Rated 4 out of 5 by from Add flavor without the spice Got the kingsford Garlic, Paprika, Onion. I tried it with plain meat to see how much flavor it would add. I followed directions, closed grill top for 15min while the meat cooked. Surprisingly good amount of flavor on the meat. Burns slow and adds aroma/flavor while meat cooks. Would recommend pre-seasoning.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Not too bad It definitely did add some flavor. I would have preferred a stronger infusion but I know not everyone does. If you're looking a good hint of flavor though this is definitely for you. I might buy it again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wow! This take barbecues to the next level! Whoever invented this is a genius. We used this for our burgers on the grill and oh my goodness! It gave hints all three spices to our burgers. But let's talk about just the way it smells while your cooking! Phenomenal! Makes you so hungry and so ready to eat!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The aroma sure hits you in the face! These boosters are so interesting. I’ve never tried anything like this before while bbq’n. We in Texas love to bbq. The spices sure hit you in the face! The smell is amazing. I could tell where it enhanced the flavor in our chicken. It wasn’t too noticeable but it was there. I’d love to try out the other flavors. I’m always open minded for new concepts and I enjoyed my chicken.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Amazing product I received this right on time for my BBQ party. I was heavily dependent on the rubs to get the flavor and also used other form of flavoring products. but this is a game changer, no hassle nad just need 1 or 2, just mix with the coal and you are golden. only 1 thing to remember is if you put alot the flavor is going to be overpowering and plus if you are adding same spices then it can have a really strong flavor which might kill the meat's taste. I learnt it in my first use. all in all a great and innovative product and plus the whole neighborhood knows you are bbqing something awesome. highly recommend for anyone who wants to get flavor without using and mixing all the spices in rub. definitely not a substitue for a rub, but definitely adds the flavor

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great for that added zing! I brought out the Weber charcoal grill out of the garage in the cold because I was itching to these flavor boosters on some ribeyes. These are interesting and definitely add flavor to the meat. I would definitely use these again. The only reason I'm not giving them 5 stars is because I think some might find them a little overwhelming. (Just use less of them)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gamechanger! I've never used anything like the Kingsford flavor booster before. I've always relied on heavy amounts of seasonings to reach my desired tastes. I've recently been concerned with my with my sodium intake. These boosters it's boosters really helped to limit the amount of seasoning I needed for my meat. It was also good for veggie. I definitely want to try out other flavors. This is a really awesome product. Great flavor.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is really cool; adds great flavoring I tried out the Kingsford - Kingsford® Signature Flavors Flavor Boosters — Garlic Onion Paprika and this is really cool; adds great flavoring. We bbq'ed some chicken. I just added some salt and pepper to see if this would add flavoring, and it did! I was impressed! It is very subtle, but the charcoal, smoky flavor with the added hint garlic, onion and paprika was so flavorful. I would definitely buy again, and highly recommend trying.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love! This charcoal added a nice little bit of flavor to the steaks that I was grilling this weekend. The smell was amazing while cooking! I'm pretty sure I made my neighbors jealous. The charcoal burned well also. I'd love to try other flavors, so I can't wait to see what else there is flavor wise. We are big garlic lovers! I recommend giving this charcoal a try!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Was skeptical but ended up surprised! So i was skeptical as to if these truly infused flavor into foods on the grill, and I was pleasantly surprised to find that they do. You aren't going to be hit with the huge, bold flavor like you would putting seasoning directly onto your food, but it's such a nice compliment to add to your foods. I tried chicken and also whole grilled carrots and it worked for both.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from BBQ game changer!! I'm going to be totally honest!! I was really skeptical about this at first. My husband bbq'd chicken and pork. That was the best tasting BBQ meat we've ever had. Even my pickiest eaters were going back in for second helpings. You won't regret getting this. You'll have people wondering what's your secret!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gives my food a lot of depth I tried this out and you can smell the added onion and garlic the minute you open the bag. It ended up adding some great depth to my food. I’m very excited to use this more when we don’t have snow on the ground

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great flavor! I love this idea! It is such an easy way to add flavoring to food. I used about 6 boosters and the flavor was perfect for my chicken and vegetables. I was worried the flavor would be too strong for my kids but they loved it! I can’t wait to try more flavors.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great smell and burn These charcoals will make you hungery just smelling them. They were easy to light and had a great burn time. My neighbor even commented on my dinner before I had even put anything on the grill. The charcoal flavored the chicken without being overwhelming and I will buy again and maybe try out the other flavors.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Smells great! If you're using charcoal, you like smoke flavor. These are a great new idea, for all of your flavor experimenting. Firstly, the way they smell just out of the bag was great. They added a depth of flavor that I will definitely be adding to my arsenal. Can't wait to try the other flavors!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Easy to start and burned great I used the Kingsford Signature Flavor Booster Garlic, Onion, Paparika flavor on my steaks and they were amazing!!! The taste and smell was phenomenal. They burned real well when I started them. I will definitely buy these for all my BBQs in the future

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Spice up that meat Are you tired of the same old grill tasting chicken, burgers, steak or pork? Do you wanna impress your friends and family? Want to keep things a little less messy but yet favorable? I can honestly tell you it's time to make the change. Stop using those old charol pieces. It's time to create magic on your grill without all the hassle. These are hands down the best invention you can have when grilling out. Spring has sprung and our tummies are full with delicious smoked garlic onion paprika chicken. It was a total hit and would absolutely do it over and over again. These have made my job just little easier. It gave pur chicken a fabulous taste and not that charol burnt taste either. They are easy to install and certainly a life changer. I would definitely recommend these to anyone who loved to grill as much as we do. I will definitely look into buying more and different flavors! No cons at this time.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great smell! added extra flavor We added these to the charcoal in our grill the other night when we decided to grill some salmon. The smell as it was cooking was amazing. The flavor wasn't as strong as the smell but our salmon dinner was delicious. Easy and straightforward to use.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from FlavorTown Just one of these briquets on the Weber adds tons of flavor to your food. I used it on hamburgers and cauliflower steaks. Both came out tasting fantastic. I can’t wait to use these in smoker when I’m working on ribs or pork butt..

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Elevated Grilling I love this product! Even if you are not the best griller (I certainly am not!), it makes whatever you are cooking smell amazing. Better than eating my grilled chicken afterwards, I more enjoyed my neighbors walking by with an "mmmm, that smells delicious" look on their faces as I was cooking with it. Using this product is such an easy way to impart flavor to your grilled foods. After your normal charcoal briquets ash over, you simply add a few flavor boosters onto the lit coals and the aroma soon becomes readily apparent. The steady, time-released boosters infuse extra flavor right into whatever you are cooking. It works equally well on meats and vegetables. I used them recently to cook chicken breasts. I was delighted by the results. It was just a hint of added garlic, onion, and paprika without at the same time not at all overpowering my normal seasonings to my chicken. Because these come in a variety, I excited about trying these both on other grilling occasions and trying the other flavor boosters.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Flavor Booster! I did not even know such things as flavor boosters exist! So, I've tried using it and BOOM! It makes grilling so much better! It's absolutely amazing how much more flavor my food gets! I've recently grilled chicken wings for a small party and it was a hit! Everyone was asking how I got such a standout flavor! I am now a total-one-love fan of the Kingsford's Flavor Boosters!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Delicious Kingsford Signature flavor booster garlic, onion, and paprika is my favorite booster on the grill. Not only does it add the perfect amount of flavor to the food but it smells amazing as well. I had my neighbor drop by unexpectedly and I’m convinced it was because he smelled my food on the grill.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Flavor Booster! I am vegetarian and used the garlic onion paprika flavor booster and marinated the vegetables. We then grilled the veggies, the taste was just amazing. It enhanced the taste of the vegetables. Loved the smell while cooking and the taste is just awesome. They gave a nice spicy garlic flavor to the vegetables which I absolutely enjoyed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Smooth burn I received the Signature Flavors Boosters (Garlic, Paprika, Onion) as a product review this is a great addition to charcoal to get a get flavor.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Seasoned Charcoal Boosters My family and I love BBQs meals. After trying the Kingsford Flavored Boosters we were absolutely flabbergasted with the results. The boosters are designed to be placed over your favorite charcoal to add a bit of extra flavor to your cook. Per the package they are 100% real spices in them with a bit of wood added. We tried out the Garlic, onion, paprika flavor boosters. We attempted to grill chicken which we recognized cooked better overall with the boosters. Just in all on its own when started the grill we could already smell the seasons filling the air. Smelled so delicious. This product absolutely gave much more wood smoke flavor which was a plus.
