I have had an ammo box half full of Kingsford for at least 5yrs. I decided to get rid of some to grill eggplant in my counter grill. It worked fine. I lit them with my propane torch. There was some newspaper from 2005 in the box. I guess I should have used that half can of lighter fluid that I still have in my shed to light it.

Talk about a flashback :laugh:

    Last Sunday, my neighbors to one side were bbqing with briquettes in a cheap barrel grill and the neighbor on the other side had his egg going with lump (I was doing yard work). Smelling both at the same time was quite a contrast.

    Hmmph. Anybody that would use brickettes on an Egg would probably run his ship onto a reef. :ohmy:
