Bring the experience home with Kingsford Competition Briquets: higher heat that's ready to cook on faster for grilling, searing or slow cooking. Cooking Tips: Kingsford Competition Briquets burn hot and are ready to cook on fast! They provide for a range of cooking methods based on how you arrange the briquets and control the airflow. Grilling: Make adjustments to the grill vents and lid to control the cooking temperature. Cooking with the lid off creates the highest heat levels, while cooking with the lid on and vents closed chokes off the air for slower cooking methods. Searing: Searing is a process that creates a flavorful, caramelized outer crust. Pour briquets on one side of the grill to create cooking zones. Cook each side directly over the briquets and then move to indirect heat to finish. Consider using a marinade for a more juicy interior. Slow Cooking: Slow cooking is a process of barbecuing for long periods of time at low temperatures to add flavor and tenderize. Pour coals on one side of the grill to create cooking zones. Cook over a drip pan with water on the empty side, closing the vents more to achieve lower temperature and maintain more moisture. Made in the USA.
