Kingsford Charcoal

Anybody try the new Kingsford yet? There was a lot of discusion about it over at tvwbb. Seems to be quite a few who don't like it. I'm gonna get me a bag when I run out and give it a try.

I've done 2- 8 hour cooks with it . It lights a little faster but doesn't burn as long. I think they should have just left it the way it was.

I used a half a charcoal ring on the pork butts last week, and the new stuff all by itself with the pastrami. Had no problems getting WSM up to temp and holding temps at desired number.

Did notice that it does burn faster than the old Kingsford. Had to add more fuel to the pork butts after only 12 hours, where the old stuff I could usually get 16 or so.

Hmmm I was at HD a few days ago. Seems like I need to go back and buy what is left of the old Kingsford. Worth it you think?
