Kingsford® Original Charcoal

Kingsford® Original Charcoal is the taste of summer, and it’s been the gold standard of grilling for nearly 100 years. Each briquet is made with natural ingredients and real wood to ensure the smoky flavor barbecue lovers crave. These newest briquets still feature our signature Sure Fire Grooves® to help coals light faster than ever. In fact, they’re ready for cooking within about 15 minutes—that’s 25% faster*—and they still burn as hot and long as before. See how Kingsford continues to raise the bar on briquets to deliver a better BBQ experience. Available in a variety of sizes, from 3.9-pound bags to 20-pound bags.
