Default Kingsford Charwood

For the first time ever, one of our local groceries has 5 bags on the shelf, 10lbs for $5.99. Is it worth it?

Like anything else, you'd think that prices vary from store to store and area to area. I get 2 -10lb. bags pakaged together for 10.99 from our value priced market.

Never used it but have heard that it is really sparky when it lights. I think Naked Whiz had a review on his site that mentioned he used it for grilling and got charcoaly soot on his food.....fwiw....

Here's a pic from the NW website....

I've only tried it once, so far, because I like the other wood chunks that I've found since. But I was told to soak in water first, maybe that's why I didn't get sparks.
Friday night I saw some bags of Jack Daniel's Oak Barrel wood chips is now being sold locally, but I haven't tried it yet. I bought some but I haven't tried it yet. It definately smells like Daniels that's for sure. Has anyone tried this yet?

Steppenwolf.....This is a lump charcoal from Kingsford-- is that what you tried, or was it wood chips/chunks to burn? I haven't tried this brand charcoal yet, myself.....

I think it's decent stuff. It's pretty dense as compared to most other lump so you get a pretty good burn time. It also has a unique flavor that I like. It is a bit sparky when it is first lighting but that goes away once the coals are fully lit. I've grilled with it many times and haven't had a problem with soot getting on my food.

The picture above is also misleading because they used a very slow shutter speed when taking that picture (he admits this in the article). I would recommend at least giving it a try.

Glad you asked, what I have isn't the same thing. I don't remember the brand name, being here at work, but it's called charwood. Basically, it's like wood chunks but sorta pre-blackened. Sorry about my mistake.

I've already been through a bag and it cooks well, but man don't have any dry leaves under your pit when it's going. Sparks is right!!!

Thanks, Azinine....I have no experience with the product and that's the only info I've seen about it. Been tempted to pick some up, but I can't really find it in too many places. I've been able to find the Duraflame products recently and will be testing them out more. The lump was really light...not dense. I actually like the hardwood briqs, I think.....
