Because there are so many "grills" or "pits" in public parks and camping areas, wouldn't it be great if one could purchase a self=starting bar b que kit. I know there use to be small, very small, portable, disposible kits. These were too "individual", did not accommodate more than 2 dinners. Is there something out there? There are thousands of people out there, perhaps millions that would love to grill at the park?
Small, lightable, charcoal packs to group, light and spread under grill for easier lighting, waste reduction and reduction of charcoal dust in or around picnic BBQ area.
"Breathing" holes bored through each charcoal briquette would greatly increase the oxygenated air flowing through the charcoal as well as the exposed surface area for burning. Fire would catch and spread more quickly and each briquette would burn and "whiten" more evenly. Each bag would weigh less because of the charcoal missing from the holes, also resulting in less material use and production cost.
A briquette could either have one hole in the center [o]
or four or five small holes [::],
whichever proves more efficient.
I will have a try with an Idea. Using somthing that usualy thrown away in the south. The Pecan hull after being removed can serve as a brickett for Kingsford. The flavor of pecan smoked meat is normal through out the south. Martha Stewart had two guest from Gorgia with Pecan smoked Ribs. Its safe to say everything comes in threes. We already have Hickory and Mesquite why not Pecan? The hulls are avalable and trees galore in the south. It serves as another choice in our grilling adventures and provides another income to Pecan groves.
Thank You.. Let me know your thoughts Please.
I would love a grid of charcoal that could be placed in standard size grils and lit (maybe with packaging still on like those fireplace logs) To avoid my guy stacking coals (OCD style), lighting them, then moving them to the propper place and finally getting to cooking. I usually avoid grilling unless he'll be home b/c I don't want to hassel with coals. With a place and light type thing I would grill anytime!
I would love to see your charcoal with an appropriate mix of wood chips, or a smoking box with perfectly blended smoking chips to compliment your charcoal, it could be sold as a special package.
My honey is always experimenting with different wood chips on our charcoal grill. We grill almost every night in the summer, so he tries a variety of different amounts, and flavors of chips. Drives me insane! I am not a huge fan of smoked foods, so if there was one, with the "right" amount of flavor for your charcoal (the only kind he uses) I would gladly buy it!
I've used Kingsford charcoal to absorb odors in my car for years. I would like to have individual charcoal odor absorbing packs to slide under the seat in my car to keep odors under control.
How about a single serving type of bag for people going to a picnic or party.
The typical charcol briquette with a slight variation: They burn at different temperatures. A low burning temperature for light grilling (Hot dogs and fish). A medium temperature for most applications (Steaks, pork) and a high temperature for searing and well done beef cooking. Take all of the guess work out of venting and airflow when you use a consistant temperature!
A slow burning briquette. Ideal for smoking applications. Or perhaps a combination of all ideas mentioned.
Package these in 5-gallon plastic buckets with lids and they will sell like mad. Or package them in 5-gallon metal buckets that can be reused for ice buckets or hot ash bucket. They will fly off the store shelves!
I notice when I go to the grocery store, many steaks have a label such as "PURE ANGUS BEEF" "NOLEN RYAN BEEF" - which Nolen Ryan is the owner of the Dallas Cowboys. Okay, so it is a selling point for people shopping in the store to purchase a steak or meat that has a special label on it letting them know it is a product that is backed by a company they trust.
Well, if Kingsford struck some deal were you guys put your label on steaks sold at Wal-Mart, Kroger, Albertsons or Tom Thumb (Safeway) for example you would be really making a smart move. Why? Because everytime someone picked up on of your steaks and saw the Kingsford Label they would automatically think about barbacuing and purchasing other Kingsford products like charcoal to have a BBQ with. Otherwise they might cook the steak on a skillet and not have the charcoaling idea in mind.
I think this is an excellent idea and it is worth a $1,000 prize, which if I won this prize, I would celeberate with my family by purchasing Kingsford charcoal and having a steak party as well as catch up on a few important bills I have. Thank you for letting me share my idea, hope to see your steaks in the stores.
