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!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from These are so convenient I started my grill and added flavor booster to my charcoal. Keeping the top closed while cooking for maximum flavor That simple. I paired mine with shellfish and chicken and was delightful and savory. I highly recommend this product and can’t wait to try the next flavor.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Magnetic aroma These flavor boosters are super easy to use, and they add a great flavor to any meat. It's very mellow but you can so tell it's there. I have used chicken breast and steaks with these flavor boosters. The best part of the whole process is the aroma that just calls you to where your pit might be. So fragrant and fresh adding that special touch to your meats.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great! These flavor boosters work great. I prepared them the same as I do as always. I was cooking a steak, and added these on the grill. It smelled nice as I was cooking, and I could taste the flavor in the steak. I would have never thought to put flavor in these.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Smells amazing I cannot believe how much this changed the taste and smell of my food. From the first time I used the Thyme briquettes it was like magical flavor had taken over my grill. This particular day we had pork chops and potatoes in grill. Next time we are trying turkey and ears of corn. Directions are easy to understand and do. Bag is kind of messy but worth the flavor in the end.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Kingsford has done it again!! Kingsford Signature Flavor Boosters were a huge success at my last barbecue! Without mention, the guest immediately noticed the wonderful aroma of a Sage, Basil, and Thyme mixture. I quickly told them about Kingsford's signature line if flavors, they couldn't wait to be served, lol! Once we had our first bites, that same aroma was delivered in a flavor added to the meat. I want them for every barbecue!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Tasty addition Like many people, we use charcoal when we use our barbecue grill. When we found the Kingsford flavor boosters we couldn't wait to give them a try. To our surprise, the flavor boosters added a pleasurable addition to the meat. We look forward to using them again!
