I've never really understood the benefits of charcoal (vs gas), until now! The hickory smell and flavor is deliciously potent. This charcoal is now a staple when we grill!

I really do like these briquets and only took a star off because they burn out a little fast. But, the flavor they add to the meat is fantastic. They give a smoky hickory flavor to whatever you are barbequing and you can't beat it unless you use a smoker. The flavor comes pretty close. I barbeque a lot, all year round, so I will be using these often.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0Â by Doc766 A great way to add that sweet, hickory aroma
Kingsford Charcoal has been a favorite of mine for years and I couldnât wait to try these ribbed charcoal briquettes with hickory chips embedded within. I started about 15 briquettes in a coal starting canister and got a rapid start with a MAP gas torch. The coals were ready in about 10 minutes and provided so much heat I had to spread them evenly across the bottom of my grill to prevent hot spots. The sweet, hickory aroma was very pleasing and lasted for over an hour until the coals subsided. I was able to grill my main course meats and vegies with enough heat left in the briquettes for wieners and sweet âpotato steaks for the kids. I enjoyed the fact that I didnât have to purchase and add hickory chips separately. I intend to stay with Kingsford Hickory Charcoal Briquettes for as long as I remain grill--master in my backyard.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0Â by Bbqjoeavg My first disappointment
I have never bought any other brand if charcoal than kingsford, which is why i was so disappointed in the bag of hickory i bought recently.
The bag touts how fast the charcoal is ready and how hot it is. Nothing could be further from the truth in my experience. It always had to be started at least twice, often three times.tonight for example it took 40 minutes to cook 2 thin hanburgers. Very disappointed.

It's hard not to like a Kingsford product and this one is no exception. I used these hickory briquets in my Brinkmann Smoker (also purchased at Home Depot) on a pork shoulder and the flavor was wonderful. I added a few hickory chunks as is my normal practice, but the flavor was twice as good. They were easy to light and they put out good heat. Otherwise, just about the same great experience as I have had with the original Kingsford briquets in the past. I'll use these again!
