Impressive Charcoal Light Up Technique
A simple way to light up charcoal is to neatly stack charcoal to a height and light up fire starter as illustrated below. The important trick is to wait patiently for the charcoal to be red hot before spreading out.
- Stack up fire starter in a pyramid formation at the centre of the BBQ pit and surround it with charcoal.
- Stack charcoal neatly into a pile until fire starter is covered.
- Light up the fire starter with a piece of paper or matchstick.
- Leave it burning for at least 15 mins till coal is red hot. Spread coals evenly and start grilling.
Warning: Do not light charcoal inside an indoor enclosed area, it is a potential fire hazard.
