OAKLAND, Calif., April 22, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — Kingsford, America’s favorite wood-fired fuel for more than 100 years, is introducing 100% Hardwood Pellets. Expanding beyond charcoal, Kingsford has added Hardwood Pellets to its roster of high-quality, wood-fired fuel. Kingsford pellets are made with all-natural ingredients and absolutely no fillers, preservatives or binders to deliver more hickory, cherry and maple wood flavor. The brand is so confident in the 100% flavor delivered when smoking or grilling with new Kingsford pellets they’re offering a money back guarantee* if you’re not convinced.

To share the great news, Kingsford drafted football stars, George Kittle and T.J. Hockenson who bring 100% to everything they do to star in the launch video.

«When it comes to flavor, why settle for anything less than 100% like you do with those other guys?» said pro tight end, George Kittle. «I give it my all, whether I’m on the field or firing up the grill in my backyard, and so does Kingsford, delivering 100% flavor with its new 100% Flavored Hardwood Pellets.»

Unlike other flavored pellets on the market containing mystery wood blends and even flavored oils**, Kingsford 100% Flavored Hardwood Pellets are made with 100% of the named wood. Plus, they work in any pellet grill, so grillers don’t have to sacrifice quality or flavor, they can simply focus on smoking the best meat.

Kingsford 100% Hardwood Pellets are available in five flavors:  

  • Kingsford® Classic Wood Pellets – a blend of Hickory, Oak and Cherrywood
  • Kingsford® Signature Wood Pellets – a blend of Mesquite, Oak and Cherrywood
  • Kingsford® Hickory Wood Pellets – 100% Hickory Wood
  • Kingsford® Cherry Wood Pellets – 100% Cherry Wood
  • Kingsford® Maple Wood Pellets – 100% Maple Wood

«We’re proud to use 100% hardwood in our pellets and want people to try for themselves – risk free,» said Ram Gopalakrishnan, Marketing Director at Kingsford. «Kingsford gives it 100% when creating new products to ensure the use of top-quality ingredients and unmatched flavor, because no one fires up the grill with the goal of only getting 50% flavor.»

If you’re not 100% satisfied with Kingsford 100% Hardwood Pellets, visit between now and June 1, 2021 for the money back guarantee.
