Rated 1 out of 5 by from Love most of your stuff but this is a no go Long story short, this smells and smokes like I loaded my grill with grass trimmings and lawn debris. I would never put a piece of meat on using this for fuel.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Easy to use We tried the Kingsford - Kingsford® Signature Flavors Flavor Boosters — Basil Sage Thyme it was really easy to use and add into our grill. The flavor It put off onto the meat was really good. Almost like having a smoker but with using charcoal instead of wood pellets.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gives your meat great flavor We love using our charcoal grill and experimenting with different types of smoking flavors. Kingsford is a brand we will buy most of the time. I was excited to see these flavor boosters and we tried them out on some chicken and steak. The flavors the boosters gave was amazing. They really added that extra touch of flavor that made them so yummy. I preferred the chicken and my kids loved it on the steak.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Was not impressed Got this thinking it was a great idea. I was not wowed at all. It does smell a little different then your regular charcoal but the food really did not taste any different. I will give it another try and see.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Summer Grilling Must Have Our meals from the grill are now so much better! I didn't realize how much these flavor boosters would add to the flavor of our meat. We used these flavor boosters for burger and steak, I highly recommend it!
