Saw on another site about a new Kingsford briq. Majority seem to state it doesn't perform as well as the regular. Is this a new formula replacing regular K briqs? Anyone know anything about it?

Great - that's all we need. A little R&D performed by some dumbasses to replace a good product.

I have not used the new product but from what I have read it looks as if they are catering to the grilling crowd, lites off quicker with heat spikes because of that feature.
Sounds like DuraFlame can make big strides if they are smart and understand what we are looking for.

I guess it's time to stock up on the original. You yankees get it on clearance this time of year. We hardly even see a sale.

No sale, but I did order a full pallet from the fleet store. Keep running out and our local wally world doesn't even stock it this time of year.

Looks like the new briqs come in 41lb double pack. Same price as the 48lb double is what was posted. So check the bag weights guys.

Kingsford never goes on sale in the winter, if anything they jack the price higher unless of course you go to Sam's where it is always the same price.

Last sept I bought 2 pallets here in south dakota at wally world and paid under $5.00 a bag. Man when you got a good thing someone always has to screw it up. Now did they change the formula other than the groves on the brick it self?
