Absolutely terrible, completely ruined our evening, food had to be cooked in the oven. Do not buy.
Worst Charcoal you can buy.
Not fit to be sold! This is absolutely the worst Charcoal I have ever used, nothing but smoke which was embarrassing as some neighbors probably were not far off calling the fire brigade. Had to put it out in the end due to the amount of smoke.
A terrible product - it's not lump wood it's the left over shards from production - heat gone in 15 minutes - the buyer has been sold a kipper by the manufacturer selling all the leftover residue to Tesco ! Awful !

Used to be a good starter for the BBQ but lately it takes over 45 minutes to stop the fumes from the fuel. Then it's too late to use. Will go back to fire lighters and decent charcoal.
USELESS. Didn't heat up enough to cook anything on. Ended up cooking everything indoors.
Lights well. Keeps heat. Could be bigger.
I'm not sure what other people are doing wrong but these worked well for me. Lit straight away, had a covering of ash in 20 minutes and remained hot for 1.5 - 2 hours. The price is good but I think the bags could easily be made 1kg each rather than 850g to bring them in line with similar products.
Great value for money
Easy to use, lit first time without any fire lighters. Burns hot and lasts a long time. Good sized bags.
it sets on fire,
clearly, people have had different experiences to me but it burned fine. despite being instant light I found it burned quicker when heating half the bag in a chimney starter. once that gets to heat chuck the rest of the bag on top and it turns grey and ready to cook on fairly fast. it's no fancy BBQing for sure but it works for burgers
Well I had a barbecue in mind - silly me
So after overpaying for this none ESG friendly method of cooking. It failed miserably to cook my chicken kebabs. My husband encouraged the product to burn with the leaf blower and even that did not work. Only by this if you fancy a braised lettuce. For cooking food, it is quite frankly as much use as looking at the food and hoping it will cook. Tescos, sort this out.

The quality is appalling! Have you changed supplier in the last few months as it used to be better. Firefighters needed and it still does not light. You are basically selling bags that immediately turn to dust. Can this be sorted with your supplier?
