Quick and easy

Used couple of times with great success in our large bbq/fire pit. we normally get everything cooked for 3-6 people with one bag but do keep some additional charcoal on standby to add if necessary. Good cooking heat and starts burning immediately every time.

Whats wrong with you lot?

This is an instant lighting BBQ and not designed to burn like Chernobyl. It lights very easily, catches first time and gives a good burning heat and time for instant BBQ's. If you want a long burning BBQ then get non instant / lighting stuff or man up and use wood. If you want a quick and easy instant lighting BBQ that lights better and lasts longer than most, use this stuff.

Variable quality

When it is good it is very very good but when it is bad it is horrid... We've been buying this charcoal for years for the convenience, but it could be a lot better. Sometimes you get nice large chunks of charcoal which hold their heat well and burn evenly, sometimes you get a bag of dust which burns down really quickly and needs a lot of briquettes added to get the sausages cooked. And the last bag I had went from a brown paper to a really waxy white paper which smelt very strongly of firelighters. I don't want to cook on something that smells like that!

Fabulous....if you like smoke without fire!

Dreadful idea, they just don't get hot, just a lot of smoke. We ended up tipping real coals on top to get it going. Won't buy again, in fact only bought in error

Rubbish, low heat and didn't last

I've used this style of instant lighting bags for years and this is by far the worst I've ever used! Had to use 3 bags and still didn't get much heat from the barbie. Will be going back to the previous supermarket for the ones I normally buy
