Exclamation Found on self at Walmart - New ~ Original Kingsford

OK this was as far away from the normal place they have charcoal as possible in the store - in the food section near picnic /party supplies

although there are many of the new kingsford briquet's all over the garden area and where they stock the BBQ NONE of this stuff pictured were stocked there or displayed --- ???

we know that walmart has very distinct plans for lay outs and where items MUST be placed and they send out MAPS to each store to indicate where EVERY ITEM HAS TO BE --- then whats up ??


I took the pic - left the goods - will grab a bag on the next trip before this week end

Man for the cost of gas I would have just bought 2 bags right then. I wonder if they are just touting Being the original manufacturer of briquetts or in fact the old style/compisition.
Did you know Kingsford charcoal was a biproduct of manufacturing process at Ford Motor company?


And has been since the 1920s, when Henry Ford learned of a process for turning wood scraps from the production of Model T's into charcoal briquets. He built a charcoal plant, and the rest is history.
The Kingsford Company was formed when E.G. Kingsford, a relative of Ford's, brokered the site selection for Ford's new charcoal manufacturing plant. The company, originally called Ford Charcoal, was renamed Kingsford® Charcoal in his honor.
Today, the Kingsford Products Company remains the leading manufacturer of charcoal in the U.S. More than 1 million tons of wood scraps are converted into quality charcoal briquets every year.
Barbequing with charcoal has become immensely popular since Ford's time, and even today, more people prefer the taste of charcoal-grilled food to gas. *
Bring some of that deliciously smoky flavor home today and taste for yourself how superior charcoal-grilled foods can be. Kingsford products are available nationwide at grocery stores, mass retailers, drugstores, warehouse clubs and home centers.
*In a blind taste test sponsored by the Kingsford Company, 2 to 1 participants preferred the taste of charcoal-grilled food to gas. The research was conducted with 796 men and women ages 18-54 in Sacramento, Dallas, Tampa and Chicago in June 2000.

Participants were asked to compare chicken, steak or hamburgers cooked over Kingsford Charcoal to those same foods cooked over gas. Across all meat types, most people liked charcoal-grilled foods better. Tasters commented that meat grilled over charcoal “has a real barbecue flavor,” “has a smoky flavor” and “tastes like it was grilled over a real wood fire.”

ITs the new kingsford in a retro bag. I bought a few bags last time i was in wally world. It was on pallets where they normally keep the kingsford. Remember K side up facing north is the proper way to get a good clean burn and no ash.

yes I was aware of Ford being the inventor of briquettes from scrap.

he also required that his suppliers "package" or Crate the supplies he bought from them in specific woods and sizes

like the crate must be constructed of 4 foot long by 6 X1 inch oak boards ( for instance) the reason behind it was that the crate materials were also used in making the cars and were in essence free and in the proper rough dimensions for the destined part that they would become. some cutting and shaping and the parts were done and practically free. plus the saw dust and scraps became a charcoal briquette that was sold at a profit


I pass by that store 2 times a day ( commute mod) and drive a hybrid ( long commute mod)

the bags seem to tout being the old stuff --

now I have a real bag of the original (several actually)

what would be an accurate way to do a side by side on these --

The only way that I could conceive of a fair test would be side by side eggs on the same butt ( bag butt halves) ... and since you the only two egg person I know local would you want to take a crack at it ?

the other retro bags seem to all mention the grooves

no indication of grooves on these bags

the Spanish just says "charcoal briquettes"

they were nearly $7 a bag if I recall right 6.79

Nope no mention of grooves but they are there, on every briquette in the bag.
Also look at the text at the top of the bag same as the fire groove one. "Ready Faster. Burns Longer"

Looks like one of these bags at wally world will be developing a hole in it ( check for grooves mod)

that one looks like it is recklessly perched on the shelf and could suffer the Humpty Dumpty mod

heard over the PA at Wally World! Clean up on aisle 10

This is definately the new crappy kingsford with the grooves in a different bag. Dont waste your time taking a trip to WalMart to pick it up, unless you need charcoal and like Kingsford. There is no hope of the old stuff coming back. The 18lb bag should of thrown it off too. Stupid grooves, longer and hotter my ass. Just saves them 2 lbs a bag!

Those sunzabeeches at wally-world tricked me too! About 3 weeks ago I saw those bags and I almost cried tears of joy! I took 4 bags home only to find they were the new stuff!
