Kingsport is King!
Grilling is easy and enjoyable thanks to Kingsport! The charcoal briquettes are a good size and cook food well on the charcoal grill. The food comes out smoky and perfect thanks to Kingsport. The price is affordable and it lasts awhile too. I highly recommend this to others!

      Very nice product. Great for bbq.
        long term user
        Attached are pictures of my club's bbq 8/28/2021. Here are a few facts. We racked 518 chicken halves averaging 1.523 pounds or 24.4 ounces each. What a slab of meat. Total of meat weighed 790 pounds but only 520 pounds charcoal, that's 26 20# bags. That means it only required 0.659 # to grill a pound of chicken for 2 hours. Chicken bbq is a major fundraiser for Mount Sidney Ruritan Club as we have monthly bbq dates to grill approximately 4500 -5000 during the grilling season. Kingsford has done a good job for us over the years and purchase 5-6 pallets for the year. Thank you Kingsford, Wayne BBQ Chairman

          It’s not the same!! Changing brands!!
          The last six bags of Kingsford charcoal I have bought burnt out extremely fast!! I thought maybe just a bad bag or two but the quality is nowhere near what it used to be! Not sure if they changed their process or what but I’m definitely not buying anymore. After 35 years of what used to be a great product I’m no longer going to put myself through this aggravation!! Good by Kingsford, time to find a new favorite!

We look forward to chatting with you.
            Doesn't work for me
            As you can see on the pictures, 3/4 of my coals were cold (my hand is on the grill LOL and i would say only 5 coals became red on the opposite side...maybe this just one bag was spoiled and im the unlucky customer who got it!

              Lights easier and burns
              Lights easier and burns better than the more expensive stuff. Every time I try something different, I wonder why I did. Great product with a affordable price. Will continue to buy more in the future.

                  Kingsford…. 2-20 lb.Bags, these larger size Bags are great way to stock up on charcoal. I just bought a Weber Kettle Master touch at my local HD and I can’t wait to try it out. I’ve been using Kingsford charcoal for many many years and it doesn’t change its still the same great charcoal that it has always been, it lights up fast and hot and burns very even plus it snuffs out easily, I’m a big believer in reusing charcoal and I really can’t tell the difference in cooking between new and old briquettes so I use every last ash, It takes about 15 minutes to get blazing hot briquettes and you are on your way to a great cook.
