Saw this at Lowes today.

Anybody try these?
 
I've seen the pellets with the spices, but not the briquettes. I have not tried the pellets though. Something about the spiced pellets just doesn't appeal to me. I might give them a try on something cheap like chicken if I can find them in a small bag.
 
Saw it in the store and thought it was crazy.
Then saw a review from
Tom Horseman. He sells all gimmicky !

Yeah for suckers imho then again people put veggies in the bbq coals too so /shrug lol. I wouldn't bother I do like the Kingsford wood briquettes though.
 
I have seen them around but just shook my head and kept walking. I have been known to buy into marketing schemes but I am passing on this one.

I don't care what spices they use I ain't eating them and doubt they would add any flavor any other way :emoji_grin:

I believe that people who grill/smoke a lot, or even some, won't be buying into the gimmick. I'm not buying it, either. A quick check shows that in addition to the Garlic Onion Paprika, they offer Cumin Chili and Basil Sage Thyme. Hard pass for me...
 
If it is the same cost or less than KBB, I would buy it. Not that it applied anything to the cook..............just makes the neighborhood smell better. :emoji_laughing:

I’ve never been one to add onions, fruits, nuts or berries to the charcoal bed when I bbq… smh.. lol .. I did notice quite a few Bbq Pitmasters contestants who were using Gravity Feed smokers, put onions in the ash bin, along with wood chunks to add to the smoke flavor profile of their bbqs. Does it work?? I have no clue.. I’m guessing Kingsford flavored briquettes would have/give a similar results. I’m guessing again, the more flavored briquettes used, the greater the effect… Then again, if your technique and approach to smoking isn’t broken, why fix it? Anyone willing to give the flavored briquettes a shot and give an honest review? Please do and post your results. I know most will pass, but a few may take one for the team. Good luck..

LOL! It's got great bark.

I watched Tom's video and got turned off immediately by seeing all the white billowy smoke produced by the "flavor" briquettes. I'll pass on these.

Funny you mention that. I use both signature select from safeway and Kingsford wood flavored briquettes. I don't usually see much heavy smoke once it settles to temp....However I used mesquite one's last week and man it was really bad didn't taint the meat but was way heavier than my usual apple or cherry.

I've never tried Safeway's Signature Select or Kingsford wood flavored briquettes. I just Kingsford Original or FOGO lump (when I fell like being fancy) along with wood chunks.
I'm surprised that Tom said he couldn't taste any of the flavors.
I was thinking that with all that white billowy smoke those ribs would taste like the bottom of an ashtray. I guess not.
