They're great for Q as far as I know,done numerous cooking sessions and everytime I use the briqs it brings a smile to my face...people over here love the stuff.
If I wanted something just as good or better I'd probably use good lump charcoal...which I haven't tried out yet.

I think they'd be great for Q if you can keep them burning slow. I assume they'd burn for a REALLY long time at low'n'slow temps.

i really love the stuff. i used to be purely anti briquette and 100% lump nazi, but this stuff just rocks.

Like Phu said, MANY of us here use the coco stuff! It's great for high and fast but also just as good for low and slow!

Has anyone used these in a UDS? My UDS doesn't like lump for some reason. This sounds like it would be a good alternative to getting more wood smoke flavor and less Kingsford flavor.

Based on what I have read here, I am not seeing any reason for me to go out looking for them.

Can somebody change my mind? Why would I want to even try to find some?

I do know that coconut shells burn super hot. When you light a shell, you have to step back from the heat.
My brother in law cooked a whole hog in 3 hours using coconut shells
