What I love about these charcoal is that you don't need lighter fluid to get these babies going. They are already drenched in fluid so just light and watch them do their thing. Great barbeques year round for me. Happy grilling.

The whole concept of match-light charcoal would mean that one doesn't have to use anything but a match to light it, right? Apparently not this stuff, where marketing must have gotten a bit too confident for the development team to back up that claim. A half pack of matches, a good 3 minutes of a hand lighter, and a few fistfuls of newspaper were wholly insufficient to generate even the slightest flame from these dudes. It should be noted, this was a just-opened package. Oh, you say the charcoal needs to be stored inside, per the useless YouTube tutorial? Great, except a) I'm not storing anything this supposedly flammable in my house, and b) that advice is nowhere on the bag. Prospective buyer, do yourself a favor: get a gas grill or a chimney and some real charcoal. If you're going to spend a half hour prepping a grill, may as well make it worth it.

I should have remembered from years ago that this charcoal does not burn as long as regular charcoal. I like KIngsford brand very much but I really have to say that the regular charcoal is much better. It burns hotter and stays lit much longer.

This is how to start it, never have I had a problem starting this charcoal. Take a small mini propane tank (find at Walmart)with a torch that lights with a click of a button. Bam! that's it! Lights it and never have problems with it staying lit or going out!

I just bought a bag of match light because the coals I started with by Kingsford didn't all burn and the meat I was cooking needed more time on the grill. I started with a clean grill and piled them, and went to light them and nothing happened. I tried many times if one lit it wouldn't spread, and would go out. Don't waste your money.

Oh sure it lights without lighter fluid however they go out as soon as the lighter fluid is gone. They do not even burn all the way through. Very disappointing as this use to be a good product. I will never ever buy again.

Loved how fast you could light the coals. Easy to use. Only use what you need or add what you one from the start, if you have to add more it will smell like lighter fluid for a bit. But still would use again

Food tastes like lighter fluid

NYC2NJ - 10 months ago, Verified purchaser
I’ve used the original Kingsford coals (blue and white bag) and really liked it. One warm winter day I’ve been craving bbq ribs and didn’t have enough of the reg bag of charcoal so I went to My local store and all they had was bags of the match light. Not wanting to drive around looking for bbq charcoal, I grabbed a bag to try. What a big mistake! All 3 slabs of my ribs tasted like lighter fluid. Such a disappointment and totally ruined my perception of the brand.
1 reply from Kingsford team - 10 months ago
Oh no, we're sorry to hear that your food tasted like lighter fluid using our Match Light Charcoal. While we can't pinpoint the actual cause, if the briquets aren't mostly ashed over or the flame hasn't died down before food is placed on the grill, the food can pick up a lighter fluid taste. We'd like the chance to bring back your confidence in our products and would love it if you'd give us a call at 800-232-4745 with this reference number 220216-000420, so we can.

I used to use the regular charcoal, but decided to give this match light a try. It did not light at all. The bag has not been opened and it was stored in my cool garage. I stacked the briquettes and lit from the bottom corners. Absolutely nothing happened on either side. So of course I had no choice but to use lighter fluid. I hope my food doesnt taste like lighter fluid because if its already infused in the coal they should light right up and I should have to use lighter fluid. But nothing happened. I am highly disappointed!
