Rated 1 out of 5 by from Basil sage thyme,flavor booster !o Goodness! We bought these last week the Kingsford flavor boosters. Glad that we decided to start them in the charcoal chimney because the way they crackled and ahot out flames would have ignited our meat and Easter dinner would be ruined! Always love Kingsford products but there were dangerous. Just getting ready to bbq our meat now but would give these a negative because of how they burn.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Great idea, terrible taste. I was excited to try these. I ate a bunch of the little nuggets, but they really just taste like wood and sawdust. Also, they're very chewy and got stuck in my teeth. Next time I'll just get some potato chips.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Did not like. Was excited to try these unfortunately they almost ruined our smoker. Clumped up and started a little fire in the smoker.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Smell good, no flavor We smoked pork, chicken, and a beef roast with these pellets and there was no additional flavor like advertised (basil, sage, thyme,) I wouldn't buy this product with the hopes that it'd infuse basil, sage and thyme flavor. The oak pellet themselves were fine.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not for Us So I decided that I wanted to try smoking some meats and was intrigued when I saw this bag of Kingsford Signature Flavor Pellets in Basil, Sage, & Thyme. Since I could only find a huge bag I jumped in feet first. So I learned one big thing and that is that I don't like smoke flavor in my food at all!!! I could taste the subtle herb flavor, but the smoke just killed it for me. If you liked smoked meats you should give it a try. These just aren't for me or my family.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Signature Flavor Pellets I like these pellets. I am not the grill person at our house but these were so easy to use and cook with. They burned at just the right rate and my chicken had a flavor that was totally delicious. And the smell while it was cooking was amazing. I'm sure the neighbors were jealous. I will definitely but these again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Haven't been able to use yet I received a bag of Kingsford Signature Flavor Pellets (Basil, Sage, Thyme) from Tryit Sampling as a free sample. We attempted to use these pellets in our smoker but sadly our smokers heating element but out and we found that out when we turned it on. Will update review when we can use it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome pellets These pellets are amazing. We grilled over the weekend and added these Kingsford pellets and man oh man, the flavors were fantastic!! You can smell the basil, sage and thyme before even opening the bag. These pellets add a whole new dimension of flavor to our food we didn't know we needed! These are so easy to use and our food turned out so good using these. I can't wait to try all the other flavors!! I recommend!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice, subtle flavor! This is the first time I have ever used pellets with my grill. Friends have an actual pellet grill, but I only have a gas grill, so I improvised. I put some of these into an aluminum pan, covered with foil, and poked holes in the top, and placed it directly on the heat plate under the meat on the grate. It imparted a subtle, herby taste to the meat that everyone loved. Very tasty without anything but salt & pepper on the meat.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect boost to grilling When it comes to grilling, I always use charcoal grills instead of a propane grill because of the distinct flavor that grilling with charcoal gives you. Even though charcoal is just the middleman when grilling, nothing beats the traditional flavors that come from using wood chips. Kingsford has always been my go-to brand even more so now since these new flavored charcoal pellets came out. The basil, sage, thyme & oak wood signature blend gives food a smokier boost and much more juicer taste. The pellets are made from better wood and not cheap wood filler, the pellets have real spices infused for flavor. The pellets are blended with basil, sage, thyme and oak wood all of which are a savory blend that really gives a caramelized taste to the food. I used the pellets for grilling during the football games and got nothing but compliments on how delicious and juicy the meat was. I will definitely but buying and using these flavored pellets again and can’t wait to try the other flavors. Highly recommended.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Smells Great! You can absolutely smell these pellets outside of the bag. They smell absolutely amazing. We had a barbecue over the weekend and my husband put these in the pellet grill and we cooked some of the most delicious pieces of chicken I ever tasted. I’m searching for all flavors this weekend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works great I'm so happy I got the Signature Flavor Pellets in Basil, Sage, Thyme. My husband loves his smoker and loves trying new things. You can definitely taste the flavors every time he uses this. Now he is interested in trying the other flavors as well.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from good product I got this Kingsford signature pellets to try out in my smoker - the pellets are the right size to use in my smoker and ignited easily. The flavor they provided was a nice change to the standard wood smoke - I will definitely be using these pellets in my smoking selection. Good job Kingsford - another great product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Makes the food taste so delicious after a nice bbq. Had some steaks and my husband used these when he was cooking the steaks on the bbq. The steak was amazing thanks to these pellets that made them so so very delicious. Absolutely would buy more of them and highly recommended.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My New Grilling Secret I got these for my brother who always claims no one grills like he does. Well guess who was wrong for once. Not only did he enjoy them but as did I and his wife. Also these pellets come in various seasoned flavors so you can always find one that fits your grilling style. When you open the bag you can smell the freshness I am definitely going to be back for more. Also it doesn't take much to make the flavor come alive
