Rated 4 out of 5 by from Add pep to your grill The Kingsford Memphis BBQ flavor charcoal was a great time. Easy to light, and stayed burning for a very long time. The smell of the spices were very apparent, and added great flavor to my protein. I still suggest seasoning your protein with the same or similar spices in it like garlic, paprika, and rosemary. I've never seen anything quite similar on the market. Overall, a fun and tasty experience!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very good I bbq some chicken. These were very good. They had a good smell fresh out of the bag. They lit real easy with the regular charcoal and lasted for a very long time. I cooked for about an hour and half and they never broke apart only got a little smaller. You could taste the flavor in the meat. It had a nice rustic taste really giving it a smokey taste.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great flavor I typically don't do charcoal because the flavor is bleh. That was not the case in this instance. I can't wait to try the other flavors. I will never use the liquid smoke before trying this again. The only drawback is that the chips burn up really quickly, not affording you much cooking time.
