Testing Procedure

1. Equal amount of samples per type of charcoal will be tested. (1 Kg.)
2. A Weber Charcoal Grill with cover was used for the test
3. A thermometer was used to monitor the rise in temperature inside the charcoal grill
4. The temperature rise was logged at 5 minutes intervals, for a total period of 3 hrs. & 30 minutes
5. Particular attention and observation will be made during ignition and establishment of ember
6. Occurrence of fire lit, etc will be recorded

Temperature Test
Kingsgrill Quik-Lite Brick Charcoal
 


OBSERVATIONS:

1. From start of fire, approximately 2 minutes waiting time for ember to spread and ignition smoke to disappear and briquettes to be ashed over
2. Once cover was in place, temperature rise was very fast and at 15 minutes, reached 370 degrees F.
3. Temperature rises gradually for about 55 minutes,
4. Highest temperature was at 440 degrees @ 55 minutes from start of fire and stayed for 20 minutes.
5. Temperature went down gradually only after 75 minutes from start of fire
6. Longest temperature rise which is excellent for grilling/cooking
 


Temperature Test
Kingsgrill Quik-Lite Tube Charcoal

OBSERVATIONS:
1. From start of fire, approximately 2 minutes waiting time for ember to spread and ignition smoke to disappear and briquettes to be ashed over
2. Once cover was in place, temperature rise was very fast and at 15 minutes, reached 335 degrees F.
3. Temperature rises gradually for about 40 minutes,
4. Highest temperature was at 415 degrees @ 40 minutes from start of fire and stayed for 10 minutes.
5. Temperature went down gradually only after 50 minutes from start of fire
6. Long temperature rise which is excellent for grilling/cooking

 


Temperature Test
Leading Brand A

OBSERVATIONS: Brand A

1. From start of fire, we added 2 times lighter fluid to pile for non-sufficient ember. 15 min waiting time for flame to die down and charcoal to be ashed over
2. Once cover was in place, temperature started to rise and at 20 minutes, reached 475 degrees F.
3. Highest temperature was at 505 degrees @ 30 minutes from start of fire
4. Temperature went down gradually 20 minutes from start of temp monitor
5. Temperature rises for about 25 minutes, stayed at maximum 490 degrees for 5 minutes and gradually went down, thereafter.
6. Long temperature rise which is good for grilling/cooking
 


Temperature Test
Leading Brand B

OBSERVATIONS: Brand B

1. From start of fire, approximately 10 minutes waiting time for flame to die down and briquettes to be ashed over
2. Once cover was in place, temperature rise was very fast and at 15 minutes, reached 373 degrees F.
3. Highest temperature was at 400 degrees @ 20 minutes from start of fire and stayed for 10 minutes.
4. Temperature went down gradually 15 minutes from start of temp monitor
5. Highest temperature measured almost immediately after ashed over but immediately went down gradually thereafter.
6. Short temperature rise, only about 10 minutes.
 


Temperature Test
Leading Brand C


OBSERVATIONS: Brand C

1. From start of fire, we added 4 times lighter fluid to pile for non-sufficient ember. 20 min waiting time for flame to die down and briquettes to be ashed over
2. Once cover was in place, temperature started to rise and at 20 minutes, reached 110 degrees F.
3. Highest temperature was at 375 degrees @ 45 minutes from start of fire and stayed for 10 minutes.
4. Temperature went down gradually 55 minutes from start of temp monitor
5. Temperature rises for about 25 minutes, stayed at maximum 375 degrees for 10 minutes and gradually went down, thereafter.
6. The difference of 25 degrees maximum temperature between the Matchlight and Original is due to the additional heat from the Lighter fluid.
Please note that the Matchlight is soaked in a lighter fluid.
7. There were 27 pcs. for Matchlight compared to 32 pcs. for the original. The 5 pcs difference is the weight of the lighter fluid.


 


Temperature Test
Leading Brand D

OBSERVATIONS: Brand D

1. From start of fire, approximately 10 minutes waiting time for flame to die down and briquettes to be ashed over
2. Once cover was in place, temperature rise was very fast and at 15 minutes, reached 370 degrees F.
3. Highest temperature was at 395 degrees @ 25 minutes from start of fire and stayed for 10 minutes.
4. Temperature went down gradually 35 minutes from start of fire
5. Highest temperature measured almost immediately after ashed over but immediately went down gradually thereafter.
6. Short temperature rise, only about 20 minutes


 


Temperature Test
Leading Brand E

OBSERVATIONS: Brand E

1. From start of fire, we added 2 times lighter fluid to pile for non-sufficient ember. 15 min waiting time for flame to die down and charcoal to be ashed over
2. Once cover was in place, temperature started to rise and at 20 minutes, reached 475 degrees F.
3. Highest temperature was at 505 degrees @ 30 minutes from start of fire
4. Temperature went down gradually 20 minutes from start of temp monitor

6. Long temperature rise which is good for grilling/cooking


 


Barbeque Test

1. Equal amount of BBQ will be used for the test. Average American Family BBQ (1 Kg.)
2. Equal amount of charcoal will be utilized for the test (1 Kg.)
3. Time interval from starting the fire, placing of BBQ on the grill and time of cooking the BBQ will be recorded
4. Quantify the amount of fuel still left after the cooking and the duration of fuel giving some more heat




 


Cooking Time Chart

OBSERVATIIONS:

1. Shortest cooking time is Kingsgrill Bricks followed by Kingsgrill tubes. Very High heat release because of air holes in the briquettes
2. Because of higher heat release, lesser fuel spent than competition. This means you need smaller amount of fuel.
3. Based on tabulations above, the 1 Kgs Kingsgrill products can cook from 2-3 Kgs of BBQ
4. Highest cooking efficiency means more time to do other household jobs.
