What is the best BBQ charcoal?
Every RV lover I’ve ever met also happens to be a lover of good barbecue. A good barbecue requires the best BBQ charcoal. For many years I have typically used Kingsford match light coals, and have been pretty happy with them. However, I recently tried some Duraflame Instant Lighting Charcoal that I saw at an event and I have to say, they are pretty awesome!
Normally I wouldn’t claim something as the best, but the innovative quick sear design of the Duraflame Instant Lighting Charcoal really makes this product stand out from its competitors. With a unique hexagon shape, surface area is maximized and air is allowed to easily flow through the internal hole and along the outside. I’m no scientist, but it’s obvious to me that this produces a significantly higher heat than other brands’ standard coals, as well as getting them to that heat much quicker.
The best part is the taste! If you’re a fan of charcoal cooking, and hate the taste of propane cooked meats, then you’re going to love these coals. You may not be an expert on the grill, but it’s fast and easy to get steakhouse quality without too much effort. Once the coals are hot, spread them out and put your food on the grill. I prefer one-flip cooking where I cook one side for a pre-determined length of time and then flip it to cook the other side. This allows the heat to penetrate and gives great sear lines.
Please note, these Duraflame instant light charcoals burn at a much hotter temperature than your standard briquets. It is a good idea to adjust your cooking time and grill height to accommodate for the variance.
Where to buy Duraflame Instant Lighting Charcoal?
I don’t know if it’s because everybody thinks these are the best bbq charcoals on the market, or if stores don’t stock them, but I’ve had a hard time finding these during my travels. Fortunately, Amazon now stocks them from a few vendors, including Amazon Prime. Normally, I would never buy charcoal off of the internet, but having the best bbq charcoal on hand at all times is a MUST, especially in my RV.
Duraflame Instant Lighting Charcoal Reviews:
Another thing that I would normally do before making a purchase is to look up as many reviews as possible, good and bad. I do this to get a sense of the product and decide if it’s worth spending money on. However, because the Duraflame coals are so new, there don’t seem to be many, if any, reviews online. When I get some more from Amazon, I’m hoping to create a video to show you guys how much I like this new coal.
