Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent way to add another layer of flavor While this is no substitute for properly flavoring your meat before grilling, it does add an additional subtle layer of flavor to the cooking process. The little booster blocks were easy enough to use, I just placed them on the charcoal before adding the meat, and closed the lid for a while, which gave the chicken a nice smoky flavor above and beyond just grilling it by itself.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing I am officially obsessed with this product. It adds a lot of flavor to any grilled meat, but I especially adore it on ribs. It is very easy to use and it tastes absolutely amazing, it even smells great while cooking.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great taste The Kingsford flavor booster tastes amazing. It is extremely easy to use. All you have to do is add it to the Kingsford charcoal you already use. The taste of cumin chilli is not over powering it is just a hint bit makes burgers and steak a nice kick.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Flavor! My wife and I tried these briquettes to see how much of a difference they would make from the regular. I'm glad we tried them cause the extra flavor is a definite bonus, we tried these on some burgers and they were even better than before!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Adds a little flavor if you use charcoal I don't typically use charcoal, so it took me a while to finally give these a try. I mixed these in with my charcoal, and while it added a little flavor, it wasn't much and didn't really affect the flavor or taste of the food. I would stick to flavoring the food itself.
