My local supermarket is fully stocked with it. Kingsford still has it listed on their homepage. Maybe your store stopped carrying it.

Ditto here. My store just restocked it.

I like it & use it.

in LA only the home depot carries the competition bags. i know the blue bag contents has been changed. my weber use to get 3 reheats on the coals. now its 1.5 reheats with half of those coals gone.

foolish consistency is the hobglobin of narrow minds....kingsford

It's all over here. Unfortunately. I got two 18 lb bags of regular Kingsford today, the only two they had. They had plenty of the competition though.

I did not have good results from the one bag of competition I used.

Agreed. The blue bag has gone down hill with the offering of the comp. K. It is my belief that the comp. K is what the blue bag used to be, and the blue bag is now a lower quality product (for the same price as they used to sell quality charcoal for)

I just picked up 2 bags of the Comp K at my local Home Depot today.

It is very different than the regular K... It has no off smell when igniting and actually smells like wood burning.

I like the Comp K, but the price is what keeps me from buying too much of it. Especially when I can get Royal Oak for $4.50 a bag everyday at Menards...
