Description: It was time. She'd fought against it for so long, but she knew it was winning. Cancer is an insidious disease and pancreatic cancer is one of the worst. Her profession was writing and as she sat in a wicker chair, wearing her Gabby Maria Penguin Love Crew Socks, she determined to write something – anything. On the back porch, she spotted the barbecue grill and bag of Kingsford Charcoal Briquettes. “Why not,” she thought, “briquettes too have a story.” So she began. “It’s 1919, and Henry Ford is turning out a million Model T’s a year. He needs an un-interrupted supply of wood for his cars – floor boards, steering wheel, dashboard, interior parts. With the help of his cousin’s husband – Edward G. Kingsford, he purchases 313,000 acres of timberland in upper Michigan. The saw mills that produce the wood parts also produce a lot of scrape, and sawdust. Henry’s motto was ‘reduce, reuse, recycle.’ On a camping trip, Henry brought with him a product he’d made at home to use in fire making: wood char mixed with tar and cornstarch. He called it a briquette. It turned out to be long lasting with an even heat. This idea lead to all wood scraps being burned in a retort to make char then combined with cornstarch and pressed into briquette cubes. The product - Kingsford Charcoal Briquettes was named after Kingsford to honor him and sold through Henry’s network of auto dealerships."
