Rated 2 out of 5 by from Do NOT use this in a smoker I just got a new smoker as a birthday gift along with a couple of bags of the easy light. The smoker directions said not to use anything with lighter fluid in it. I looked all over the internet and read the entire bag and couldn't find anything that said this product had light fluid in it. After using the the first time in the smoker all I could taste on the food was lighter fluid. I wish they would put warning on the bad somewhere.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from HELP!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I bought this for a science project and i needed to know the chemicals in the charcoal products. It doesn't say them on the bag so i went to this site and it still doesn't say. The project is about which charcoals have a better qualities, with less chemicals.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from I grilled meat with this bags but it started to smeal like a gasoline, and it also tasted terrible... did I do something wrong? Could I eat the meat even with that flavour?

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Is this good for odor removal ? I have been hearing a lot that charcoal briquettes will take away odors in the room. I bought this bag because it was the right size now I'm wondering if it has lighter fluid soaked in it and if it would still be safe to use in the room for odor removal?

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Whimpy whimpy whimpy I second what another reviewer said. Burns hot for ten seconds and then barely hot enough to warm a hot dog. Buy a bag of the regular stuff.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quick, easy, and taste was great! I bought this for the beach house grill. It was so easy and it was absolutely the best steak I had ever cooked. Great product. Make sure all of the paper bag is burnt and the charcoal briquettes have turned gray (ash) before you cook. I also like to scrape the grill and put a light coat of olive oil on it. It prevents the meat from sticking.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Tastes like lighter fluid Tried a bag of easy light. Ruined the food as everything tastes like lighter fluid. Waste of time and money. There is entirely too much fluid soaked into the coals.
