You’re excited to get the grill out and barbecue but before you get started you need to make sure that you have charcoal on-hand. I don’t know about you, but when I was growing up, Kingsford charcoal was the brand that I saw at everyone’s cookout.

However, these days you are likely to see a number of charcoal brands to choose from at your local hardware store and you might be wondering which one is the best.

I’ve done the hard work of comparing the briquets made by  5 popular brands so that you don’t have to!

I looked at 4 factors:

  • Cost
  • Duration
  • Temperature
  • How Long To Get Clean Smoke

Watch the video to see which brand came out on top, the winner might surprise you!
