Great review John. I wonder what they do differently to make the cost so much higher in the Competition. Also why we never see any specials on the Competition. Is the difference in the product worth the difference in price?

John, this is an absolute great and thorough comparison of the two products and you are to be commended for taking the time and the labor to perform this side by side comparison. It is fantastic information and I greatly appreciate you performing the tests and publishing your results. After reading this I am inclined to do as you do on my future cooks and that is to blend the two products together to get the advantages of both. Again thanks for this valuable input of information.

Nice review John. I switched from blue bag to comp over the past year and noticed that the ash volume is less at the end of cooks in the WSM. Due the higher burn temperatures there was a bit of a learning curve needed to adjust and hold temps when smoking.

Great review, thank you.

I will echo the question Big Jim had - is it worth the price difference?

Great work John. Thank you very much for this!

I noticed that you said that you use the blue bag (original Kingsford) for smoking/bbq'n and the competition for grilling. And I assume that this is due to (according to your experiment) the original Kingsford (though taking longer to get to same temp) keeping higher temps longer?

I was always told (and I very well may have been told wrong) that hardwood charcoal/"Lump" burned hotter, cleaner and longer. Is this Kingsford competition brand the same as lump charcoal?
