling and getting these hot SUPER DISAPPOINTED

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Possibly a bad batch? Didn't work for me I bought a couple bags of this charcoal and they just didn't seem like good quality charcoal. They took forever to light, once lit they took way longer than 15 minutes to be ready for cooking, they didn't burn very hot and didn't last long at all. I'm not sure if I just got a bad batch or something? I have always used kingsford without issue but this is my first time trying the applewood variety. I was disappointed this time.
