Default Kingsford Competition charcoal briquets at Costco for $12.99

I haven't posted much lately, but thought I would share this. I looked and didn't see this posted already, and I am tired and have worked a lot of overtime lately so I could just be clueless. Apologies if it is a repeat...


Hey there fellow bbq folks, I found a 2 bag pkg of Kingsford Competition charcoal briquets at Costco for $12.99 today. For that price I figured I better pick some up. This will our first time to try their new product. Hope they live up to the marketing.

Good info- I paid the $16.99 last week as well. Will see if they will re-imburse the new difference.

Ok, I have the WSM fired up with the new Kingsford Comp Blend. My initial observations are: There is really no smell when lighting, it is ready much quicker than most briqs. I unofficially observed 10 minutes from lighting to ashed over with 3/4 of a chimney.

Here is a pic in the chimney:


Here is the butt all rubbed up and ready for the WSM:

Picked up the two-bag pack yesterday at Costco for $12.99...along with a pair of jeans for $12.99 and two racks of spares and two racks of loin back ribs! Have other fuel to use up before comp briqs but will get to them pretty soon.
