So, you’ve got the basics down… 

You know how to streamline your process and set yourself up for success. From bringing meats to room temperature before grilling to keeping a stash of your grill essentials within reach, you know how to maximize the fun and minimize the effort on the grill. 

But how about maximizing the flavor? 

It’s one thing to use the right combinations of seasoning and marinade in your food preparation. But when you can amplify flavors with your fire, you can engage all your senses and enhance the food’s flavor profiles. An easy way to do this is with Kingsford® Signature Flavors. These flavor boosters are available as stand-alone additions (which can be added to any pre-lit charcoal), or they come combined in a pre-mixed charcoal briquet bag; they also come as hardwood blend pellets. The flavor profiles include garlic-onion-paprika, basil-sage-thyme, and cumin-chili, all of which can be used with a wide variety of proteins and vegetables to build on your own seasoning. Made with 100 percent real spices, Kingsford® Signature Flavors unlock rich aromas that enrich your grilling experience.

Smell is an integral component of taste.  

Your taste buds alone allow you to process five basic concepts: sweet, sour, bitter, umami, and salty. When the sense of smell is activated, the unique aromas help us process what an ingredient tastes like in totality. A combination of color, texture, temperature, taste, and smell is what gives you the full-bodied sense of explosive flavor. Talk about a sensory experience! The Kingsford® Signature Flavors will enhance your grilling experience by adding an incredible flavor and smell to your heat source.

Picture it—the mouthwatering scent of your favorite spice combinations manifesting just shortly after you light your grill. Your friends and family congratulate you on the mouthwatering creations you’ve got going on in your grill of choice. You’ve done the hard work of sourcing your meats and veggies, picking the right seasonings, and adding each food item to the grill at just the right time. Now it’s time to sit back and let your fire do the rest.  photo of kingsford productsKingsford Signature Flavors charcoal briquets, flavor boosters, and hardwood blend pellets release aromas that enhance any food’s flavor profile with every grill-out.
