Fed Ex Came...

And just dropped of my bag of KF Competition Briquettes! Can't wait to test them out...I will document EVERYTHING with video and pictures! Of course I will talk about it on the radio show as well...perhaps a round table for some of the other who have gotten it as well.

I'm sure you have already thought of this - but is there any way to test the briquettes side by side with regular kingsford? Something like a head-to-head match in the same type of smoker?

What's the scoop with "Competition Briquettes" ? Are they bigger? Or what's the deal.

They are basically the same size as regular Kingsford, but they are compressed Lump Charcoal from my understanding, with a starch binder and none of the "stuff" that's in regular Kingsford.

I'm still waiting cause I'm almost out of Rancher.

If they are like Rancher they will:
1. Light easy
2. burn longer
3. have no foul smell
4. leave less ash
5. and be consistant from cook to cook

They should work perfectly using the so called minion method enabling them to migrate from coal to coal for LONG slow burns. They should also be able to get real hot for close up and personal quick steak sears. You will also be able to add a wood chunk or two to the pile and get the flavor you want in your meat.

And. When you pay for 20 lbs, you get 19.99 lbs of good fuel.
