Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not worth it It had purchased a bag of the chili flavor. Open the bag up and out of the whole bags their was only 15 chili bricks. And they looked moldy. Didn't know it was mixed with original Kingsford .charcoal. Definitely will not buy again!!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not bad I had the chance to sample the Kingsford Signature flavored charcoal briquettes cumin chili flavored. It had an amazing smell, burned well, and stayed hot. The flavor was very light not what I was expecting. I put chicken, pork chops, and hamburgers on the grill, just to have a variety. It didn’t add as much flavor as I was expecting, but it did have a light flavor.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Smells Great They really smelled great wlhile cooking some whole chickens and vegtables. They lit easy and burned nicely. It added smoke and chili flavor to the meat that the family loved. The amount of flavor that came from those briquets was suprising.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice subtle added Flavor We cook outdoors a lot and we're always trying new things to improve our grilling. The Kingsford Signature Flavors Chili & Cumin really did add a nice little hint of flavor. What I was impressed with is that you can actually smell the cumin before cooking with them. And cumin is one of my favorite spices. It adds a little hint but isn't overpowering. A nice little touch.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great flavor Gives off a great flavor on your food. Decent size bag for the money. This works great with chicken and veggies on the grill. I was a little skeptical of these just because of the flavoring in the charcoals but they work so well

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love em! Loved these! They were great with beef and pork. I can imagine they would be fabulous with chicken and fish as well. Like other Kingsford products, they were easy to light and got nice and hot fairly quickly. The light scent of the cumin and chili was so amazing. Almost better than the light added flavor from grilling.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the Flavor I didn’t think that this was going to be so good but This gives the meat such smoky flavor. My husband used it to grill last weekend, and it gave the chicken the best flavor. Definitely recommend using this product.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Just Kingsford I got this out of curiosity. Didn’t have high expectations on the flavor scale. It is a very clean burning charcoal, just as all Kingsford charcoal has been for me. I did not detect any difference from the use of original Kingsford.
