I have been useing comp. charcoal for 4 months now without a problem. No funny taste or smell. I would say it was the meat.

Same thing happened to me last week. Same rub, same technique, same lump/wood combo - the ribs just tasted flat - I'm chalking it up to the meat.

I've used the K-Comp many times with no problems at all.
I didn't see any info on your cooking equipment or technique. An airflow problem could be to blame. The difference between a hot clean-burning fire and a choked off dirty fire will make a world of difference.

I quit buying "enhanced" ribs too.
I found the majority of the cryovac packages are enhanced (look for the small print on the package). It is a saline (SALT) solution 12-15%, so it is basically brining & curing your ribs - spell that H A M

They do this to preserve the ribs for shipping/storage, and so this what you will find at your most of your national markets (Costco, Walmart, etc..)

Sorry never seen enhanced ribs at Costco. I also have not experienced anything foul with the competition briquettes. It could be a bad rack of ribs or I hate to say it, user error, no offense, it happens (poor airflow, too much white smoke, etc.)

I haven't had any problems with Kingsford Competition. So far I've cooked ribs, chicken, and butt using it with absolutely no flavor problems.
