How to Grill with Charcoal

How to Grill with Charcoal


  Charcoal Briquettes
  Lighter fluid
  Wood chips
  Tin foil

Cooking Instructions

1. Pour charcoal briquettes into a grill well to form a pyramid about 10 inches high.

2. Douse with lighter fluid.

3. Light with a match, never add lighter fluid to a lit fire.

4. The charcoal is ready when the coals are glowing red and coated with light grey ash, about 25 minutes.

5. To add a smoky taste to your food you can make a tin foil wood chip pocket. First soak wood chips in water overnight.

6. Take a large piece of tin foil and fold in half, then add the wood chips and fold the ends in, but leave a little hole so the smoke can escape once the chips start to heat up.
