Anyway, I have used it and I really like it. It seems to burn a little bit hotter than the blue bag stuff, and it does give the food a great flavor. I did some chicken leg quarters on the UDS with it and no smoke wood and the flavor was AWESOME. Plus, the blue bag stuff that I always got had a funny smell when it was lighting. The new stuff just smells like wood.

I am going to do a tri-tip with it tomorrow and a brisket on Friday. Curious to see how long my UDS will go with a basket full of this stuff.

Give it a try. I think you'll like it.

Gloria brought me a bag of the regular with mesquite. I was quite surprised, it did burn a little better and you could smell the mesquite, and slightly taste it in the Q.

I finally saw it but it was $9.99 for a 10lb bag at the grocery store, I won't try it at that price as lump costs me under a buck a pound.

Saw some at Home Depot in Paducah, KY but thought I would wait to hear opinions first.

The new Kingsford does burn hotter and faster than the old blue bag. this briquette as stated on the bag in geared toward competition cookers. I will still stay with royal oak for briquettes. way cheaper
DDave am I gonna see you in Anderson at the Norcal sports and rec show in 2 weeks? Ill be competiting in dutch oven and grilling competitions (they call it bbq)

I have used it twice now in my Primo ceramic cooker. It worked very well the ash did not cause any problems (briquettes normally can't be used in ceramics). Cooked both low and slow and grilled worked well in both cases.
The difference between the competition and Blue bag coals is the competition product does not include the coal or limestone, this means the ash is much less and eliminates the petroleum odor when lighting the coals.

Well, I'm not sure. We usually go to the one in Chico although I am not sure what weekend it is.

I'll find out and let you know.
