Rated 5 out of 5 by from Flavorful Kingsford products have always been a favorite. When we purchased our first pellet grill we knew we had to use Kingsford pellets. These Memphis BBQ pellets work great. They add a nice flavor when we are smoking meat. Hickory wood blend with a touch of garlic, paprika and rosemary. A 17 pound bag lasts us about 16 hours when smoking meat on low heat. They are easy enough to get into our hopper. The pellets get going really nicely and they burn evenly. I also really like that these pellets are 100% natural. There is nothing artificial added to them. We will definitely continue using Kingsford pellets.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from tons of flavor There is so much flavor in these little pellets. I was thinking there is no way it can taste like the spices in it. Guess what you can taste the spices and not over powering smoke flavor. It didn't take long for them to get going. I'm trying all flavors. I'm combining 2 flavors and see what i come up with. will update later.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great flavor, would get again! I have to admit, I kinda hate getting refills of pellets, and especially trying new ones. But I would buy these again in a heartbeat. Great taste/smoke ring and there were no issues with the smoker loving these pellets.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great flavored hardwood pellets I really liked these hardwood pellets. They were easy to load and burned really evenly. The pellets also seemed pretty solid, not crumbly or powdery. The BBQ flavor isn’t super pronounced, so it didn’t conflict with the other rubs and sauces I used. It definitely does add a nice spice to ribs and chicken, and I imagine it would be good on any protein. Cleanup was a breeze. I’ve got another bag in a different flavor - looking forward to trying the whole line.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best wood chips I got the Kingsford Memphis BBQ wood chips because a friend said it was awesome. I added some to my regular Kingford Charcoal when I was making ribs for a party. The smell as they were cooking was so mouth watering. I couldn't wait to try them. They tasted better than my go to BBQ place. Everyone at the party wanted to know where I got them from cause they wanted to go get some. They couldn't believe that I made them. Thank You Kingford for making me the talk of the party!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Worked great once we got them going Only complaint for us was that it was hard to get the pellets going. But once they started going, worked great. They gave out meat great flavor. We would definitely use again and give it another try. Lasted a long time as well

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good smoke I have a Traeger pellet smoker and they recommend you only use their pellets. I've been wanting to try other brands to see if they work since the Traeger ones are so expensive. The Kingsford pellets had no problem doing the job. They create plenty of smoke And work just fine in the Traeger. I used to use Kingsford charcoal all the time and now I plan on using some more Kingsford pellets.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful pellets! These kingsford pellets are my new favorite! They add the perfect touch of flavor when I smoke my meat. They don’t burn fast so they last me awhile. The bag didn’t have a ton of powder in the bottom which was another plus. I definitely can’t wait to try the other flavors!
