really the only product i use. i cook 3-2-1 ribs, rib-eye, skirt steak, veggies , a bunch of other food. i use it on my oklahoma joe smoker, chargriller outlaw and a small portable chargriller. people saying that its not good , don't know what they are doing (now the product that i would say burns too fast is the charcoal with mesquite in it.- i only used it once)
not my beloved blue bag
Been defending Kingsford as the preferred BBQ fuel over Wood Pellets and Wood for years, but my recent purchases do not reflect the product I grew to love. It's taking longer to start, isn't burning as hot and generates a lot of ash. It's fine for typical backyard cookouts, but if you are more adventuresome (ribs, steaks, slow cooking) the current product is not what I remember. Where in the past I used to be able to get Blue Bag close to 600 degrees to sear meat, it's now closer to 450. The ash generated is enough to choke out other coals. I'm using Blue Bag in both the traditional Weber Kettle and a championship grade smoker. I haven't measured the time to start, but it sure seems like it's taking a lot longer to get the red coals needed to really do the job right. I've refused to go the wood route, but it's something I'm going to need to ponder. It's not worth having a championship smoker if the fuel doesn't get the job done.
This charcoal burns the best you can’t beat it top notch product
Poor heating quality throughout the meal.
Bought a new Weber grill a week ago thinking I would like to get into charcoal grilling again.Picked up a bag of Kingsford Original Charcoal.I am very unhappy with the heating time of the charcoal.Heated up hot for the first 15 minutes and after that could not get anymore heat out of the coals.
Ol’Blue is not as good
The coal is not the same as last year. In my Weber kettle it will not burn above 400 degrees. At first I thought it was because I bought at Sams club, but the 2 pack from Walmart and Lowe’s burns at same thermosticaly controled rate of less than 400 degrees. Forget about getting the sear. Also , after a cook, the coal ash does not disitegrate, you have to remove by hand, and creates a gummy residue on kettle surfaces.. After 15 years of ol Blue I’m moving on. Will have to find other brand to meet my grilling needs.
