I won’t argue with you over Gas grill or Charcoal, but I will tell you that I personally prefer charcoal. They both have a place in the grilling world, but I love the aroma and flavor that charcoal adds to most any meat that I’m grilling. Have you ever wondered where Kingsford charcoal came from? We all grew up with it, but how did it get started? Here’s what I found….In the early 1920s, Ford had a large plant in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan; to be exact, Kingsford, a town named after Henry Ford’s cousin. Henry Ford was always looking for new ways to combine resources. One day as the Model T cars were coming off the assembly line, Ford noticed many wood scraps being discarded. He proposed that all wood scraps were to be sent to his chemical building to be made into charcoal.
