Be warned and watch out.
Some one will say stop burning coal. It is BAD for the environment, it is killing the ozone.

We got a few of them couple years ago and they're useless, I wouldn't recommend them. They can't even keep the bbq warm and they only last for a bit.

Give 1 a try before the end of the season before stocking up

I hear you haha.

My reply to them is so is methane, and we all have to pass gas at some point in time haha.

I used these on a few smokes and have not had any issues. For this price, use a whole bag if need be.
And definitely agree with others, not recommended for longer smokes.

Just be mindful these are pretty much one time use so if you are expecting to reuse some of these later...forget it. They crumble to ashes. These really are by far the worst briquettes I have ever used but I say this because I used these for longer cooks and the amount of ash and briquettes used was pretty crazy. They tend to burn up quick. In terms of weight and size, they are a bit smaller than the Kingsford.

Any bets on which one of us is gonna go up in a massive inferno with the stock pile we will amass? I am already into my second bag of the royal oak briquettes...I can't stop grilling!

For the price, light 'em up!

I bought an entire pallet of 38 of the Kingsford premium briquettes and the grilling has been amazing - no idea why I never knew charcoal was that much better than propane for flavour. A bunch of my friends are also now new converts!

Hopefully my home doesn't go up in flames for the sake of BBQ 🤣

Hot price. Last year around this time I remember they were selling the 8lb bags at $2.94 at the Loblaws by Markville Mall. Got like 8 bags back then but didn't BBQ much this year. :(

I bought these a while ago as they were on sale and then tried them on my charcoal grill. They were absolute garbage. They wouldn't even stay on long enough after lighting them multiple times, I even put a bunch of paper under the briquette mound and lit it too and they still wouldn't light. Honestly I never expected to have to deal with something that didn't work at all!!. I had to go out and buy another brand and use those ones as the majority of briquettes to get the grill going. What a disappointment this purchase was!

I used these for smaller BBQs at the park.
bought a small bbq from dollarama a year ago, brought some small pieces of wood and would light the wood, add the coals and then let it go out.
Was able to bbq skewers and slim sirloin steaks, hamburgers without a problem.
Didnt try on anything that needed more time such as chicken breast.
