I believe The Original Charcoal Company already has that product in place...with the RANCHER hardwood lump briquette. The only way the KF product could be better the the OCC product would be if it is exactly like the Rancher BUT is available at all stores and is FAIRLY priced! Otherwise, I'll stick to the Humphrey's lump briquette I found at the supply store.

I WISH the Rancher was more widely available...that stuff was AWESOME!

Well if it is what it is, I would think national distribution is the key.

And by the way Mr. Rempe, how come you weren't all over this. With your ear to the ground of the BBQ world as it is, you should have been breaking this story weeks ago and keeping your loyal followers up to date.

To be honest, I knew about this a while back but I was sworn to secrecy from some of the bigger names in the biz as they were afraid of the repercussions...this is why I am being very coy in my posts as well.

By the way, I am not that big of a fan of the KF products so, unless they are looking to sponsor a show, I am not very interested in promoting their products as it would bring a track record of being over-priced and an average product at best.

Let's see what the product is and then we can bash me some more!

well, whoever guessed it was lump charcoal pressed into uniform size, was right.. called Competition Briquets..odd spelling, but that was on the bag.. burns hotter than the blue bag stuff, and just as long.... no discernable aroma to it.... still has a filler to bind it, but it puts off less ash than the blue bag stuff... about a $1 more a bag than the blue bag... Home Depot will carry it all over the nation... anyhow, it was a good time, and good food.. Chris Lilly's new book will be out May 12th

Sounds like New, Improved Kingsford, but they're keeping the old, inferior Kingsford too. I wonder if they have it in mind to phase out the old stuff.
